It’s Easter in FIFA Mobile and the latest Seasonal Program highlights the act of finding until April 24th. Featuring special Pack offers and Live Events, find holiday-themed Player Items and different colored Egg & Basket Tokens to unlock in-game content.

Easter Player Items

There are four Easter-themed Master Player items to unlock. Find specific colored and Rainbow Easter Eggs to complete corresponding Plans and receive a random color Player Item. Obtain all four colors of a Player (Yellow, Red, Green, and Blue), then combine it with their corresponding Basket Tokens to unlock their Master Item.

The four featured Players are found in the Color Egg Trade-In Plans or randomly in specific-marked Packs. Find the necessary Eggs by playing specific Easter-themed Live Events and in specific-marked Packs.

Easter Legend

There’s also a special Easter Legend Player Item that you can unlock by adding different colored Baskets to their Plan. Once unlocked, you can upgrade their stats by finding other Baskets and Spotted Colored Eggs. Be sure to check the Plans in-game for specific requirements to complete these and all other Easter-themed Plans.

Golden Eggs

During the Easter Program, it will be possible to find 1 of 10 extremely rare ‘Golden Eggs’ in place of a normal Basket Token from the Easter Player Plans. Each ‘Golden Egg’ contains an e-mail address on it used to redeem a custom-made ‘Golden Egg Player Item’.

You will be able to pick any Player obtained through Packs in FIFA Mobile, which will be sent to you a custom 99-OVR ‘Golden Egg’ version of that Player. The player chosen will use their base position available in-game. If the Player has Items from Multiple positions, you will be able to pick one of those positions for your ‘Golden Egg’ version.

Once all 10 Golden Eggs have been found, in-game messaging will update to mention this and it will no longer be possible to get a Golden Egg. 

  • Limit one (1) Golden Egg per person during the promotion period
