Road to the Knockouts is the expansion from FIFA 22 to the Road to the Finals cards from previous FUT years. Here’s everything we know so far about this year’s Europe promotion, from the players in Team 1 to the upgrade structure and prizes.
Ultimate Team’s specialty cards are one of the key features that keep the mode exciting during the long season.

The next FIFA 22 promotion is Road to the Knockouts, based on the top competitions in European football.
Here is everything you need to know.

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts start date
RTTK started on Friday October 15, 2021, with team 1 ends up in packs 10 AM PT / 1:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. BST.
Much to the surprise of many fans, EA began teasing its next promotion almost immediately after the previous one ended.
We expect Team 2 to be released on Friday, October 22, 2021, at the same time as the previous week.
It is unclear at the moment how long the event will last, as Rulebreakers was originally due to be released on October 22nd. We will update this page as more details become available.
What is FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts?
Based on the information released so far, RTTK appears to be an addition to the usual Road to the Finals promotion.
The rating of these cards is increased based on the performance of the player team in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, Europa League or Europa Conference League.
Unlike Team of the Week, these cards are not performance-based. Even if the player does not play on the map, they will still be upgraded if their team makes it.
EA has already confirmed that RTTK cards will only be live for the group stage, and the Road to the Finals card will be released later in the year and will be completely segregated.
How do Road to the Knockouts upgrades work?
Every RTTK player gets an initial boost to their base card, be it a plus in the case of Andrew Robertson or an upgrade from four to Leroy Sane.
You will then have the option to receive two future boosts depending on how your team fares in the group stage of their European competition.
You will be promoted if your club:
- Qualified for the knockout phase
- Wins three of the last four group stage games
If a player qualifies for the knockout phase of the Europa League by placing third in his Champions League group, he is not entitled to an upgrade.
EA hasn’t yet announced how big the upgrades will be, but based on previous years, fans can look forward to an increased overall rating of one or two for each.
FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts Team 2 predictions
The official second team of RTTK players has yet to be announced, but there are plenty of options considering the sheer number of players competing in the three tournaments.
Team 1 already has some big names, but some clubs are not yet represented in the promotion.
We’re waiting for the second reveal, so here are our best predictions of who might be part of the second team:
- Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund)
- Timo Werner (Chelsea)
- Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona)
- Yuri Tielemens (Leicester City)
- Gelson Martins (Monaco)
- Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen)
- Jack Grealish (Manchester City)
- Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma)
