FIFA Ultimate Team was first introduced in FIFA 09 on March 19th, 2009. Since the release, it has been the most successful game mode in EA Sports FIFA’s history. To celebrate it’s anniversary and the birth date of the game mode, EA release exciting promotions into FUT! During the FIFA 17 FUT Birthday celebrations we may see free packs, promotional packs, a new featured tournament, new player cards and potentially more exciting offers! After last year, it seems that FUT’s Birthday is becoming the most exciting promotion of the year in terms of offers! Find out all the 8th FUT Birthday offers in our updated guide below!
Although FUT is turning eight (8) years old, EA first introduced the FUT Birthday promotion in FIFA 14. EA released the promotion for the 6th FUT birthday from March 23-29 and the 7th anniversary from March 21-28. This was to cater for the St. Patrick’s Day promotion that was directly prior. For the FIFA 17 FUT Birthday promotion, we’re expecting the promotional week to arrive at March 21-28th, 2017. Expect big things this year!

There’s historically been no major market crash as such, player prices can typically trend 5-10% lower over the St. Patrick’s Day and FUT Birthday promotions.
Why do EA release the FUT Birthday promotion after March 19th?
This is to cater for the St. Patrick’s Day promotional period which runs directly before FIFA Ultimate Team’s anniversary. St. Patrick’s Day falls on March 17th, which is two days prior to FUT’s birthday. Either EA can release the St. Patrick’s Day promotions earlier, or they can release the FUT Birthday promotions later. Alternatively they can reduce the duration of the promotion/s, but this would not be logical.
Will FUT’s birthday be celebrated every year?
It appears so. The biggest game mode in EA Sports FIFA’s history deserves big celebrations and EA seem to be getting in on this trend every year. We can only guess at how huge the 10th birthday promotion will be.
Why did EA release position changes cards during FUT’s 7th Birthday?
With International players playing well in a different position to their day 1 card (club position), and many FUT fans hoping for new releases, EA celebrated their game modes anniversary in the most hyped way. Positional change cards were released, combined with pack offers, which made fans of FUT very happy!
