Each season, FIFA Ultimate Team is filled with all kinds of promotions to keep the game mode fresh and exciting. These promos feature boosted cards to improve your squad, and they are available for unlocking in multiple ways.

So far in FUT 22, we've seen TOTGS, FUT Versus, and Winter Wildcards, to name a few. The next event is here as the Headliners team just went live in Ultimate Team packs.

Here's how the new upgraded cards work, as well as who made the squad for FIFA 22 Headliners Team 1.

The first batch of Headliners cards just went live in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team on Friday, 31st December at 6 pm GMT. These cards produce some of the highest ratings in Ultimate Team and are live cards, meaning they continue to upgrade throughout the season.

At the launch of Headliners, each player is released with an initial upgrade, higher than any other card rating for that respective player. Each time a Headliner receives a performance-based item (special card), their Headliners card will also receive an upgrade.

FUT 22 Headliners will also receive an additional one-time permanent upgrade if their club achieves four consecutive wins during the remainder of the domestic league season. 

Here's who made the squad for the FIFA 22 Headliners Team 1.
