FIFA 22: When will Headliners Team 2 be released in Ultimate Team?


The Headliners content is coming thick and fast now in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team!

With Team 1 having dropped last week, find out exactly when Team 2 will be released in FUT 22 right here.

Release Date

Now that we've seen the Headliners squad labelled as 'Team 1', we know that Team 2 is on the way soon!

We haven't seen any leaks just yet, but we can expect the likes on Vinicius Jr and Mohamed Salah to be included.

EA will likely release the Headliners Team 2 squad on Friday, 7 January 2022.

The new squad will be released at approximately 1pm ET / 6pm GMT, replacing the Team 1 cards in packs immediately.

How do Headliners upgrades work?

Headliners are special dynamic items that are permanently upgraded and have the potential for further upgrades based upon individual and team performances in the remainder of the 2021/22 season.

At the launch of Headliners, each Headliners player item is released with an initial permanent upgrade.

This upgrade will make the player's OVR higher than any qualifying performance-based item (Team of the Week or Man of the Match), or their base item if they haven’t received a qualifying upgrade.

For example, Kylian Mbappe received a 93 OVR Headliners card which is one overall point higher than his 92 OVR in-form version.

Each time a Headliner receives a performance-based item, their Headliners item will also receive an upgrade.

In addition, FUT 22 Headliners will also receive an additional one-time permanent upgrade if their club achieves four back to back wins during the remainder of the domestic league season.

It is important to note that Headliner items will not be upgraded based on Player of the Month, and other promos like Team of the Year, Team of the Season or other FUT Campaigns.
