FIFA 21 FUT Birthday was officially teased in the game's loading screen section after leaks and rumors hinted at the event starting March 26.

FUT Birthday is an annual FIFA Ultimate Team promotion celebrating the game mode's release. In the past, FUT Birthday was known for including position changed items opening up new ways to build squads. Last year, FUT Birthday focused on skill move and weak foot upgrades instead of position changes thanks to the introduction of the Shapeshifters promotion.

It seems last year's theme will remain considering FUT Freeze already included position changed items back in December..

FUT Birthday should be the last major promotion before Team of the Season. There might be other promotions included between those two, like Team of the Knockout Stage for European competitions, but FUT Birthday cards will probably be more popular.

FIFA 20's promotional team included cards like Allan Saint-Maximin, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard, Virgil Van Dijk, Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale. Some of these items remained extremely popular even through events like TOTSSF and Summer Heat. Expect some of the same names to be featured this year as well. Van Dijk has only received two special cards this year, a Record Breaker and Team of the Year, because he went down with a season-ending injury against Everton on Oct. 17.

Bale as well only has a Ones to Watch item and a single in-form. Upgrading him and Van Dijk would be strong editions to Premier League squads.
