FUT Ballers, a new Ultimate Team advertisement for FIFA 23, has surfaced online. Below is what we currently know. Although it’s the last year under the FIFA brand and the World Cup occurred in the middle of the season, the FIFA 23 promo cycle has been somewhat typical for Ultimate Team.
Over the past few months, EA SPORTS has only released a few new promos, such as FUT Centurions and World Cup Tales, while bringing back a number of fan favorites. The final FUT Birthday celebration is scheduled to be the next promo. Still, when leakers were able to obtain some preliminary information, that promo may overlap with another new one, FUT Ballers. This is what we do know.
When do FUT Ballers in FIFA 23 begin?
If you’ve lately played Ultimate Team, the in-game loading screens that have recently appeared have given you an early look at FUT Ballers — sounds like footballers. — thanks. According to those loading screens, the promo will begin on Friday, March 17, 2023, at 11 AM PT/2 PM ET/6 PM GMT/7 PM CEST. Enjoy it while it lasts because it will only last a week before FUT’s Birthday officially starts.
Leaked players from FIFA 23’s FUT Ballers
Reliable FIFA leaker FUTSheriff has so far managed to identify three players who will appear in the promo, all of whom are Premier League players. We anticipate more to follow suit and feature a few different leagues in the promotion, but for now, here is the list:
- Chelsea’s Mason Mount
- Spurs’ Aranut Danjuma
- Liverpool’s Alex Oxlader-Chamberlain
What is the FUT Ballers system in FIFA 23?
So how will everything operate? According to FUTSheriff, these players won’t be included in packs. Instead, they will be accessible through various SBCs and targets, much to how the Showdown Series has operated. Also, it has been mentioned that the cards will undergo gradual upgrades similar to the Adidas 99 promotion from the previous year. This would imply that each player’s chosen attribute would have the potential to reach its maximum value of 99 while simultaneously starting with a significant advantage.
Although this has yet to be verified, the leaker has been accurate the entire year, making it difficult not to believe them. We’ll update this section as soon as we have more information, including confirmation of additional players. So make sure to return for more!
