FUT Birthday Predictions & Rumours
With FUT Birthday prepared to release a host of 5-star skill & 5-star weak foot promo cards, let’s take a look at some cards that we’d love to see released.
In FIFA 22 we had a host of incredible FUT Birthday cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo & Dani Alves, so it’s safe to assume we can expect some heavy hitters this year.
So far in FIFA 23, we’ve had the following players rumoured to be arriving in the FUT Birthday promo!
- João Félix – In the first FUT Birthday loading screen
- Bernardo Silva – In the latest FUT Birthday loading screen
- Darwin Núñez
- Thomas Muller
- Oleksandr Zinchenko
Here are a small collection of cards we’d love to see included in FUT Birthday this year, paying homage to their influential cards from past FUT titles. It’s worth mentioning, these players have been selected as they don’t currently have a tradeable promo card in FUT 23.
Let us know who you’d like to see in the upcoming FUT Birthday promo below!
