Over the past couple of weeks, the FIFA community has enjoyed a variety of content. However, this doesn't mean that EA's done yet.
With the FIFA FUT Birthday promo event just around the corner, EA is set to release a new promo event in conjunction with the ever-popular promo. St. Patrick's Day has been an annual event which has been celebrated every year by EA. Each year, we see new content to celebrate this day.
St. Patrick's Day this year falls on the 17th of March. With FUT Birthday expected to be released on the previous Friday, it's thought that the two promo event will overlap for the first time in FIFA 19. In FIFA 18, this was also the case so this is where the speculation has come from.
What is St. Patrick's Day in FIFA?
St. Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held each year on the 17th of March, as a result, we typically see new content in FIFA to celebrate.
Each year there is a release of a special St. Patrick's Day Team consisting of Republic of Ireland players. Typically, the ratings are the same as their base gold card, however, this year this could change slightly. With the recent criticism of FIFA 20 by both the media and the community, we could see something completely different this year to help install some life back into FIFA.
Last year, in FIFA 20, we saw the introduction of daily and weekly objectives. These are challenges that can be completed in FIFA which can result in different rewards. For St. Patrick's Day last year we saw new cards released into the weekly objectives. Different Republic of Ireland players was released with the same rating as their base gold card. These players were then required for different FIFA 18 FUT Birthday Squad Building Challenges. We could see something similar in the next FIFAs.
How Do The FIFA St. Patrick's Day Cards Work?
The St. Patrick's Day cards in previous installments of FIFA have always been the same rating as their base gold card. There is no stat increase whatsoever. As mentioned, however, this could be different in FIFA 21.
Last year these were required for FIFA 20 Squad Building Challenges.
Who Is In The FIFA St. Patrick's Day Team?
As of the date of this blog (14/03/19), there is no official statement on the St. Patrick's Day team. However, the release date of this team should be on the 15/03/19 with the announcement sometime midday.
Players are typically picked at random and the squad size can vary. Last year, we had a total of 5 different St. Patrick's Day cards but in previous editions of the game, we've had much more.
