FIFA 22 Next Generation Promo: Everything we know so far

A brand new FIFA 22 promo has been leaked by the official Ligue 1 Twitter Account. If you play FIFA 22 Ultimate Team before January 14, you have a chance of receiving a “next generation” Kylian Mbappe!

It appears that the official Ligue 1 account has dropped the ball – on Thursday the 18th of November, they posted that 6 new promo cards (never seen in FIFA 21) will be coming to the game in January 2022. The tweet was deleted soon after, and it’s unknown if this was an innocent mistake or a clever marketing ploy to get us all excited.

Who could you pack?

The full list of players available in the promo is: 

  • 86 Kylian Mbappe: Paris Saint Germain
  • 85 Phil Foden: Manchester City
  • 81 Jude Bellingham: Borussia Dortmund
  • 85 Theo Hernandez: AC Milan
  • 83 Christian Pulisic: Chelsea
  • 81 Eduardo Camavinga: Real Madrid

Each of these players fits perfectly into the “next generation” promo as they’re widely touted to be the players battling for the Ballon d’Or in the future. And because these players are in with a chance of becoming some of the best talent in world football, there’s also the possibility that these promo cards may receive upgrades too!

The cards in detail

The biggest name on the list is obviously the Frenchman Kylian Mbappe. But EA Sports have given him a massive downgrade from his standard 91 striker card; Mbappe’s Future Generation card is an 86 LW and his stats have dropped significantly too. With that said, this card will still be a welcome addition to any team and could still do a job in FUT Champions. Check it out:

  • 97 to 90 pace
  • 92 to 84 dribbling
  • 88 to 78 shooting
  • 80 to 74 passing
  • 77 to 68 physical
  • 36 to 31 defending

In comparison, Eduardo Camavinga received the biggest boost in rating and stats. He moved from a 78 overall to an 81: 

  • 72 to 75 pace
  • 80 to 83 dribbling
  • 65 to 68 shooting 
  • 76 to 80 passing
  • 77 to 81 physical
  • 75 to 78 defending

Next up is Jude Bellingham who received the second biggest upgrade. He moved from 79 to 81:

  • 75 to 77 pace
  • 80 to 82 dribbling 
  • 69 to 71 shooting 
  • 73 to 76 passing
  • 77 to 79 physical
  • 75 to 78 defending

The last three players involved in the promo only increased their overalls by +1, let’s take a look.

Phil Foden increased from an 84 to an 85:

  • 84 to 85 pace
  • 87 to 88 dribbling
  • 78 to 80 shooting
  • 80 to 82 passing
  • 57 to 58 physical
  • 56 to 57 defending

Theo Hernandez also received a +1 upgrade to 85 rated:

  • 93 to 94 pace
  • 81 to 83 dribbling
  • 71 to 72 shooting
  • 76 to 78 passing
  • 82 to 83 physical
  • 77 to 78 defending

Finally, Christian Pulisic received a +1 overall to bring him to a silky 83:

  • 89 to 90 pace
  • 86 to 87 dribbling
  • 70 to 72 shooting
  • 73 to 75 passing
  • 59 to 60 physical
  • 37 to 38 defending

The final summary 

A leak from Ligue 1’s official Twitter says you’ll be guaranteed to receive one of six FIFA 22 Next Generation cards if you play before the 14th of January 2022.
