Get 5 Free Rare Gold Packs


To celebrate FUT’s fifth birthday, FIFA Ultimate Team will be holding special events throughout the week.

The first thing you should do is to go to your console’s or PC UT and open the 5 untradeable Gold Rare packs that are waiting for you until March 24th. Each pack has 12 rare cards that you can not sell and which discard price is 0 (like the welcome pack when you started playing FUT 14). These packs are available for everyone except for mobile players. Don’t look for them on your FUT Web App or Companion App. They will not be there. Only on your PC or console.

You can also expect several Happy Hours during the week and more surprises. Since the TOTW of this week has top players, like Messi, David Silva and Buffon (click HERE to check it), we may expect a drop in the cards’ prices.

Until March 20th 6pm, the 15k packs are available with a 10k coin-only discount. Take the chance to get up to five of these packs only by 5k each. Don’t forget also to open your Ultimate Team everyday until March 24th. There is a daily gify waiting for you.

Share with us which card you got. And good luck!



  1. Not really related but on the iOS game I completed the have a team 85+ rating with 100 chemistry mission and got three gold player packs. I got 87 modric and I want to sell him but it won’t let me, why is this?

  2. A cannit believe there untradeable i got 88 hazzard 88suarez if buffon if defoe and i also recieved aguero twice and also recieved david silva

  3. I still cannot believe my PS3 froze when i got SIF Messi!!! I was in the pack for so long – screaming in my living room! The worst part was that my cheeky little bro deleted the picture of him in the pack

  4. wtf i got David Villa and a few other decent players in two free gold packs and i can’t select them to play!

  5. Thanks for releasing the two free packs today as my brother has previously had very bad pack luck and wouldn’t stop moaning till today when he got SIF Reus and he fits well into his team which he is extremely happy about so I guess thank you for shutting him up eventually 😀

  6. I got yaya toure but can’t sell him which is annoying just want to sell him but at the moment building a bpl squad round him so not bad really hoping for more Aguero or David silva or van persie someone like that next time

  7. Why did i get free packs today as well? Same ones, gold 12 untradeable, 2 this time though not 5 or 10? Im confused

    • For all the Cu how have faced the issue in Ultimate Team where users do not receive results while searching the Transfer Market EA as a good will gesture gifted 2 free untradeable Gold Rare 25K packs – now available to all FUTers who created an account before April 1st.

      Please login to the FUT Store on your console/mobile/PC game or the mobile companion app (not the Web App) to claim the free packs. Be sure to claim them before Friday April 11th at 11:59pm UK (3:59pm PT) or they will no longer be available.

    • Hi.
      When something big happen, like TOTY release, the market is back to “normal” in 1.5 to 2 weeks. It depends of many factors. If EA doesn’t release any more very special happy hour, market should be back to normal again in a week. But as usually, the “normal” prices should be slightly lower than before the 5 years of FUT.

  8. hey pal, I was just wondering if you get the 5 free promo pack on ps3 as my mate did not receive them. if so how could he get them xxx

  9. I got at least 2 team fitness cards but they never show when I want to assign them to a player. To be honest this always seems to be the case if I send a fitness card to my club…….

    • One thing is a team fitness card. Other thing is a player fitness card. You probably got team fitness card that can not be applied on a player. Pressing square (Playstation) on the active club menu you will go to the actions menu. There you can apply a team fitness card, which means that the fitness of all your players will be improved.

      • Whenever I select the team fitness cards from the club menu on the xbox, it only gives me the options to list or sell – which you obviously can’t do. It’s the same with ones I’ve purchased in the past. I have to basically assign them straight away

  10. Hi,
    I usually never play FUT but when I heard about the free packs I created my team, I went in to the store and saw I had no packs to open, I turned my console off and then on again but nothing happened, I erased the team and made a new one like 2 times but nothing happened pls help me

  11. I’ve spent probably over £100 on FIFA over the year and I’ve spent more on an account that I had before,but never I have I got any players close to what I got out the free packs, why is that.. Cos it’s a slap in the face when u play FIFA loads and always try getting decent players..then just get given amazing players with no value..why is that ???

  12. All the people that got 10 packs aren’t lucky the people who got 5 are because in the 10 packs you get 12 items and 3 rares in the 5 you get 24 items and 17 rares I got IF Buffon and Yaya Touré in mine I play on Ps4 but I opened them in the app. If you’re on any console released before the Xbox Elite or Ps3 slim you would have got the 10 packs. If you have those consoles or any released after you get the five. Each one has it’s advantages the 5 is more players and more rares and the ten is more chances to get InForms

      • Because all of my friends were saying how lucky they were getting 10 packs instead of 5 and I thought they were aswell but the 6 of my friends who said that 2 of them are on Xbox 360 and 4 on ps3 but one of my friends just got his new Xbox One and said he only got 5 packs. And all of them told me that they got 12 items in each and one of my friends brothers got a Ps3 slim and is selling his Xbox Elite and he got five packs on each. I don’t actually know 100% but it adds together perfectly when thinking about it

  13. Hi, do you know why I could open the packs on the companion app and the web app. And I only received 5 when most got 10

  14. Hi. I didn´t get any packs. I went to my UT account. Game was saying There are 5 packs available for you, but there is nothing. I need some help.

  15. have two accounts one is running out of membership and other is renewed got neymar in my free packs and was wondering could i swap him to my other account is this possible as he is untradeable?

  16. We should be able to sell these free players, got IF Gerrard,Iniesta,Rooney,Ramos,C & Gundogan sitting in my club, fucked us over again, rather have nothing, for fuck sake EA!

  17. The only useful card I got in my 5 Free Packs was Vidic. I did get Dante, Song, Ramires, but already had them so had to junk them for a whopping Zero coins. Oh well.

  18. Got humbles, isco and so many contracts!!!! (not that thats such a bad thing) also got a couple of players i already have so now i can sell those players and make a bit of money by selling them (good advice trust me). Also 8k bonuses in the packs was a nice surprise

  19. hey rodrigo!
    i have a lot of players to sell! should i wait one week or sell an soon an possible?
    i think waiting is better, isn’t it?

    • Depends if you want to buy other cards or not. If you don’t want him for your team you have two options:
      1) Sell him now and use the coins you got to buy other player by a good price;
      2) Sell him in 1 to 2 weeks by 30% more but the other cards will be more expensive too.

  20. I have heard rumours you can sell these ‘untradeable’ cards after ten matches-is this true? And if so, do you have to play the player for ten matches or does he automatically become traceable after you have played ten more matches? Thanks!

  21. Hey ! I play Fifa Ultimate team on ps3 and on pc – yesterday i logged in with my pc and i received 10 packs… dont know why – but do i get also 5 packs on my ps3 account ? or is it like 5 packs per account so i get 10 packs in total on my pc ?

  22. I got 10 packs but whe I opened my first it disconnected me from ultimate team…when I came back I only had 5?Please help

  23. Hello Rodrigo,

    I have a question. You said that players will receive a free gift everyday if they open fut until 24th March. Does it require the web app?

  24. Hello Rodrigo,

    I am a PC player and use a very old model, so my computer always says that ‘your screen does not have high enough resolution’ when I enter the store. And as I can’t get my packs on the Web App, how can I redeem my packs?


  25. Hi,

    Yesterday I got 10 packs and it was on mobile iPhone app… Found Pique, Santi Cazorla, De Rossi, Alaba, Demichelis and some others not worth mentioning.

    Guess I’m just lucky to have 10 packs and on mobile app 🙂

  26. Hi, i opened the 5k packs….the best player i got was kompany.
    Should i sell him now or wait for a day or two?

    • Depends if you want to buy other cards or not. If you don’t want him for your team you have two options:
      1) Sell him now and use that coins to buy other player by a good price;
      2) Sell him in 1 to 2 weeks by 30% more but the other cards will be more expensive too.
