FUT Rewards via FIFA World Cup Trading System

As leaked almost two months ago, the World Cup event will also include a token exchange system during and after the competition. Thus during the competition, you will be able to accumulate tokens via in-game objectives as well as DCE.

How the FUT FIFA World Cup Trading System Works

  • The exchange event starts on November 11
  • 50 Tokens to collect + several in store
  • Tokens in objectives and DCE + 2 in the shop
  • These tokens disappear at the end of the event
  • Rewards are listed below

List of World Cup tokens:

  • 1: A Token at login on FIFA 23 (before January 4)
  • 2: A Token at level 5 of Season Progression
  • 3: A Token at level 18 of Season Progression
  • 4: A Token via the FIFA World Cup 1 Exchanges objective
  • 5: A Token via the FIFA World Cup 1 Exchanges objective
  • 6: A Token via the FIFA World Cup 1 Exchanges objective
  • 14: Eight Tokens via FIFA World Cup Week 1 Exchanges objective
  • 18: Four Tokens via Swap Objective FIFA World Cup Week 2
  • 26: Eight Tokens via FIFA World Cup Week 2 Exchanges objective
  • 30: Four Tokens via Swap Objective FIFA World Cup Week 3
  • 31: A Token in the Boutique Pack
  • 32: A Token in the Boutique Pack
  • 40: Eight Tokens via FIFA World Cup Week 2 Exchanges objective
  • 44: Four Tokens via Swap Objective FIFA World Cup Week 4
  • 52: Eight Tokens via FIFA World Cup Week 2 Exchanges objective
  • 53: A Token in the Boutique Pack
  • 54: A Token in the Boutique Pack

List of World Cup token exchange rewards

  • An 82+ x20 Pack for 3 Tokens
  • An 84+ x20 Pack for 10 Tokens
  • Three Packs 84+ x20 for 20 Tokens
  • One Player Choice 1 of 5 Path to Glory for 20 Tokens
  • One Player Pick 1 of 4 FUT World Cup Heroes for 25 Tokens
  • One Player Choice 1 of 3 World Cup Icon for 35 Tokens
  • Kramaric, Hoffenheim for 5 Tokens
  • Guardado, Betis Seville against 5 Tokens
  • Kostic, Juventus for 6 Tokens
  • Christensen, FC Barcelona against 8 Tokens
  • Correa, Inter Milan against 8 Tokens
  • Pereira, PSG for 8 Tokens
  • Aké, Man City against 8 Tokens
  • Brandt, Borussia against 8 Tokens
  • Morata, Atlético Madrid against 8 Jetons
  • Mount, Chelsea for 10 Tokens
  • Fabinho, Liverpool against 15 Tokens
  • Hazard, Real Madrid for 15 Tokens
  • Coman, Bayern Munich for 15 Tokens
  • Cafu World Cup Icon for 30 Tokens
  • Vieira World Cup Icon for 40 Tokens

We generally recommend taking 84+ x20 packs with a view to completing DCEs as well as directly choosing players for Tokens. Player choice packs are generally not very good and getting a semi-fodder card for 20 or 25 chips is pretty bad compared to the potential of 60 84+ cards.

List of special cards for the World Cup

EA will offer several styles of special cards throughout the competition. First, Marvel FUT Heroes cards will replace certain FUT Heroes during the competition period (see list below). In addition, temporary cards will be usable by players but removed at the end of the competition. In addition, special versions, sometimes upgradable, will be available in packs every week. Finally, a few players should be available through DCE and objectives.
