Based on past years, EA Sports will mark the occasion with special FUT Birthday items, themed Flashbacks, Objectives, daily engagement objectives, SBCs, and lots more.
Needless to say, the main event is the announcement of the FUT Birthday team.
Players included in the Birthday team (or teams) will feature upgraded ratings and possible skill move boosts.
In the run up to the big reveal, fans have been having fun predicting some of the players that will be included. There have even been one or two dubious leaks.
One such leak/prediction features players such as Jamie Vardy, Leroy Sane, Thiago, Ferland Mendy, Inki Williams and Ivan Perisic.
EA Sports did something similar last year, as well as special engagement streak rewards, weekend player picks and “FUT Favourite” flashback SBCs.
“The past 11 years of Ultimate Team have ushered in countless players we won’t forget any time soon,” reads a post from the FIFA 20 Birthday celebration page.
“A select group of “FUT Favourites” will be released throughout the event via SBC, with a Flashback item type.”
“Throughout the event, earn rewards for consistent daily engagement in FUT. FUT Birthday Daily Objectives will be released throughout FUT Birthday.
“Complete all daily objectives to unlock the FUT Birthday Daily Completionist group to earn additional rewards.”
Finally, Bonus Weekend League Player Picks are bonus objectives for players participating in the FUT Champions Weekend League.
“Back again for a limited time, the second weekend of FUT Birthday will feature a special bonus objective offering additional player picks for those participating in the FUT Champions Weekend League.”
Express Online will update this article with the full line-up and list of bonuses from 6pm UK time on March 26.
