FUT Player Days is returning as a promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Here’s what we know and what we might see when things begin to go live.

FIFA 21, like FIFA 20 before it, has used a number of classic promos. We’ve had Future Stars, Team of the Year, and Ones to Watch, but EA have changed things up as well. We’ve had new promos like What If, Freeze, and Rulebreakers in the place of FUTMas and Halloween.

As we’ve turned a new leaf and moved into the new year, many fans have been asking for Winter Refresh and January Ones to Watch.


They haven’t happened, but it has finally been confirmed that FUT Player Days will be returning before making way for FUT Birthday. So, here’s what we know.

In the past, FUT Player Days have given us some of the best cards in the game.

FIFA 21 FUT Player Days release date & time

In the past, FUT Player Days has been all about the fans – just as the name suggests. New packs have been released, there is an abundance of new content, and there are free packs – as well as discounts.

Last year, the promo released on March 6 – and it seems EA is sticking to that same timetable here, with a 2021 stating date for Player Days on Monday, March 8.

Additionally, CONEMBOL cards were added during Player Days as well in the past. However, they’re already in FIFA 21.  We could see the return of top TOTW cards being released – that’s been a staple of FUT Player days. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.


FUT 21 Player Days Tier Engagements

Tier Engagements could very well return as a carryover from FIFA 20. It’s a simple concept, the more days you’ve played of FUT, the better the packs you’re entitled to.

Last year, it worked out like this:

  • 11-60 – Days Jumbo Premium Gold Pack
  • 61-118 – Days Prime Gold Players Pack
  • 119-155 – Days Rare Mega Pack
  • 156+ Days – Ultimate Pack

FUT 21 Player Days predictions

If, as we’ve mentioned, the best TOTW cards return in the player days promos, then it could shape it to be a pretty nice set of re-releases.

We’ve already had a 95-overall Ronaldo, a 94-rated Messi, a 92-overall Neymar, and a 92-rated Jan Oblak. These would make up a nice set of cards, even if it’s only 10 or so that are released.


  • Cristiano Ronaldo – ST – 95
  • Lionel Messi – CF – 94
  • Robert Lewandowski – ST – 94
  • Karim Benzema – CF – 94
  • Neymar – LM – 92
  • Mo Salah – RW – 92
  • Jan Oblak – GK – 92
  • Sadio Mane – LW – 91
  • Josh Kimmich – CDM – 91
  • Thibaut Courtois – GK – 91
  • Sergio Ramos – CB – 90
  • Raheem Sterling – LW – 90
  • Bruno Fernandes – CAM – 90
  • Harry Kane – ST – 89
  • Toni Kroos – CDM – 89
  • Heung Min Son – LM – 89

FUT 21 Player Days pack offers & rewards

On top of the bonuses and pack offers, we could also see the arrival of new ICON swaps. Again, they were a part of last year’s promo, and it makes sense to bring them back this year – fans love them, after all.

In terms of the pack offers, last year had Buy One Get One Free on packs in a lightning round. It makes sense to do something similar again, but, it’s all on EA and what they choose to do.

FUT 21 Player Days SBCs & objectives

Like every promo, the Player Days should have plenty of new Objectives and SBCs to complete.

These SBCs could be ICON swaps, as we’ve noted, or they could be focused on current cards. We won’t know until they’re out. However, once they are released, you’ll be able to find solutions on FIFA page.


As more information comes out about the next promo, we’ll drop updates over on our Twitter accounts – UltimateTeamUK and FUTWatch.
