FIFA 23 World Cup Path to Glory release date was announced as the first Ultimate Team promotion coming in the World Cup update.

Path to Glory returns as a live promotion in FIFA Ultimate Team during the World Cup. The promotion is centered around competing nations in the 2022 World Cup taking place in Qatar. These items operate similarly to Ones to Watch or another live item promotion. Players with special items should upgrade as teams progress through the World Cup. How those items will upgrade and how many times those items upgrade remain to be seen, but expect something along those lines.

FIFA 23 World Cup Path to Glory Release Date Announced

FIFA 23 World Cup Path to Glory is coming on Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. ET.

At that point, it's assumed a player from each nation will be featured in the promotion in some aspect. The only nation that appears to be left off the list is Qatar as the host nation doesn't have a player in the FIFA Ultimate Team database. It's unknown if there will be two teams, say 16 items in one squad and 15 in the other making up 31 competing nations. Or, perhaps what players will be objectives or Squad Building Challenge items.

Thirty-one promotional items in packs makes for an exciting event, but EA Sports might want to spread this event out before the World Cup kicks off.
