Which FUT promo is next in FIFA 22?

The next event on the cards should be FIFA 22 FUTTIES, a fan favorite promo that is set to return for another year. FUTTIES is usually a celebration of the very best cards the game has provided so far, bringing back the most overpowered special items.

Fans can look forward to the most valuable promo players from FIFA 22 coming back to packs, as well as tonnes of SBSs and objectives.
