FIFA 18: This is what EA has planned for this month’s FUTmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year for FIFA fans

FUTmas is coming!

This month, EA will flood FIFA 18 with lightning rounds, new pack offers, free packs, increased chances of finding in-form players and loads more bonuses.

WIN A TRIP TO EL CLASICO Play Dream Team Weekender to win a trip of a lifetime and be in with a chance to bag £10k


We’d expect FUTmas to begin with unlimited Jumbo Premium Gold (15k) Packs in the FUT store for the duration of the promotion.

Each day there will be at least one new offer, and around Christmas Eve (December 24th) we could see free untradeable packs to all users.


Last year’s FUTmas kit was something special

On Christmas Day (December 25th) we could see multiple offers, as well as another free pack.

Finally, lightning rounds could become available at the start of every hour throughout Boxing Day (December 26th) – so there’s plenty to get excited about.

Fan website UpFIFACoins has pulled together what they think will be included this year:

FIFA 18 FUTmas Offers

A new Promo Pack or Lightning Round every day

New Squad Building Challenges

Themed Kit

Daily Gifts

FUTMas Players Cards

Potential FIFA 18 FUTmas SBC rewards

OTW Pack

PTG Pack

Scream Pack

81+ TOTW Pack

If you’re a serious FIFA market trader, a word of warning. Investing during the FUTmas period can be tough.

Historically, there is a lot of uncertainty at this time, especially as the FIFA 18 Team of The Year is set to be unveiled in January.

Follow these rules of thumb to make some serious money.

Rule 1

Always target the cheapest version of each card and never pay over the odds.

Rule 2

Target Team of the Week cards from big nations/leagues, especially discard IF’s with ratings of at least 80 – such as Stefan De Vrij and Javier Pastore.

High-rated players, with scores between 82 – 84, are a great investment, too. Some of their prices will fall after Squad Battle and Weekend League rewards.

Rule 3

Target Scream Cards from big nations and leagues – wait for their prices to fall after getting boosted before investing.

Good luck!
