FIFA 17 FUT United Introduction

What is FUT United?
 

FUT United is a promotion that Electronic Arts runs for FIFA Ultimate Team players twice a year: the first edition takes place in November and the second one in February. This promotion is known by five main offers: the chance to winning VIP tickets for important football matches from Premier League or La Liga; a million FIFA 17 coins draw; Jumbo Premium Gold Pack giveways; new featured tournament; and special Happy Hours.

In order to be eligible to these prizes, the community have to play and win any FIFA Ultimate Team match (which includes the mode’s introductory match, Seasons, Tournaments, Challenges, both online and offline) except FUT Draft during the Promotion Period. Usually, FUT United is also associated with the release of Daily Gifts.

During this event most of the prices go down slightly, especially during the best Happy Hours and gifts. However, a crash like happens with Black Friday, FUTMas or TOTY are totally out of question.

Details on FIFA 17 FUT United offers will be updated below.

    How the Market is Affected by FUT United

    What happens to the cards’ prices during FUT United?
     

    During the FUT United most of the prices will go down slightly, especially during the best Happy Hours and offers, like lightning rounds that were released at two hour intervals last year.

    If you want, you can sell your players before FUT United begins (as soon as possible) and buy them back later.

    Part of the community knows that FUT United happens some time around the month of november, but doesn’t know when exactly. Plus, until EA announces it, which is on the same day it begins, there’s always some level of uncertainty on whether it will actually happen or not. Naturally that’s why it is found that the market only reacts to this event after it starts.

    In previous years, FUT United hosted the first market crash. On FIFA 16, for example, between the first and the last day of the event, the market’s prices decreased around 20%, a very considerable percentage taking into consideration the fact that it only lasted four days. This year, due to the greater importance of Halloween, it’s likely that this devaluation won’t be too big, although the potential 100k packs release during the event might work as its differential.

    PLAYERS PRICES DURING THE FIRST EDITION OF FUT UNITED ON FIFA 16
    DAY -2 -1 1 2 3 4 +1 +2 +3
    % ↑ 0% ↑ 0% ↓ 9% ↓ 12% ↑ 1% ↑ 1% ↑ 1% ↓ 4% ↓ 4%


     

    Normally the market devaluation occurs mainly on the first days of the event. Then, in case no other demanded FUT packs are released on the store, it’s most certain that the prices maintain themselves. Since the Black Friday comes just a few days after the end of FUT United, the market doesn’t recover at all.

    IF cards aren’t immune to FUT United. However, this IF card price decrease isn’t half as strong as the price decrease of NIF cards.

    As the season advances, less interesting are the new events for the players. A good example of this is the second edition of FUT United. The impact this promotion has on the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team transfer market is almost despicable.

    PLAYERS PRICES DURING THE SECOND EDITION OF FUT UNITED ON FIFA 16
    DAY -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 +1 +2 +3
    % ↑ 0% ↑ 0% ↑ 0% ↓ 2% ↑ 0% ↓ 1% ↓ 1% ↓ 1% ↓ 1% ↑ 0% ↑ 1% ↑ 1%


     
     

    This event starts with no previous announcement, which means only after this moment prices start to gradually drop. This price decrease is felt during all of the days of the event, therefore the minimum is reached on the last day.

    After FUT United, normally a slight market recovery is registered.

    Trump won’t win the election and there won’t be a FUT market crash during FUT United……. FUT United was the start of a short term crash last year, prices dropped 25%-40%. This is usually the first time we see the big packs and lots of offers.
