It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a major international football competition, but with the Summer here we’re finally set to play the Euro 2020 tournament. FIFA 21 is ready to celebrate the occasion as the Festival of FUTball promotion is slated to return to Ultimate Team.

The last time we saw Festival of FUTball was for the World Cup in 2018, and it featured loads of new content including: “Path to Glory” and “Classic International Heroes” boosted cards, special themed SBC’s, and themed FUT packs.

Euro 2020 will host some of the top talents in world football as international powerhouses France, Belgium, England, and Italy will roll out some impressive lineups when the games get underway. For now, EA Sports teased the promotion on the loading screen with a countdown to the event.
