FUT Birthday Predictions

Here are just a couple of our predictions for who we think will headline the FUT Birthday promo.

Check out the full list of predictions here.

Neymar (OVR 91 - 95)

GET THE PARTY STARTED - It wouldn't be a party without Neymar

Neymar has occasionally lined up as a false nine for PSG, and we think the Brazilian would excel in the role.

With a five-star weak foot and skill move already, Neymar could become the forward to have on Ultimate Team.


Frenkie de Jong (OVR 85- 91)

TOTAL FOOTBALL - De Jong can do it all in central midfield

A midfielder who can pass, score, dribble and defend - it would be interesting to see what EA would do with Frenkie de Jong for FUT Birthday.

Perhaps giving him a five-star weak foot or four-star skill moves (or more) could really take his item to the next level.

When is FUT Birthday coming out?

FUT Birthday is arriving this week, with the official start date on Friday, 26 March.

PARTY TIME: FIFA fans can get excited as EA has officially announced that the promo is returning

We will most likely see the event go live at approximately 1 pm EST / 6 pm GMT.

We are hoping to see a FUT loading screen teaser arrive on Thursday, 25 March at approximately 1 pm EST / 6 pm GMT.

FUT Birthday is the next event coming on FUT 21, but take a look at all the potential next promos here.

@KingLangpard on Twitter has suggested that FIFA 21's FUT Birthday promo could last two weeks, which would mean two insane squads for us to enjoy!


How does the FUT Birthday promo work?

FUT Birthday celebrates the anniversary of Ultimate Team being introduced to FIFA.

The FUT Birthday Promo sees some of the game's most popular cards receive insane position changes and stat boosts!

BRAZILIAN BEAST: EA could release a CDM FUT Birthday David Luiz card

Last year's promo included some crazy position changes for top-tier players, such as a CAM Griezmann and ST Eden Hazard card.

Ultimate Team celebrates its 13th birthday this year, so we could see something incredible as FUT hits the teens.

As the years have gone by more content has been introduced, and now we expect promo packs, SBCs, objectives and a new promo squad too.
