FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Road To The Knockouts Announced

The next major promo of the season after OTW is now live in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

The Road To The Knockouts promo was confirmed by EA Sports earlier this week thanks to the loading screens in FUT revealing the first special FUT player cards from the Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League.


What is ‘Road To The Knockouts’?

Road To The Knockouts (RTTK) is a FUT promo focusing on the group stages of the three UEFA club competitions, Champions League (UCL), Europa League (UEL), and Conference League (UECL).

The special player items released via this promo will have the opportunity to get two further upgrades! If their club advances to the next stage of the competition they currently play and if their club earns three wins from their four remaining Group Stage matches.

One important fact to remember is that if a RTTK player’s team qualify for the UEFA Europa League from the UEFA Champions League, they are not eligible for the Knockout Stage upgrade. Also the RTTK player doesn’t have to compete in order to earn the upgrades as long as their club fulfill the upgrade requirements.

All RTTK players will be released with boosted ratings. All future upgrades will take up to a few days to update in-game.
