In this day, the prices are lower making it the one with more sales in the year. As usual, Electronic Arts do not miss this chance to boost their sales and releases a variety of offers.

During FIFA 19 Black Friday promotion, EA usually releases something new every hour. These offers include multiple promo packs, lightning rounds in the FUT store and flash squad building challenges.

Black Friday is a big deal for the FUT community since it is the first big promotion of the season and it takes place just before other important events like FUTMAS and TOTY.

The Market

What happens to the cards’ prices during Black Friday?

The expected huge market crash waited by the community for the Black Friday, starts much earlier. As Black Friday approach, the trend is prices begin to gradually fall. After the Cyber Monday, prices will go up again but not to the levels they were a few weeks before. If you really want to maximise your coins, you should sell your teams after the Black Friday and buy them back during the TOTY.

Different to what many people think, the Black Friday isn’t known by having a huge Market Crash. The biggest devaluation occurs before it even starts. In the thirty days before the Black Friday start, the market drops around 20%. It reaches the critical minimum on this day or in the previous Sunday. From there, prices start rising again. It’s a slow and slight recovery but the truth is that this tendency only inverts itself when the TOTY is released.

This behaviour we’ve described is also followed by the IF cards, in a weaker rhythm of course. The best day to buy them is also the Thursday before Black Friday, when they’ve accumulated a devaluation of almost 20%, so that then they can slightly recover on the next days.

  2. Any chance of the flashback Juanfran appearing as a flash SBC?

    Gutted I missed out on him

  3. Heyyy. I have sufficient 83 untradables to play with. Should i sell my main squad now or is it too late? I have suarez diego costa casemiro coutinho jordi alba otw cancelo Isco. Should i sell them now? Most of them have already dropped too bad.

  4. I want to buy Griezmann for 250k but he sells now for 270k. When do you think I should buy him and when will he go for the cheapest?

  5. Est ce que les icones baisse beaucoup? Je pense que les icones vont garder de la valeurs, surtout ces 2 dernieres semaine elles ont pris 300-400k. Dois-je vendre les miennes maintenant histoire de repartir sur du neuf.

    I’m this article you said that you should sell your teams after Black Friday and buy back during TOTY. shouldn’t you sell them before Black Friday and then buyback during TOTY? Or what’s your meaning?

    1. Obviously selling now and buy it back when TOTY comes out is the best thing to do but that way you will not have a team to play.
      What we are suggesting is to sell after Black Friday, when “prices will go up again but not to the levels they were a few weeks before” and buy it back during TOTY.
