The FUTTIES series runs six weeks, until August 18th, with EA Sports making available a range of different categories of cards and packs available to their FUT fans.

Two icons who hung up their boots at the end of the 2016-17 season, Kuyt and Totti, are the first two icons of six who have received huge boosts as a fitting send-off by the video game franchise. 

The first lot of EOAE cards can be packed until July 14.

Players can also currently vote for their favourite centre-back from a choice of Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Samuel Umtiti by completing a squad building challenge of their choice.

The winner of the vote will receive a special boosted version of their card which will also be made available to FUT players through an additional squad building challenge.

Finally, players whose chemistry largely drevolved around participation in the Premier League will be happy to find out that Alexandre Lacazette, Bernardo Silva, and Mohamed Salah are now available as Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool player's respectively. 

Corentin Colisso's Bayern Munich card is also available in packs.
