Despite the ongoing What If FUT promo, EA Sports launched the FUT Player days promo on Monday, but what is it all about?
The FIFA 21 What If Team 2 was released on Friday March 5, which featured special items for players like Dries Mertens, Lucas Leiva and Richarlison, with this promo due to end on Friday March 12.
But instead of waiting for that promo to end, EA Sports have launched the FUT Player Days promo whilst the What If promo is still ongoing. The FUT Player Days loading screen appeared within the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team game mode on Monday evening, giving FUT fans just one hour notice before the promo was due to begin.

Check out everything you need to know about the FIFA 21 FUT Player Days promo below.
FIFA 21 FUT Player Days promo explained
The FUT Player Days promo was first launched in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team, with a best of in-form players and other special cards released into packs at once, with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Eden Hazard in-forms all being released into packs, the promo also featured login rewards for FUT players.
The rewards increased the more each player had logged into the game mode, with rewards including special kits, packs and coins.
In FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, EA Sports launched the FUT Player Days promo to celebrate the start of the CONMEBOL Libertadores with a brand new team featuring over 30 players, with all 30 players given special permanently upgraded player items, who were released in packs, SBCs and Objectives.
Players like Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor and Diego Buonanotte were all added to the game with heavily upgraded player items, with the promo also featuring Flashback Ricardo Quaresma, Flashback Jerome Boateng, Player Moments Hector Bellerin and Player Moments Ever Banega.
This year, for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, FUT players are again being rewarded with free packs, with the rewards increasing based on a certain number of times players have logged into the FUT 21 game mode since launch.
To claim your free pack, log in to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team during the FUT Player Days event to receive your reward.
The reward for each tier are as follows:
- Tier 1: 1-60 days – Jumbo Premium Gold Pack
- Tier 2: 61-115 days – Prime Gold Players Pack
- Tier 3: 116-137 days – Rare Mega Pack
- Tier 4: 138-141 days – Ultimate Pack
It’s likely that as the promo continues, we could see a ‘best of’ special cards team released into packs, like in FUT 19, and it’s also likely that we’ll get special Flashback and Player Moments SBCs throughout the week.
EA Sports have confirmed that the What If Team 2 will now remain in packs until March 10 at 6pm GMT, with the FUT Player Days promo ending on Friday March 12 at 6pm GMT.
The FUT 21 Player Days promo also kicked off with a 81+ Player Pick Double Squad Building Challenge, where you can exchange a squad for 2 of 6 Rare Gold Players, rated 81 OVR or higher.
There are also four new FUT Player Days objectives, with each objective having a reward of an untradeable 75+ Rated Rare Player Pack.
Lastly, there is also a discount on certain FUT Packs, with the Premium Gold Players Packs and Mega Packs having 50% off currently.
