Let’s talk Fifa 23 Winter Wildcards. One of the most popular promos since its introduction to EA’s flagship franchise, Winter Wildcards is set to be the first bit of fresh content for Ultimate Team following the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup. And the early signs indicate EA are going big with it. With players already being leaked ahead of the promo’s release, check out Gamelevate for everything we know far about Fifa 23 Winter Wildcards!
What Is The Winter Wildcards Promo?
Winter Wildcards is a special winter-themed promotion offered to players in Fifa Ultimate Team. The promo made its debut in Fifa 22 as a replacement for the FUT Freeze feature, which had itself taken the place of FUTmas in Fifa 21.
Fifa 23 has already been getting into the festive spirit with plenty of Winter Wildcard swap token rewards, and the first batch of players for Team 1 of the promo have already been leaked on social media. Superstars from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Liverpool have all been teased, so here’s everything you need to know about the release in one handy place.
Fifa 23 Winter Wildcards Release Date
Team 1 for the Winter Wildcards promo will be released on Friday, December 23, 2022 at 6pm GMT / 1pm ET / 10am PT.
Team 2 will be released Friday, December 30, 2022 at 6pm GMT / 1pm ET / 10am PT. The promo is set to end on Friday, January 6, 2023, the same day the swap tokens come to an end.
What Players Are Going To Be Included?
So far, the leaked players included in Team 1 of Winter Wildcards include:
- Raphael Varane (Man United)
- Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
- Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)
- Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
- Adama Traore (Wolves)
- Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle United)
- Nicolas Pepe (Nice)
It’s a pretty safe bet that players included in the promo will come with some heavily juiced-up stats, making them potentially meta-breaking inclusions in players’ squads going into the new year.
Also, a quick word on the card design for the promo – it looks snazzy as anything. A dark green and gold color combination with 3d baubles and snowflakes background complete a fittingly festive look.
There will also be a new kit in that style players can get their hands on over the course of the promotion.
