Ahead of the FIFA 21 FUT Birthday promo launch, there have been some big ‘leaks’ that have been shared across social media.
The FIFA 21 FUT Birthday promo will begin at 6pm GMT on Friday, March 26, and because it’s likely to be a two-week promo, it’s also likely that FUT fans will get a FUT Birthday Team 1 released into packs on Friday, with a FUT Birthday Team 2 released into packs next Friday, April 2 2021.
But ahead of the official promo release, various social media accounts have shared what appears to be a complete FIFA 21 FUT Birthday Team 1, with some interesting player choices.

EA Sports have also released a confirmed card design for the FIFA 21 FUT Birthday promo, via a brand new FUT 21 loading screen that has appeared within the game mode, which in itself teases a few player inclusions.
The new loading screen also seems to confirm that the FIFA 21 FUT Birthday promo will follow a similar pattern to previous releases, in that players will get either a weak foot or skill move upgrade, in addition to big rating upgrades.
