It seems that EA Sports are getting more inventive with the promotional offers at key events within the year. FIFA 17 Halloween promotions in FUT 17 will be as good as ever! Although last years ‘Monster’s Ball’ tournament disappointingly had no Halloween themed entry requirements, it was an improvement from previous years. We also saw daily gifts from October 30th – November 7th, along with several pack offers. Remember Halloween falls on October 31st!
FIFA 17 Halloween Offers
It’s been confirmed that FIFA 17 Halloween offers will run from October 21st until November 7th, 2016.
We’ll announce all FIFA 17 Halloween promotions below and offers as they are announced.
FIFA 17 Ultimate Scream Program
The FIFA 17 Ultimate Scream program will include a variety of promotions lasting for more than 2 weeks!
From October 21st to October 28th, 23 Ultimate Scream players will be available in FIFA 17 packs with upgraded ratings as unique items. That’s not all though, during the Halloween period (October 28th until November 1st) these players come alive and get further ratings boosts! The boosts are temporary and on November 1st at 10am PDT the boost ends and their ratings revert back to match their initial release upgrade.

You’ll see a variety of FIFA 17 pack offers in the store throughout the FIFA 17 Ultimate Scream Halloween Promotion!
How long are the FIFA 17 Ultimate Scream Team players in packs?
The 23 man Ultimate Scream Team squad will be available in packs with initial upgraded ratings from October 21st 10am PDT until October 28th 10am PDT.
What is meant by the Temporary Boost?
All 23 Ultimate Scream players will automatically receive temporary stat boosts from October 28th until November 1st, 10am PDT. For example, Bellerin will be released as an 80-rated special player for the first week and the item will be temporarily boosted to 90 for that three day halloween period! When the promotion ends it will go back down to 80! The same format applies to all 23 players.
Are Ultimate Scream Players tradeable?
Yes! You can make coins and trade your Ultimate Scream players from October 21st onwards! Be aware that when they receive a temporary boost they may see inflated prices on the Transfer Market!
Can I use Ultimate Scream players in FUT Champions and the Weekend League?
Yes. You can use Ultimate Scream players in FUT Champions and the Weekend League. Even when they receive their temporary boost you can still use them!
What happens to Ultimate Scream items after Halloween?
They will return back to their initial released ratings! Let’s look at Payet’s Ultimate Scream item. He is an 87 OVR, during Halloween weekend he will get a temporary boost to 95 OVR. When the weekend ends, he permanently goes back to his Ultimate Scream rating of 87.
How were the Ultimate Scream Team Players chosen?
The Ultimate Scream Team players have been chosen by EA based on exceptional real world performances, records and FUT attributes.
Will there be any offers for Guy Fawkes night (Bonfire / Fireworks night)?
Looking at previous years, this is unlikely. If we do see any offers we’ll release another updated guide.
Will there be any FIFA 17 Ultimate Team promotions before Halloween?
Yes, you will likely see many promotions, but not as interesting as those for Halloween. You should also see many featured tournaments (especially after the small quantity last year), daily gifts and a variety of happy hour pack offers. Halloween will likely be the first themed promotion of the year.
Can I make FUT coins during FIFA 17 Halloween?
If we see specific requirements for a tournament then yes you can! FIFA 17 Tournaments that have specific requirements cause an increase in demand for those players. Often, featured tournaments are not announced, or announced just as they are starting, so for those of you that are very sharp, you can make a lot of FIFA 17 coins! Other scenarios where you can make coins include any that cause player hype.
