FIFA 22 is finally here, and with it comes promos, events, and a raft of special cards ⁠— we’ve put together the confirmed & leaked dates for all Ultimate Team’s biggest spectacles, from Ones to Watch and Team of the Year, to Team of the Season, FUTMAS, Ratings Refresh, and plenty more.

One thing’s for sure in FIFA: there’s always another promo.

EA SPORTS has ramped up their event schedule in a big way the past few FIFA cycles, blasting out special cards and promo packs basically every other week.

The deluge of upgraded stars and must-collect FUT cards hit a fever pitch in FIFA 21, and Dexerto is expecting more of the same (and maybe more) as EA rolls out all the special FIFA 22 moments across the next twelve months.


From Team of the Year and FUTMAS, to Summer Heat, FUT Birthday, and more, here’s when we’ll see all of Ultimate Team’s iconic promos in FIFA 22.

The FIFA 22 Ultimate Team promos will come thick and fast, like every year.

Which FUT promo is next in FIFA 22?

The next promo coming FIFA 22 is the Road to the Knockouts Euro-themed team.

Beyond that, Dexerto is expecting to see two Rulebreakers (originally called “Scream” before a switch a year ago) arrive at the end of October. The Halloween branded FUT promo missed a possible Oct. 22 release date, but Oct. 29 still fits perfectly. Several promo packs and SBCs should also be included.

After spooky season wraps up, the FIFA 22 focus should shift back to Champions League hype, with more Road to the Final squads dropping in November.

FIFA 22 promo start dates

EA SPORTS has yet to confirm an exact list of all the Ultimate Team promos coming this cycle, but the FIFA publishers usually stick to a fairly standard schedule.

Iconic FUT events like Team of the Year, Road to the Final, Headliners, FUTMAS (now dubbed “Freeze”), Future Stars, and more are sure to arrive in FIFA 22 around the same time as usual, loaded with stunning special cards.

Here are the expected dates for FIFA 22’s promos.
