EA Sports' FIFA 23 gives fans a taste of the present and the future with its Ultimate Team offerings - and Future Stars is about as good a promotional event as you'll find in the online mode.


Using data from real-life performances and stats, EA has added a list of young players bursting at the seams with potential. These are the best young players in football (under 23) who haven't hit the heights of mega-stardom yet.

Each special card will have four versions, with their Overall rating increasing each time. You will need to complete FUT Objectives to unlock better versions of each player.

Future Stars Team 2 has now been revealed, along with the list of swaps, tokens, and rewards. Read on below for everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Future Stars.

When is the FIFA 23 Future Stars release date?

Team 1 of the FIFA 23 Future Stars promo released at 6pm GMT on 3rd February 2023. A further mini-release took place on Sunday 5th February 2023.

Team 2 was released at 6pm GMT on Friday 10th February. Judging by previous form, we would hope to see another mini-release on or around Sunday 12th February.
