FC 24 Winter Wildcards
The EA Sports FC 24 Winter Wildcards promotion is set to begin on Friday, Dec. 22 following the conclusion of UEFA Team of the Group Stage.
Winter Wildcards has been a holiday-mainstay in Ultimate Team for a number of years now. It is arguably one of the most popular promotions of the year outside of Team of the Year and Team of the Season. As leaks continue to be as prevalent as ever in the FC Ultimate Team community, EA Sports has stepped up efforts this year to directly tell players what to expect for a given week. Though, the company's latest post on the game's official X account goes a step even further.
EA Sports revealed all the player and Icon SBCs that will arrive during FC 24 Winter Wildcards. Check it out.
FC 24 Winter Wildcards: Full List of Player and Icon SBCs Arriving During Promotion
Here's the full schedule for player and Icon SBCs during FC 24 Winter Wildcards:

Of the players listed, this promotion looks nuts considering there will also be special objective players, Upgrade SBCs and, of course, a promotional team available in packs. It might also include a full season progress integration.
As well, the SBC cards are just heavily Arsenal themed. Of the SBCs coming, four are either current or former Arsenal players. Four out of 15 players included should make Arsenal fans excited as they continue to upgrade their Ultimate Team squads. Though, there's questions raised around how high rated some of these Icon SBCs will be, plus the ratings for Martinelli and Havertz considering they are popular Evolution players.
When Does FC 24 Winter Wildcards Start?
Winter Wildcards will begin on Friday, Dec. 22 at 1 p.m. ET. At that time, player SBCs will be released, new objectives and a promotional team in packs. UEFA Team of the Group Stage cards will leave packs.
Will FC 24 Winter Wildcards Have Two Promotional Teams?
Considering the number of SBCs confirmed by EA Sports, it's likely Winter Wildcards will have two Teams available in packs. Plus, this will lead nicely into a buffer promotion before Team of the Year. Or, even better for fans, Winter Wildcards segues right into TOTY.
