Here’s what to expect.

What is pre-season prediction?

Details on the promotion are currently under wraps, but a promotion screen features light blue cards suggesting that TOTS (Team of the Season) card could be on their way.

TOTSSF (Team of the Season so far) cards were released during the pause of football across the world and some are now speculating that a second up-to-date edition of blue cards could be on their way.

Alternatively EA could be set to release cards to issue players who have transferred clubs with new cards.

If that's the case Chelsea fans could soon be able to get their hands on up-to-date versions of new signings Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Could the game be linked to Fifa 21?

The countdown load screen features Fifa 21 cover art suggesting a link between the two games.

The promotion could well allow players to grind on the current game in order to win rewards for the future edition.

One of the most frustrating factors of Ultimate Team in recent seasons has been the need to disregard your old team and start from scratch on the new game – a rewards system could be a way of rewarding loyal users.

When is the promo launched?

The promotion is due out at 6pm BST on July 29.

When can I play Fifa 21?

Fifa 21 is currently scheduled to release on Friday 9 October.

It will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, as well as next-gen consoles the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Where’s the cheapest place to pre-order it?

Fifa 21 is already available to preorder for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC here.

These pre-orders are through EA directly though, so expect them to be far from the cheapest price available.

We’ll update this article with cheaper offers as and when we find them.
