The next FIFA 22 promo is no longer a mystery as the Silver Stars Series is now live in Ultimate Team and here’s everything you need to know about it.

EA doesn’t follow a predetermined FIFA 22 promo schedule inspired by past games as they often enjoy introducing new promo concepts to players. Most of the time, this leaves us guessing at what the next promo might be.

This is precisely what has occurred with the Silver Stars Series promo that follows the RTTF promo in FIFA 22 and the concept is a brand new inclusion to Ultimate Team.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Silver Stars Series promo.

The Silver Stars promo has been confirmed by EA and will focus on highlighting some excellent Silver cards. The Silver Stars Series FIFA 22 promo went live on February 25.

As is customary with FIFA 22 promos released on Friday, the new content was released at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET.

Admittedly there has been a ton of confusion surrounding the Silver Stars Series promo. At first, it was believed that Silver Stars would receive a full-fledged promo but it seems that EA have decided to offer a minimal rollout. As of now, four new Silvers Stars players can be found in Ultimate Team.

With each day until the promo is completed, EA will release additional Silver Stars cards. The first four cards released as a part of the promo are only available through SBCs and Objectives, meaning there aren’t any new promo cards in packs.

Early reactions from players are quite negative as these cards fail to keep up with the game’s current meta. However, there are some valuable packs to earn by completing Silver-themed Objectives. We recommend saving these packs for an upcoming promo.

As the in-game Ultimate Team menu explains, players will be able to complete Objectives and SBCs to earn new Silver Stars cards. It is strange to see the dates in the text above appear as March 4 to March 9 since the first four cards we released on February 25.

Here’s a list of Silver Stars Series players that are currently available:

  • Reinier Jesus – Borussia Dortmund – SBC
  • Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City – Flashback SBC
  • Joelinton – Newcastle United – Objective
  • Talles Magno – New York City FC – Objective
  • Rico Henry – Brentford – Objective
  • Jake Cooper – Milwall – Objective
  • Kevin Malcuit – Napoli – Objective
  • Rayan Cherki – Lyon – Objective
  • Maxim Leitsch – Vfl Bochum – Objective
  • Harisson Marcelin – AS Monaco – SBC
  • Marco Reus – Borussia Dortmund – Flashback SBC
  • Wylan Cyprian – FC Nantes – SBC
  • Anthony Elanga – Manchester United – SBC
  • Paul Pogba – Manchester United – Flashback SBC

That’s everything we know about the Silver Stars Series promo in FIFA 22 but we’ll be sure to update this section once more Silver Stars cards are added to the game.

How to complete FIFA 22 Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC

Ultimate Team players can secure a dominant midfielder by completing the Thomas Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC in FIFA 22.

Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC FIFA 22

French midfielder Thomas Lemar is available via SBC during the FIFA 22 TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC with the cheapest solution.

The TOTS promo is currently shining a light on LaLiga with players doing their best to secure the elite that Spain has to offer. EA have delivered a few SBCs as a part of the LaLiga TOTS promo including a Flashback Isco SBC and Iago Aspas TOTS SBC.

Now, players can get their hands on Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Lemar. While the French International usually plays out wide on the left-wing, this TOTS card makes for an interesting change by having him positioned as a CM.

Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC, including the cheapest solution.

While LaLiga has some incredible CMs to pick from, Lemar’s French nationality is a huge asset, and you’ll be able to get him into a variety of teams outside of LaLiga given the popularity of French players. Due to the position change, Lemar’s Physicality and Defending stats have received huge boosts.

You can utilize Lemar as a CAM, CM, and even CDM, with great success, and with his 94 Short Passing and 93 Long Passing, Lemar will prove to be an excellent distributor of the ball regardless of his positioning in your midfield. Lastly, his 95 Stamina will have you covering the entire pitch for 90 minutes.

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: France, Top Form, and LaLiga. With a value of around 210,000 coins, Lemar is only slightly overpriced, but those who have extra fodder should consider completing this FIFA 22 SBC.

The Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC will be available for one week as it expires on June 2. The requirements shouldn’t take too long to gather, so one week is plenty of time to submit the necessary squads.

If you completed Isco and Aspas or recently packed a LaLiga TOTS card you may want to give TOTS Lemar a try. In addition to complementing LaLiga squads, Lemar will fit in nicely with squads boasting several players from France.

How to complete FIFA 22 Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC

Players can secure one or both of Fabinho and Rodrygo as part of the new FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Showdown SBC.

Fabinho Rodrygo FIFA 22 Showdown SBC

As the iconic Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid approaches, FIFA 22 players will have the opportunity to complete the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

While Ultimate Team players are currently focusing on securing the best TOTS cards available, EA have released two more top cards with the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

Players in your squad from the previously released Premier League TOTS and LaLiga TOTS are sure to provide excellent linking options with Fabhinho and Rodrygo.

The Champions League Final will take place on May 28 and the winner of the match will receive an in-game upgrade of +2. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

The base version of Showdown Fabinho is excellent, however, without the +2 upgrade, you may have a hard time justifying the steep price you’ll have to pay. Nonetheless, if you’re flush with coins and fodder, Fabinho is a great addition even at this stage of the game.

Fabinho is one of the best CDMs in the game and if you run a Premier League squad, he’ll be a massive improvement from TOTS Rice, Fernandes, Silva, and Fred. His 94 Standing Tackle and 92 Interceptions will surely result in Fabinho winning many loose balls in the middle of the pitch.

If you completed the Isco SBC, then Rodrygo is a no-brainer. The winger is slightly cheaper than Fabinho but still quite expensive. You’ll certainly be able to justify the price if Rodrygo moves to 94 overall.

5* skill moves and 4* weak foot is a great combination, while 97 Agility, Sprint Speed, and Acceleration make him incredibly quick. He also has the movement stats like 96 Balance and 95 Dribbling to go with that pace.

How to complete FIFA 22 Showdown Fabinho SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Liverpool, Brazil, Premier League, and Top Form. Costing around 470,000 coins, Fabinho is considered a luxury option at CDM. You’ll have to gather a ton of fodder and coins to complete this FIFA 22 SBC.

The Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBCs are available until May 28 (10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST) before Liverpool and Real Madrid go head to head in France.

Given their prices, most players will have to choose between one or the other, so it really comes down to who you think will win the final. Both cards will feel incredible in-game when boosted to 94, but they’re still great options at 92.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week: TOTW 36 & featured players

EA have announced another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. We’ve got everything you need to know, as well as the full FIFA 22 TOTW 36 lineup.

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 36, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams and we’ve got all the details listed for you.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the upcoming TOTS.

One of the mode’s oldest promotions is ‘Team of the Week’, which offers players a weekly batch of upgraded cards, based on real-life player performances the previous week, to help build out their squads.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW news, so be sure to check back here every week.

Here are the full updates for FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 36.

FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 36

The FIFA 22 TOTW 36 is here and the star power is shining this week with Manchester City and A.C Milan being crowned champions of their leagues on the final day of the season. For those who like to try out new cards and have the funds to do so, FIFA’s TOTW is great.

Check out the full squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 36 here.

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Players can’t receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While an in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.
