FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has seen plenty of promotions come and go, injecting dozens of high-rated players into the mix. But which of this year’s promos has been the best? Check out our rankings right here.
A solid batch of new special cards can instantly change a player’s squad, and shake up the entire meta in the process.
But which of FIFA 22’s promos has made the biggest splash, and which have come and gone with little fanfare? We’ve ranked every single one, below.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team promotions ranked
Not all promotions are made equal. Some give us cards that are must-haves to be competitive in the higher ranks, and some are relegated to simply being SBC fodder.
These are the best and worst promotions, and special cards, that have hit FIFA 22 this year.
- FUT Heroes
- Road to the Knockouts
- Ones to Watch
- Adidas Numbers Up
We’ll be adding every fresh promo as and when they are out, so be sure to check back here for our new rankings.
Best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team promotions
5. Adidas Numbers Up
One of the new promos in FIFA 22, EA’s collaboration with sporting giant Adidas turned out to be slightly disappointing. Not to say there weren’t any cards worth investing in – the Diogo Jota and Eder Militao will certainly keep popping up throughout the year.
The problem here is that many cards, despite the staggered upgrades, feel behind the power curve. This is mainly because stats that get boosted to 99 are dedicated by the boots they wear, meaning they aren’t always the ones that would make them useable.
Take Dortmund’s Mats Hummels, for example. While the prospect of 99 passing is nice, keeping his pace at 60 pretty much makes using him in-game impossible.
4. Ones to Watch
Ones to Watch is one of FIFA’s oldest promos, kicking off the season in style. In FIFA 22, OTW looked promising after an unbelievable summer transfer window that saw some of the world’s biggest names switch clubs.
The issue, and the reason it ranks so low, is that most of the best cards are yet to receive an upgrade. The likes of David Alaba and Memphis Depay have had healthy upgrades thanks to their in-forms, but the Lukakus and Sanchos have been rooted to their normal ratings.
This could all change, though. All it takes is a few tasty TOTW cards and this could still be one of the best Ones to Watch promos in recent memory.
3. Road to the Knockouts
This was the first promo to really provide FUT fans with players that were worth changing their team for. Some of the cards across Teams 1 and 2, even before any upgrades, have been terrorizing FUT Champs players for weeks.
The likes of RTTK Heung Min Son and Marquinhos are meta cards that will no doubt be useable until Team of the Season. And they’re only going to get better as the upgrades for qualifying start to rollout.
Then there are cards like Mukiele and Tonali, which plug position gaps in certain leagues and them more appealing to build a team in. And, of course, there was also THAT Fekir SBC which gave us an all-time great FIFA player used in thousands of teams.
2. FUT Heroes
FUT Heroes is an idea that fans have been calling for many years, and even though EA are clearly just testing the waters right now, it’s been a rousing success. These cult heroes have been a nice bridge between normal cards and the elusive ICONS.
David Ginola and Abedi Pele have established themselves as meta players that aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Even some of the cheaper options like Fernando Morientes and Robbie Keane are enough to give players clammy hands when defending.
The only real downsides are how few of them are, and the multiple Hero Upgrades that have lowered their market values. Hopefully, EA double down next year and give us more of these cards.
In many ways, this year’s Rulebreakers was everything you could ask for in a FIFA promotion. It conjured up some brilliant cards that will be used all year and made top players who don’t normally fit the meta a viable option.
Fan favorites like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Erling Haaland, usually suffer because of their poor pace. Now, they have been made into some of the best cards in their respective positions.
It also threw creative SBCs where you choose between two versions of the same Rulebreaker into the mix. This gave players the chance to fine-tune their team in a way that no other promo allowed.
Die-hard fans will be hoping for more promotions like this as the season moves forward.
Those were our rankings of every FIFA 22 promotion. Do you agree with our choices? Be sure to let us know on our social.

Spain solution – Cost: 33,000 coins
