The FIFA 21 FUT Birthday card design was revealed March 24, two days ahead of the promotion releasing on Friday.
FUT Birthday is an annual FIFA Ultimate Team promotion in which EA Sports and the community celebrate the game's anniversary. In the past, FUT Birthday was designed around position changed items. It opened up new squad building possibilities and turned items like Virgil Van Dijk into a striker and Zlatan Ibrahimovic into a center back.
Last year, EA Sports introduced the Shapeshifters promotion before FUT Birthday which instead focused on position changes. FUT Birthday that year instead focused on statistic, weak foot and skill move upgrades.
FIFA 21 FUT Birthday Card Design Revealed
Since FIFA 21 already had the Freeze promotion in December which focused on position changes, it's expected that last year's theme will carry over. Of course, EA Sports can throw a curveball in and change the theme once again.
The card design was revealed ahead of the promotion sporting a purple background with red, white and blue features where the player image will go. Last year's card design was centered around birthday cake and it seems that theme is returning in a similar way. Based on the full loading screen, it looks like cards are designed like presents.
FIFA 21 FUT Birthday kicks off March 26 at 2 p.m. ET.
