Not only are rewards available but a spot at FIFA Global Series is also available for those who can qualify.

Co-Op Public Matchmaking is also coming to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. Gamers can team up with other members from FUT Community and then use a custom squad against other duos in FUT Friendlies.

FUT Stadium customization will bring more options including a new VIP Area and “enhanced crowd elements” such as Flags, Cards, and Banners. Last but not least, FUT Heroes are back. See about the pre-order offer on those in the section below.
