After the OTW event, it’s time to follow the journey through the Group Stages of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and UEFA Europa Conference League with the FIFA 23 Road to the Knockouts.
Each Road to the Knockouts (RTTK) player item has the potential for two further upgrades based on how their team performs throughout the remainder of the Group Stages. An RTTK item will receive a “wins upgrade” if their club gets two victories from their remaining Group Stage games and a “qualification upgrade” if their team qualifies for the Knockout Stages of their current competition.
FUT 23 Road to the Knockouts Event
The race is on for European glory. The final three games of the Group Stages will decide who can still dream of a UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, or UEFA Conference League title—and which Road to the Knockout player items will take your Ultimate Team to the next level.
Each RTTK item has the potential for two dynamic upgrades—one if their team wins at least two of their remaining Group Stage games and one if their team qualifies for the Knockout Stages of their respective UEFA competition.
So keep an eye on Europe because what happens in each UEFA competition will decide just how good each RTTK player will become in Ultimate Team.
Road to the Knockouts items are special upgraded Live Items in FUT 23 that have the potential to earn two further dynamic upgrades throughout the Group Stage of each tournament:
If their team qualifies for the knockout stages of their current competition.
If their club earns two wins from their three remaining Group Stage matches.
Plus, enjoy a series of Road to the Knockouts Squad Building Challenges and Objectives throughout the campaign.
Let’s see the answers to the most common questions about the FUT 23 Road to the Knockouts Event and the special player items.
Q: How do RTTK players earn upgrades?
A: In addition to an initial upgrade for every player selected in Road to the Knockouts, players can earn two additional upgrades during the Group Stages. Firstly, if their team qualifies for the knockout stages of their current competition (teams who qualify for the UEFA Europa League from the UEFA Champions League are not eligible for this upgrade); secondly, if their club wins two out of their three remaining group stage matches in either of the three tournaments.
Q: Does a player need to play for their club to earn upgrades?
A: No, Road to the Knockouts players do not need to have played for their team to receive any upgrade they are eligible for.
Q: What happens if a player transfers or stops playing for a club in the tournament?
A: If a player is no longer registered for the club they represent at the start of the Road to the Knockouts campaign, they will not be eligible for additional upgrades.
Q: What happens if a player’s club is knocked out of either of the tournaments?
A: If a player’s club is knocked out of any tournaments, they will not be eligible for the qualification upgrade. This includes players who qualify for the UEFA Europa League by finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group.
Q: How long will the attribute boost be applied to a player item when an upgrade is earned?
A: Any Road to the Knockouts item upgrades can take up to a few days to update in-game.
Q: Will there be additional upgrades in the Knockout Stages?
A: Road to the Knockouts players are only eligible for upgrades during the Group Stages. However, RTTK is just the start of our celebrations of the UEFA competitions, with more to come in the Knockout Stages of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and UEFA Europa Conference League.
