The FIFA 17 Lunar New Year promotion, otherwise known as FUT Chinese New Year offers is typically a week long and will introduce plenty of exciting offers into FUT 17, including squad building challenges. Each year is related to an animal sign and 2017 is the year of the Rooster. You’ll find exactly which offers are available in our updated FIFA 17 Lunar New Year guide below.
Lunar New Year 2017 falls on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 so we can assume EA will release their annual promotions around this date (January 27 until February 2, 2017). The trend seems to be that promotions have got bigger and better from FIFA 14 to FIFA 16, so this bodes well for FIFA 17 Ultimate Team.
FIFA 17 Lunar New Year
We’ll update all new information on the FIFA 17 Lunar New Year promotion and offers below.
To be confirmed.
One thing worth noting – This year is the year of the Rooster, Tottenham have a Cockerel / Rooster on their badge, it’s a possibility that the Lunar New Year Squad Building Challenges may cater for Spurs players!
FIFA 16 Offers
FIFA 16 Lunar New Year was the year of the Monkey. Offers were released every 8 hours from February 1st – 8th, 2016.
- New ‘Lucky Number 8’ Online Tournament. Requirements: Exactly 88 chemistry, 8 players from the same league. 8,888 coins online win reward.
- A variety of offline tournaments with max win rewards of 5k and sometimes a pack.
- New pack offers, including 100k, 50k, 35k and 25k.
The most exciting offer again came from FIFA 16 mobile Ultimate Team! We’re hoping they replicate something like this for FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, it shows that it can easily be done!
Can I make FIFA 17 Coins during the Lunar New Year promotion?
Yes, if there are specific requirements for a featured tournament or any other event which increases player hype, you can stock up on those players to make coins. Although last year disappointingly had non-specific requirements for the featured tournament, we’re hoping that will change this year.
Do the Chinese New Year special FUT packs have special items?
No, not necessarily. In previous years, ‘special packs’ have basically been regular promotional packs with a new pack design.
Which informs are available during FIFA 17 Lunar New Year offers?
We will likely see standard TOTW informs in packs. The Team of the Year will have ended before the Lunar New Year promotion starts. We’re hoping EA have something planned.
What offers were available in FIFA 15, FIFA 14 and FIFA 13?
Special Packs & Tournaments.
With expectation building year on year, EA are starting to deliver more exciting content each year, which can be seen with the comparison to FIFA 16 Lunar New Year offers.
