When is FIFA 23 FUT Birthday? Leaked players, start date, more

FUT Birthday is a fan-favorite FIFA Ultimate Team promo that never fails to deliver — and it’s expected to make a return in FIFA 23. 

The FUT Birthday promo is a yearly event that celebrates the anniversary of FIFA Ultimate Team. FIFA 23 will mark Ultimate Team’s 14-year anniversary.

FIFA 22’s FUT Birthday event introduced new player items, SBCs, objectives, login bonuses, and FUT Birthday Swaps.

Here’s everything you need to know about the promo, and what to expect in EA SPORTS’ current title, FIFA 23.

FUT Birthday festivities usually includes a number of special cards.

When is FUT Birthday 23?

FIFA Ultimate Team made its first appearance on March 19, 2009 during FIFA 09 – so fans can always expect FUT Birthday to be celebrated around the same time.

While some players may have forecasted it in early March, just before that usual date, EA, instead, released the Fantasy FUT Promo and FUT Ballers. That means that FUT Birthday is coming later than usual on Friday, March 24. It’ll likely last for two weeks before we move on to the next promo on the calendar.
