FIFA 18 green cards are awarded in FUT 18 to a selection of the best Irish 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.
These cards are released through weekly objectives and can be used to complete specific squad building challenges. They will never be available in packs or in the transfer market. 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 complete the corresponding objectives.
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 in late March. The selection of the best 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, a selection of player’s cards are released on green instead of their normal colours gold, silver and bronze.
FIFA 18 Green Cards Prices
What happens to the green cards’ prices?
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.
