Throughout FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, there will be many offers, events and promotions. Historically, the structure of these FUT promotions stay very similar each year, with varying offers year on year. Occasionally EA will introduce new promotions which we’ll detail in full when announced. In our updated FIFA 17 offers, events and promotions calendar you’ll find all the latest information about all the big events in FUT.
FIFA 17 Promotions, Events and Offers
Predicted release: Sunday, October 30th until Tuesday, November 1st, 2016.
EA will run FIFA 17 Halloween promotions which will likely include a featured tournament, pack offers, daily gifts and potentially more. It seems that EA focus more on key events throughout the year, so will likely offer a tournament with exciting Halloween themed requirements. We suggest requirements such as 18 players in the starting 11 and subs who have over 80-85 strength (mimicking the ‘most feared’ player releases on FIFA 16 mobile’). Expect to see more Halloween themed FIFA 17 offers around this time, we may be in for a real treat!
Part one: Sunday, November 13th until Wednesday, November 16th, 2016.
Part two: Wednesday, February 15th until Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017.
The FUT United promotion has been going since FIFA 13 and is now divided into two periods. You are able to win fantastic prizes such as Barclays Premier League and El Clásico football tickets, FIFA 17 coins, FUT packs and additionally receive FUT web app daily gifts. Also there may be several 24 hour pack offers, lightning rounds every 1 – 2 hours containing 15k, 25k, 35k, 50k and 100k packs in limited quantities (first come, first served) and a tournament with favourable win rewards (including more packs!!). As you can imagine, this will result in a huge market crash for FIFA 17 FUT United, especially if the pack weights were as high as last year! Everyone seemed to be packing informs and top rated cards for a few days. Add this date to your FIFA 17 Calendar, as it’s now one of the most significant in FUT.
Predicted release: Wednesday, November 23rd, until Wednesday, November 30th, 2016.
EA Sports partnered with Movember to raise awareness for men’s health. You were able to take part in this movement in FIFA 16 by playing the Movember Cup tournament, available from November 23-30. Requirements were gold players with 100 Chemistry, online win rewards were a premium gold pack and 4,000 coins (4k future), offline were a gold pack and 2,000 coins (1.5k future). We think you’ll see a similar promotion this year for the FIFA 17 Movember tournament.
Predicted release: Thursday, November 24, 2016.
EA Sports FIFA have previously issued promotional packs, tournaments and web app daily gifts to celebrate Thanksgiving. We think you may see something along those lines for FIFA 17 Thanksgiving promotions. This will precede Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Predicted release: Friday, November 25th until Sunday, November 27th, 2016.
The day following Thanksgiving in the United States is known as Black Friday and is regarded as the start of the Christmas shopping season. EA don’t hesitate to release a vast number of FIFA 17 offers in celebration. These pack offers often include increased chances of packing informs or top rated players, new featured tournaments and lightning rounds every hour for 24 hours! We’re led to believe FIFA 17 Black Friday will run for three days and will end just at Cyber Monday is starting. Add this one to your FIFA 17 calendar, Black Friday is a big deal for the FUT community. While not as large as FUT United, you should see a noticeable affect on the FIFA Ultimate Team Transfer Market.
Predicted release: Monday, November 28th, 2016.
Cyber Monday is very similar to the Black Friday offers and lightning rounds, but has typically been over one day. After this time you can expect the market to level out for a couple of days and then continue to fall up until FUTmas. FIFA 17 Cyber Monday offers should directly follow the Black Friday promotion.
17 Days of FIFA
Predicted release: Friday, December 9th, until Sunday, December 25th, 2016.
The 17 Days of FIFA promotion will bring plenty of FIFA 17 offers to celebrate the festive season. EA will give prizes each day to their social network following, including the full game, signed items by top players, in-game items, free FUT 17 packs and potentially a games console.
Predicted release: Sunday, December 18th, 2016 until Wednesday, January 4th, 2017.
The FIFA 17 FUTmas event will also celebrate the festive season. There will be new FIFA 17 offers every day, including lightning rounds, new pack offers, increased chances of finding informs and top players, featured tournaments, free packs and FUT 17 web app daily gifts. This is definitely one to add to your FUT calendar, it’s one of the most exciting promotions of the year!
Lunar New Year
Predicted release: Friday, January 27 until Thursday, February 2, 2017.
The FIFA 17 Lunar New Year promotion, otherwise known as the FUT Chinese New Year offers are typically one week long. Each year is related to an animal sign and 2017 is the year of the Rooster. FIFA 17 offers may include featured tournament, themed packs and potentially more. It seems that EA are starting to introduce more exciting offers than the previous year, so this is another one to add to your FIFA 17 calendar.
St. Patrick’s Day
Predicted release: Thursday, March 16th until Tuesday, March 21st, 2017.
FIFA 17 St Patricks Day will be one of the most hyped FUT promotions of the year. You can expect one of the most exciting featured FUT tournaments of the year, new green cards, a variety of Irish themed pack offers and potentially more FIFA 17 offers. Beware though as a lot of players prepare early for this widely celebrated event! Many Irish players will increase in price. With this comes a lot of investments being made and hence a lot of market fluctuations. Invest early and sell before the promotion actually starts.
Predicted release: Tuesday, March 21st until Tuesday, March 28th, 2017.
FIFA Ultimate Team was first introduced in FIFA 09 on March 19th, 2009. To celebrate the most successful game mode in EA Sports FIFA’s history, they mark the anniversary with a fantastic promotions. The featured tournament is arguably the best of the year (due to all the future win rewards), along with free packs, promotional packs, new position change player cards. We may see further FIFA 17 offers to mark FUT’s 8th Birthday. Add this date to your FUT calendar, it’s one of the most important and EA are starting to show it.
Predicted release: Saturday, April 22nd, until Saturday April 29th, 2017.
FIFA 17 Community Week has been introduced to renew interest within the FUT community, at a typically quiet time. EA have previously released week long offers to mark the relatively new event, from April 22nd – 29th. The daily offers included a free FUT Draft token, new featured tournaments and a variety of pack offers. We can expect similar FIFA 17 offers throughout the promotion. It was introduced in FIFA 15 as the ‘community weekend’ and then changed to ‘community week’ for FIFA 16. Mark this date in your FUT calendar as it appears to be becoming established within FIFA Ultimate Team.
Which events are you going to pencil in your FIFA 17 Calendar? You’ll see a vast number of FIFA 17 promotions and offers throughout the year and we’ll be detailing them in all of the linked guides!
