Power your Ultimate Team with real-world performances during FUT 23 Fantasy. Each special Player Item is eligible for upgrades based on both team and individual achievements on the pitch during select matches in their domestic run-in. Every detail counts—from starts and clean sheets to goals and assists—boosting their rating each time they hit specific statistical milestones.
There will be two teams of Fantasy FUT Player Items, including the debut of Fantasy FUT Heroes that will be able to upgrade based on a former club’s results in real-world matches. All upgrades will be based on the six domestic league matches after both teams have been released, starting on March 17th.

Let’s see the answers to the most common questions about the FUT 23 Fantasy event and special player items.
Which games are the upgrades based on?
All fantasy FUT upgrades will be based solely on a club’s next six domestic league matches starting march 17th. Both individual and team contributions will no longer be tracked after the club’s next six domestic league matches.
When will items be upgraded in-game?
Fantasy FUT player items will upgrade weekly based on any upgrades earned after each matchday.
How do the fantasy FUT items work?
Fantasy FUT items have the chance to earn up to +4 OVR upgrades based on individual and team contributions in the club’s next six domestic league matches starting march 17th.
If the player makes three appearances, they will receive a +1 OVR upgrade
For attackers and midfielders, if the player achieves 2 goals/assists they will receive a +1 OVR upgrade
For defenders and GKs, if the player keeps 2 clean sheets they will receive a +1 OVR upgrade
If their current club wins one game they will receive a +1 OVR upgrade
If their current club avoids defeat in the next six games, they will receive a +1 OVR upgrade and 3 new traits
How do the fantasy FUT hero items work?
Fantasy FUT hero items have the chance to earn up to +2 OVR upgrades based on the form of one specific associated former club in the next six domestic league matches starting march 17th:
Associated former club wins one game from the six, they’ll receive a +1 OVR upgrade
Associated former club avoids defeat in all six, they’ll receive a +1 OVR upgrade and three new traits.
You can find the associated club for each fantasy FUT hero in the additional information tab in-game.
Do players have to play in order to earn upgrades for their fantasy FUT player items?
There are both team-based and individual-based upgrades in fantasy FUT. A player item is eligible for the ‘win’ and ‘avoid defeat’ upgrades regardless of whether or not they feature in the six matches.
They are only eligible, however, for the ‘appearances’ and ‘goals/assists/clean sheet’ upgrades if they achieve those scenarios individually in their club’s next six games.
Can fantasy FUT players earn the position-specific upgrade without earning the other potential upgrades?
Yes, each of the upgrade scenarios can be achieved independently.
Position-specific upgrades depend on the primary launch position of the fantasy FUT item only.
What counts as a clean sheet?
A clean sheet is awarded to a defender or goalkeeper for not conceding a goal whilst on the pitch and playing at least 60 minutes. If a player is substituted off when a goal is conceded they will still fulfill the clean sheet upgrade scenario, provided that they were substituted off before the goal was scored and they played at least 60 minutes during the match.
What happens if an attacker/midfielder scores one and assists one?
The “two goals or assists” upgrade is an aggregate tally, meaning a player item qualifies for the +1 OVR upgrade if they score two, assist two, or get one of each.
What traits will be given to player items whose teams don’t lose any of their six domestic league matches?
The three select traits will depend on the player’s position and existing traits.
