The feeling that the popular FUT Freeze promo had taken a hit has only added to the concern in the community and but now it seems those fears are unfounded as the promo appears to be back, now called Winter Wildcard. , FIFA 22 players will once again be able to choose footballers playing in very different positions than they play in real life with a nice boost in stats as well.
At this time, the only information we have that this is happening is from leaks, as reliable as it often is, please take the following promotion information with a pinch of salt.
FIFA 22 Winter Wildcard Release Date
While there's no official release date (or confirmation that the promotion is actually happening), leaks and the usual FIFA game release schedule suggest that Winter Wildcard will start on Friday, December 17 at 18 p.m.
How does the FIFA 22 Winter Wildcard promo work?
Winter Wildcard will serve boosted cards that change a player's base position to another area of the field.
Last year's FUT Freeze saw Manchester United's Wan-Bissaka move into centre-back and Liverpool's Roberto Firmino move into central midfield.
Usually, the chosen player's stats already complete the position, and while they get a boost to make them even more applicable, the real prize is team chemistry and opportunities.
It is also expected that there will be 5* skill buffs and weak feet.
