EA added a 98-rated End of an Era version of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team on July 3. This card is given to players as a reward for completing a themed squad-building challenge (SBC).

End of an Era cards pay homage to players who are leaving their current club or are about to retire. The devs offer an upgraded version in FIFA 22 to celebrate their careers. Bale left Real Madrid this year to play for Los Angeles FC after nine years with the Spanish club.

Comparing this End of an Era card to Bale’s original 82-rated gold card, players will notice that EA increased his Physical (+26), Pace (+17), Dribbling (+17), Defending (+10), Passing (+15), and Shooting (+14).

The upgrade gives Bale extremely high skills, such as his 99-rated Pace, 98-rated Shooting, 97-rated Passing and Dribbling, and 96-rated Physical. Bale’s only low-rated skill is his 70-rated Defending.

You can further improve his Passing (+2) and Dribbling (+2) skills by applying the engine chemistry style. Doing so will maximize more than five stats, such as his Vision, Agility, Short Passing, and Dribbling.
