Saint Patrick’s day is fast approaching, which can only mean one thing – a new FIFA 18 promotion.
So, what’s going to happen?
Last year a number Republic of Ireland players were handed a new green card design – boasting exactly the same stats.
These were available in both packs and via SBCs, which kicked off around St Patrick’s Day (March 17).
The SBCs gave players the chance to bag a large amount of coins – centered around the ‘luck of the Irish’ concept.
There were different tiers – the higher the tier, the larger the potential prize pot.
The challenges themselves required Republic of Ireland players and/or one of the special green Irish player cards.
So, how can I prepare?
Right now, the hype has already building – meaning it’ll be tough to pick up Republic of Ireland players for fewer than 1,000 coins. However, you still may get lucky.
At peak time, people will pay up to six times the amount to bag an Irish player.
So if you have lots on your books and aren’t too fussed about the SBCs, it could be a great time to sell – prices will likely fall immediately after the event.
Northern Ireland also celebrates the event – and if it these come up as a requirement, it’s game on.
They cost very little and could well be a good investment if you’re struggling to find any RoI stars.
