With FUT Birthday, EA focuses on the cream of the crop players that dominated previous years of Ultimate Team and brings them back with significant upgrades. As you can see from FUT Birthday’s loading screen, the promo brings a ton of personality and color to the game.

FIFA 22 players have truly taken to the token system after its inclusion in Winter Wildcards and Future Stars. FUT Birthday offers a similar program and you can trade in FUT Birthday tokens for some valuable rewards.

The second is the fact that the promo focuses on 5* skills and 5* weak foot, meaning the players involved will have one or the other.
