FIFA 17 is getting into the Christmas spirit by giving away 12 days' worth of free items in Ultimate Team.
You'll receive a free gift--be it coins, a pack, or something else entirely--every day by logging into FUT. Every player will receive a special Christmas-themed kit the first time they log in during this period, with an added bonus freebie if you log into the web app. The festival also includes a number of new squad building challenges, with new player prize cards up for grabs. For full details on the squad building challenges, check out the EA Sports blog.
The promotion started December 16, though confusingly the web app states that FUTmas will end on January 3--18 days after it started.
Publisher EA has given away a number of free kits for good causes in the past few weeks, most notably to commemorate a number of Chapecoense players who died in a tragic plane crash. The company also gave away a rainbow-colored kit to support the Premier League's #RainbowLaces campaign, which aims to support LGBT people in the football community. Lastly, FIFA Mobile got exclusive Games for (RED) content to help fight AIDS.
