What’s the Road to the Final (RTTF) Promo in FIFA 23?

FIFA 23’s Road to the Final returns to the game now that all of Europe’s major club cup competitions are back. Last week saw the first leg of knockout action of the Champions League, Europa League, and the Europa Conference League Round of 16.

This week will bring forth the second week of the Champions League Round of 16 first-leg games and the second leg of the other two cup competitions. Throughout the RTTF promotion, there will be four releases, two of which happened over the weekend after Friday, February 17.
