Short cut



FIFA 17 iMOTM Cards Introduction

What is an International Man of the Match?

The International Man of the Match cards were created in FUT 12 to reward the best players of Euro 2012 matches. In that time they were purple, but in the FIFA World Cup 2014 they have been replaced by green ones. These cards are assigned to the most in form players of important international competitions, like World Cup, Copa America or European Championship. However, in 2015 the Copa América didn’t get a single green card.

Just like MOTM cards, can only exist one iMOTM card for each match. FIFA 17 iMOTM cards become available in packs for only 24 hours. During this period, International Man of the Match cards replace the corresponding regular cards. In other words, in the day a player gets his iMOTM cards in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling an iMOTM card from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the regular card of that player on another day.

If you own the regular card of a player elected iMOTM, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding iMOTM version in the market or pull it from a pack in that day.

FIFA 17 iMOTM Cards Availability

When the International Man of the Match Cards will be available?

It is not confirmed if iMOTM cards will feature in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team or not. In the past editions, these cards were assigned to European Championships (FIFA 12 and FIFA 16), World Cup (FIFA 14) and Copa America (FIFA 16). Since none of these important international tournaments will be played in 2017, it looks legit to think that iMOTM will not feature in the game. If released, it will reward the most in form players of the 10th FIFA Confederations Cup which will be played in Russia from June 17 to July 2.

Just like MOTM cards, these iMOTM are usually added to packs at midnight (UK time). You can find an iMOTM card in any pack with players cards.

You can have the regular card and the iMOTM card of the same player in your club. However, you cannot use them both in your squad at the same time.

FIFA 17 iMOTM Cards Ratings and Stats

How big are the ratings and stats boosts?

The ratings and attributes of FIFA 17 iMOTM cards are usually boosted in one or two points, compared with their last TOTW/MOTM/iMOTM/Hero cards or, if they don’t exist, their regular cards. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.

The position of the players in these cards may change if, in that match, they played really well in a different position.

It is possible to a player to have more than one iMOTM card, if they have been assigned in different games. These cards differ from each other only in the ratings and attributes (eventually in the position too). The more recent is the card, the higher is its rating.



FIFA 17 iMOTM Cards Prices

What happens to the iMOTM cards’ prices?

As usual, FIFA 17 iMOTM cards will be more expensive as soon as they are released. If the player is only available in FIFA packs for one day, it is possible that their price can begin to gradually rise over time, if they don’t receive a higher rated inform.

In the coming weeks, we will add a much deeper explanation to what will happen to the FIFA 17 iMOTM cards prices in the market.
