The race for European glory is on!
EA Sports just dropped their second promo in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team focusing on the UEFA club competitions. Similar to last year’s promo, we will see a new collection of themed dynamic player items, squad building challenges and objectives. So let’s dive into details, shall we?
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 already boosted dynamic player items released via this campaign have the potential to get two further upgrades. One if their team wins at least two of their remaining Group Stage games and one if their team qualifies for the Knockout Stages of their respective UEFA competition.
