FIFA 17 St Patricks Day Introduction
What is the St Patricks Day event?
St Patricks Day is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland. Electronic Arts joined in FIFA 13 to the Irish celebration that takes place every year, releasing the most awaited tournament of the year. This special FUT tournament is usually the one with the greatest win rewards.
Since FIFA 15, EA is also releasing special Irish themed FUT promotional packs and assigning green cards to a selection of twenty three Irish players. The only difference between these cards and the original ones is the colour. During five days, the player’s cards pulled from packs are released on green instead of their normal colours. The discard prices of these cards are also different. The FIFA St Patricks Day cards have the same quick sell prices of the other In Form cards. A variety of Irish themed pack offers will also be released during this promotion.

How the Market is Affected by the St Patricks Day Event
What happens to the cards’ prices during the St Patricks Day Promotion?
The St Patricks Day promotion has a huge impact on the FUT 17 market, but almost only in the Irish players cards.
Many Irish players increase in price a few days before St Patricks Day tournament start. Specific players will more than double in price, so investing early can make you a lot of FIFA 17 coins. Remember to sell before the promotion actually starts. The best time to buy Irish players is during the TOTY but beware as players are starting to invest earlier and earlier. Even some of the cheaper non-rares increase considerably in price, especially if they fit the tournament requirements and are given a green team card. You should sell your investments in the week before the promotion starts if you want to maximise your profit.
In the coming weeks, we will add a much deeper explanation to what will happen to the prices cards in the market during FIFA 17 St Patricks Day event.
