EA Sports

FIFA 23 Black Friday content is coming with the Road to the FIFA World Cup promotion.

Black Friday is an annual FIFA Ultimate Team promotion which traditionally marks the start of promotional pack lightning rounds, some sort of special card and a Best of TOTW so far. Since the World Cup is ongoing, Black Friday this year will have a World Cup tie-in featuring a new card type and the first set of Campaign Icons. The latter is a new addition to FIFA Ultimate Team after EA Sports removed Prime Icon Moments as a card type in FUT.
