Update (31.03.2023: Check this article for Team 2's release.

Update (28.03.2023): AS Monaco's Axel Disasi (87 OVR) is the newest FUT Birthday player available via SBC.

Update (27.03.2023): Rivaldo (93 OVR) is now available via SBC and the FUT Birthday Team 1 mini-release brought the Twin versions of Koke (88 OVR), Oleksandr Zinchenko (90 OVR), and Darwin Núñez (89 OVR) into the game. Alex Iwobi (89 OVR) is another SBC reward.

Original (24.03.2023): FIFA 23 FUT Birthday Team 1 is finally out and available through FUT packs. The FUT Birthday Token Swaps have already been going for a while, but the wait for Team 1’s release was still a long one despite that. At least we had a pretty substantial amount of leaks to keep us company, right?

Team 1 of FUT Birthday once again proves that the FIFA 23 leaker community is well-informed about what’s going on behind the scenes, and we expect the players mentioned in leaks but not included in Team 1’s release to follow during the next couple of days in the form of mini-releases. These are often scheduled for the Sunday after the promo, meaning you can expect the next batch of cards to arrive on March 26, 2023. These are likely going to be the Twin cards from the leaks.

First things first, though: Here are all FIFA 23 FUT Birthday Team 1 players and Icons available in packs right now.
