A SpecialEffect FIFA 18 kit

This is pretty special.

Electronic Arts have released a custom-designed SpecialEffect football kit into FIFA 18. It’s available for one week as a reward for completing an Ultimate Team weekly objective and - ok we’re biased - but the design is pretty darn awesome!

You can earn the kit for your Ultimate Team during 10-17 November. The kit is available from 6pm on Friday 10th.

FIFA’s one of the most requested games that people ask for our help to play, and we’re beyond chuffed that players now have the opportunity to thump in the goals in a SpecialEffect shirt.

A huge thank you to Electronic Arts for making this a thing. They’ve provided plenty of fantastic support over many years and this is just brilliant! #specialFUTkit

The kit was launched on Friday 10 November at Wembley Stadium, courtesy of The Football Association. Guests from EA, Frome Town FC and Northampton Town FC were welcomed along with Worthing FC owner and SpecialEffect beneficiary George Dowell, plus SpecialEffect Ambassadors Shaz Hossian and Mark Fosbrook. 

EA had commissioned a small number of printed shirts, and these were presented to the guests.
