FIFA 22 - What are Ultimate Team Winter Wildcards?
Fifa Coins

FIFA 22 Holiday season is here and while many gamers were expecting another FUTMAS/Freeze release, EA Sports decided to bring a better and similar version of this holiday-themed event, called Winter Wildcards. FIFA fans have experienced  FUT 22 Versus and are ready for another round of holiday promos. As we explained earlier, FUTMAS was canceled and replaced with Freeze last year on FIFA 21. This year, EA Sports decided to upgrade FUT Freeze with Versus to spice things up! A new promo is here to take Versus' place as the festive event! Things now seem to be even more exciting, because the Wildcards look pretty good.
Let's talk more about it and see what to expect.

FUT 22 Winter Wildcards

Since this Christmas event is also a replacement for FUTMAS and Freeze, it has similar attributes as the previous promos. The whole event is a mixture of the mentioned promos that comes with an "ICON Swap" additional. FIFA 22 Winter Wildcards event releases strong upgrades and permanent boosts to some selected players' positions and skills, based on past, present, and potential future of the FUT players' upgrades. You get to play the usual SBCs with a swap program which is similar to ICONS Swap. But what does that mean? There will be special tasks for completing in FIFA 2 Ultimate Team in order to receive Wildcards tokens. These tokens can be exchanged (swapped!) for various Wildcard players and packs. The promo started on December 17, and there have been 2 revealed teams so far. Players should predict Winter Wildcards to work as the dynamic Shapeshifters from FIFA 21, except there will be stat boosts along with it as well.

Winter Wildcards Team 1

So now that you know how this festive event works, let's take a look at the first team of FUT 22 Winter Wildcards:
Please note that the first team was available for grabbing via FUT 22 pack items until December 23. The second team has been replaced after that.
