The Ultimate TOTS squad is seeing out the Team of the Season campaign in style, with another massive event coming next in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team in the form of Shapeshifters!

This isn't the first time Shapeshifters has been seen, coming in FUT 20 and FUT 22, so we know what to expect, although there should still be some surprises in store.

Stay up to date with all the latest news, leaks and rumours right here as we count down to the Shapeshifters Team 1 release in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

The final loading screen before the Shapeshifters promo is released has revealed some more details of the cards coming in the next promo!

The Harry Maguire dream is dead for now, with the Portuguese Manchester United player leaked to be Bruno Fernandes.

Initially shown as a player from Lyon, the club has now been changed to Rennes, with Karl Toko Ekambi likely to be the Cameroonian representative, although it could also be Christopher Wooh.

Shapeshifters Premium chemistry has also been revealed to work exactly like FUT Heroes, as many had expected!

Release Date & Time

The Shapeshifters Team 1 squad will be released on Friday, 16 June, replacing the Ultimate TOTS, TOTS Award Winners, and Rest of the World TOTS items in packs immediately.

As usual, the cards will hit packs at 1pm ET / 6pm BST on the day of release.

The cards will stay in packs for one week from their release, rotating out on Friday, 23 June, when Team 2 will take over.

Shapeshifters Leaks

The player leaks for the Shapeshifters squad in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team are coming in fast now, with Dayot Upamecano and Eden Hazard a couple of players on the way!

Although we don't know what position they will be assigned, their names are on the list.

The loading screen officially revealed that Shapeshifters Icons will be part of the promo, with data mining account Fut Scoreboard confirming that the 'Alternate Reality Icon' rarity has been updated to 'Shapeshifters Icon' in the code.

We also have the Shapeshifters Premium card design on the loading screen, which will work like FUTTIES Premium cards from FUT 22.

Shapeshifters Premium players will always be on full chemistry if playing in the correct position and will provide two league chemistry points, just as FUT Heroes do in FUT 23.


There aren't any restrictions on who could gain a Shapeshifters card, so all names are on the table!

Given Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo headlined Team 1 and Team 2 last year with 99 OVR cards, it wouldn't surprise us to see the same again.

Fan favourites like Adama Traore and Youcef Atal are also possibilities, then there are all the Icons and FUT Heroes who could be involved!
