FIFA 20 players are getting ready for their annual Christmas celebration as EA Sports looks to release the games ever popular Futmas event.
For anyone who can't remember, the Futmas event is a series of SBCs throughout the winter period which focus on counting down player shirt numbers from 30 to 1, all the way up to December 24.
So for instance, last year, three new player SBCs released every single day. That meant 33 player SBCs released over 11 days!
Right, got it?
As per usual these Futmas cards will also have a slight boost in stats, as per every other big FIFA Ultimate Team event.
We could also see the release of some discount promo packs, which are great for anyone with money to burn on new FUT cards.
Equally, we'll more than likely see a new Winter themed kit released as well.
EA Sports also looks to have confirmed a release date and start time for the event, with a new loading screen appearing in the game.

From the looks of the loading screen the FIFA 20 FUTMAS event will begin Friday December 13 with a start time of 6pm UK time.
This makes sense given previous event start times with the FIFA 17 Futmas event started on Friday 16 Dec 2016 at 10am PDT (6PM BST). Likewise, the FIFA 18 Futmas event started Saturday 16 Dec 2017 also at 10am PDT (6PM BST).
And the FIFA 19 Futmas event began on Friday 14th Dec also at 6pm.
So it stands to reason the event will begin tomorrow, Friday December 13th at 6pm GMT as well.
The FIFA 20 Futmas loading screen has also given a hint at some of the potential new FUT cards we could see released too.
Whilst the main features of the loading screen are fairly festive with snow, a sleigh and several Christmas trees, there are also clues which tease some of the player SBC's we could see.
This year the EA SPORTS FIFA Team of the Year (TOTY) will be decided with the first fan driven vote.
