FIFA21 BLACK FRIDAY
What is Black Friday?
FIFA21 Black Friday is a promotion that runs alongside the real event in the real world. However in Fifa it is slightly different as it is mainly focusing on pushing pack sales. This usually runs on Friday, Sunday and has been on Monday.
When is FIFA21 Black Friday?
Black Friday falls on the 27th November, therefore we expect this promo to start on the same day.
What to Expect
Packs in Store – This started at 2pm on Friday which consisted of a variety of packs ranging from 15k packs to 125k. These were only available for an hour at a time.
Best of TOTW – This is a selection of the most popular players in the previous TOTWs. Last year we saw the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Messi, Ronaldo & Mbappe. This is to entice people to buy packs in the hope they will pack them.
Player SBCs – This is where we could see Flashback, Moment SBCs.
Flash SBCs – These were only available for an hour, every hour. These usually offer decent pack rewards.
TOTW Upgrade SBCs – This is where you have the chance to pack players from previous TOTWs. These are usually repeatable.
League SBCs – League Specific SBCs which consists of an SBC for each team.
League Upgrade SBCs – These are focusing on the Top 5 Leagues. These will be Standard and/or Premium.
When is best to sell your team?
Looking at the trends of previous Fifa’s the decline starts around two weeks prior to FIFA21 Black Friday. Let’s take a look at a few example
Here is CR7’s Gold Card graph in Fifa 20. As you can see, each week his card drops a bit more. He drops 1.566k to 1.344k (7th November to 24th November)
How to Prepare for FIFA21 Black Friday
Packs in store – Make sure you get in on bids, snipes on Fodders as these will be useful with SBCs.
Of course our DEALFINDER works great for identifying great deals.
Best of TOTW players – Their IFs will drop significantly on the release of the team selection as people sell off in the panic. The best time to buy would most likely be on Sunday (as you can see below from KDBs graph in Fifa 20). You can buy their gold cards in advance as out of pack investments.
Player SBCs – Stock on fodder, I recommend 83+. Make sure they are from popular nations and leagues.
Flash SBCs – You want to be buying cards from popular leagues and nations during any supply to ensure you can complete these SBCs as they drain your club. As close to discard as possible
TOTW Upgrade SBCs – Focus on buying 83 to 84 rated cards from popular leagues and nations.
League SBCs – Start to stock players from each team, ideally you want to be buying the players where there are not many alternatives in particular positions as these will go up the most. Silvers are usually the best for this.
League Upgrade SBCs – These usually are Standard and/or Premium. You want to be buying Gold cards (rare and non-rare) from each of the top 5 Leagues as close to discard as possible
