FIFA 18 green cards are awarded in FUT 18 to a selection of the best Irish players and released all at once in a single FUT squad of 23 players. It was created to celebrate the St Patricks Day. Let’s learn something more about these (not so) special Players cards.
FIFA 18 Green Cards
What is a FUT St Patricks card?
To celebrate the Irish St Patricks Day, Electronic Arts introduced in FIFA 15 new green coloured cards. These not inform cards are assigned to a selection of the best Irish players and released all at once in a single FUT squad of 23 players.
These cards become available in packs for five days. During this period, which starts at 6pm (UK time), the FIFA 18 green cards replace the corresponding regular not coloured cards. In other words, if a player gets his St Patricks card in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling a green card from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.
If you own the regular card of a St Patricks player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the green version, you will need to buy the corresponding version in the market or pull it from a pack in that period.
When the FUT St Patricks will be available?
The green cards are released once a year during the FUT St Patricks Day promotion. We estimate that the cards will added to FUT packs between 15 March (Thursday) and 19 March 2018 (Monday). The selection of the best 23 players from Republic of Ireland will be released at 6pm UK time.
Ratings and Stats
How big are the ratings and stats boosts?
The only difference between the St Patricks cards and their respective original NIF cards is the colour. There is no boost in the stats or in the attributes. During the period of the promotion, usually five days in mid March, a selection of player’s cards pulled from packs are released on green instead of their normal colours gold, silver and bronze.
The green cards have the same quick sell prices of the others In Form cards. For that reason, their price ranges are also higher.
FIFA 18 Green Cards Prices
What happens to the green cards’ prices?
Despite not performing better in the pitch, the ‘greens’ are sold for a higher price in the FUT transfer market because of three main reasons: many people like to collect them; to fulfil the SBC requirements; the discard price of these cards are the same one of in form cards. The FIFA 18 green cards will be more expensive as soon as they are released.
Many Irish players increase in price a few days before the St Patricks Day SBC starts. Specific players will more than double in price, so investing early can make you a lot of FIFA 18 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 SBC 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.
