Latest - Team 2 now live

Road to the Knockouts Team 2 is now out, with a few big hitters included that will definitely become meta cards.


Two German players, Chelsea striker Timo Werner or Dortmund's captain, Marco Reus, made the cut, with both fitting nicely into the current meta teams.

La Liga has seen some love, with Frenkie de Jong and Jesus Navas gaining upgrades which the league was crying out for.

Release Date

The all-new Road to the Knockouts event began on Friday, 15 October, although we are still unsure exactly how long the event will run for in Ultimate Team.

TICK TOCK - Time is ticking away until the new event

A two-week event would line up perfectly for Ultimate Scream (or whatever EA will call their Halloween promo this year) to arrive on Friday, 29 October.


Road to the Knockouts upgrades explained

Not sure how the new RTTK cards work? Don't worry, we have you covered.

Road to the Knockouts items are special upgraded Live Items in FUT 22 that have the potential to earn two further dynamic upgrades throughout the Group Stage of each tournament:

TWO TIME - There are two opportunities for RTTK cards to be boosted
  1. If their team qualifies for the knockout stages of their current competition.
  2. If their club earns three wins from their four remaining Group Stage matches.

Not quite the same as the Road to the Final cards we have seen in the past, these cards are limited to a maximum of just two upgrades.

SBC & Objectives

So far we have had three Road to the Knockouts SBCs released, and two Objectives players.

Dutch centre-back Matthijs de Ligt (OVR 87) was the first, and he was followed by France and Real Betis playmaker Nabil Fekir (OVR 86).

While these SBC players are good cards themselves, the way the FUT market is right now they just are not offering value for money.

Another French midfielder, Benjamin Andre (OVR 83), was released as an Objectives player and can be unlocked by completing challenges in the Live FUT Friendly: Group Stage Glory.

Team 2 saw Bernardo Silva (OVR 88) receive an SBC, with Max Kruse (OVR 84) being available via Objectives.
