FIFA 21 FUT Birthday start date was apparently leaked on Twitter disappointing fans who expected the promotion to start March 19.

FUT Birthday is an annual FIFA Ultimate Team promotion celebrating the game mode's release years ago. In the past, the promotion featured ratings boosts and position changes. The latest release in FIFA 20 instead focused on skill moves and weak foot upgrades. FIFA 20 items such as Allan Saint-Maximin, Kylian Mbappe and more were some of the most popular cards released during the event.

For many, FUT Birthday is their favorite promotion of the year.

According to Twitter account and known leaker KingLangpard stated that FUT Birthday is expected start March 26 and be a two-week long promotion. This would be the second straight weekend in March without a major promotion. Yes, there was the FUT Player Days event that ran last week, but it's biggest focus was 2-for-1 packs which upset fans.

Most FIFA Ultimate Team promotions are now two weeks long, a choice fans have debated being a good or bad feature since FIFA 20.

EA Sports and FIFA Ultimate Team have been at the center of controversy in March amid allegations that employees were selling items to players for real cash on a black market. EA Sports responded twice to the allegations stating an investigation was underway.

The company also accidentally issued free packs to an undisclosed amount of players.
