Fantasy Fut promo FIFA 22

The current FIFA 22 promo may look familiar to Ultimate Team players as a new take on a classic, so here’s everything you need to know about Fantasy FUT.

The release of FUT Birthday Team 2 established it as one of the best Ultimate Team promos to hit FIFA 22 so far. As a two-week promo, FUT Birthday came to a close on March 18 which ushered in a familiar Ultimate Team promo under a new name.

FIFA 21’s What If promo is making its return to Ultimate Team under the name Fantasy FUT. While Fantasy FUT is heavily inspired by What If, it does introduce some major changes that players will be interested in.

Here’s everything you need to know about Fantasy FUT including its release date and featured players.

The promo will run for two weeks and Team 2 is has released on March 25, 2022.

What is the Fantasy FUT Ultimate Team promo?

Fantasy FUT FIFA 22 upgrade concept

FIFA 21’s What If promo saw players earn upgrades if their clubs met specific real-life criteria and according to the easy-to-understand graphic above, a similar concept will be applied to Fantasy FUT.

Of course, each featured player will receive an initial upgrade from their standard card. In addition, players will have three possible avenues to receive an upgrade:

  • Play 3 matches in the next 5 games
  • Win 1 match in the next 5 games
  • Attackers and Midfielders score 1 goal or earn 1 assist in 5 games OR Defenders and Goalkeepers keep 1 clean sheet in the next 5 games

The key detail to note concerning these upgrades is that only domestic league games will count toward the objectives and the games will be tracked as of April 1.
