 FIFA 23

The FIFA 23 RTTF upgrades tracker has almost reached its final form – and the big winners are Kalvin Phillips and Nicolo Barella. Manchester City and Inter Milan reaching the Champions League final has meant that pair getting the most boosts from this FIFA 23 campaign. Below we explain how the promo works, and run down all its cards and ratings with the FIFA 23 RTTF upgrades tracker.

What are FIFA 23 RTTF cards?


FIFA 23 RTTF stands for Road To The Final. Those chosen for the campaign receive cards which upgrade based on their team’s results in the Champions League, Europa League, or Europa Conference League. Those selected don't even need to appear in these matches – it's all about wins rather than individual performances.

FIFA 23 RTTF Team 1 dropped on Friday, February 17, to replace the very popular FIFA 23 Future Stars campaign. Standout items included Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino (CF, 91), Real Madrid galactico David Alaba (CB, 89), and Dortmund whirlwind Donyell Malen (ST, 87).

Some of these items, such as Alaba and Arsenal wideman Gabriel Martinelli (LM, 90) received upgrades within the first week – and in Alaba's case there could yet be four additional ones to come.

Is there a FIFA 23 RTTF Team 2 leak?


Well, yes –  but it turned out to be incorrect. Those said to be receiving new cards include Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips, Lazio winger Felipe Anderson, and RB Leipzig wizard Emil Forsberg. However, these arrived shortly after the release of Team 1 – meaning Team 2's make-up remained a mystery. And it's one that will last forever. The rumoured kick off date of Friday, February 24 came and went without any additional players, although we have had a few new ones since – such us an SBC for 92-rated Roma striker Tammy Abraham.

How do FIFA 23 RTTF Upgrades work?


Very similarly to the FIFA 23 RTTK promo from earlier in the season. Players can earn up to four OVR bonuses dependent on their team’s European performances, with weak foot and FIFA 23 skill moves upgrades on offer too. Here’s what they need to do to trigger each boost:

  • Win 1st knockout game after FIFA 23 RTTF launch = OVR upgrade

  • Qualify for quarter-finals = OVR upgrade

  • Qualify for semi-finals = OVR upgrade & three new traits

  • Qualify for final = 5-star weak foot upgrade

  • Win final = OVR upgrade and 5-star skill moves upgrade

When do FIFA 23 RTTF upgrades happen?


Shortly after each remaining round of European competition is completed. Conference League matches occur on Thursdays, so Friday is the most likely arrival time. That would mean you can expect cards to receive their boosts on the dates below. The first four dates were correct, so expect the very last one to follow the same pattern.

  • Upgrade 1: Friday, February 24

  • Upgrade 2: Friday, March 17

  • Upgrade 3: Friday, April 21

  • Upgrade 4: Friday, May 19

  • Upgrade 5: Friday, June 12

Are there FIFA 23 RTTF SBCs and Objectives players?


The first FIFA 23 RTTF Objectives player tied in with the ongoing FIFA 23 Silver Stars challenge. It arrived on Wednesday, February 22 and is for Andras Schafer (CM, 71) of Union Berlin. To unlock him you needed to complete a trio of challenges in the Live FUT Friendly: Silver Stars match type. Sadly, these had to be done before 6pm UK time on Wednesday, February 26 or your shot at Schafer was gone for good.

FIFA 23 RTTF SBCs (Squad Building Challenges) were expected throughout the promo, but surprisingly short on supply. Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby (RM, 90) was the only notable one, and set you back around 88,000 FIFA 23 coins as of Thursday, February 23. His SBC has now expired.
