FIFA 18: The best Ultimate Team promotion of the year kicks off THIS WEEK

Get ready for some insane cards

FIFA 18 may be coming to the end of its lifespan but its saved the best promotion until last.

Futties kick off next month and see a select number of players awarded special award in-form cards chosen by the community of FIFA players.


FIFA 19 Standard and Champions Editions are available to pre-order from GAME and Amazon


The players with the most amount of votes in a category will be awarded a special FUT card with upgraded stats.

The promotion lasts six weeks and will see 30 players get a pink card across 10 categories.

So, what are the categories?

They haven’t been announced yet, but here’s what we saw last year.

    • Brick Wall
    • Class is Permanent
    • Engine Room
    • Head First
    • Most Improved
    • One Club Man
    • Pot Shots
    • Skillers Delight
    • Get Stuck In
    • The Maestro
    • Two Footed

How can I get my hands on a pink card?

If last year was anything to go by, you’re first going to have to complete a FUTTIES Nomination SBC.

By doing this, you will get a pink FUTTIES Nominee item with base stats of the player you voted for.

The player with the most completed Nomination SBCs will win each category.

Cristiano Ronaldo will no doubt be among the Futties nominations

The FUTTIES Winner item will then be made available with boosted stats. It’ll feature a gold trim to signify their accomplishment in a separate Winner SBC.

You then need to complete this to get the card.

The cards are untradeable, so you won’t be able to buy them from the market.

How much of a boost will players get?

Futties cards are usually boosted by ‘one or two points’, compared with their last TOTW/MOTM/iMOTM/Hero cards.

Who was awarded Futties cards last year?

Here is the list of past winners:

Favourite GK: Jack Butland (Stoke City)
Favourite CB: Chris Smalling (Manchester United)
Favourite RB: Serge Aurier (Paris Saint-Germain)
Favourite LB: Luke Shaw (Manchester United)
Favourite RM: Leroy Sané (Manchester City)
Favourite LM: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
Favourite CM: Moussa Dembélé (Tottenham Hotspur)
Favourite ST: Ahmed Musa (Leicester City)
Favourite Swap Position: Alessandro Florenzi (AS Roma)

So when does it kick off?

Later than last year – around July 18.

Is anything going to happen to the market?

FUTTIES are untradeable so they won’t affect the market.
