POTM SBC Investing is a trading method that takes advantage of guessing the Player of the Month winner and his challenges requirements.

The Method

Player of the Month items are unique cards, featuring boosted stats, assigned to monthly winners of six leagues: Premier League, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Eredivisie, and Ligue 1. They can be earned exclusively via specific squad building challenges. All of them are great opportunities to invest in players and make huge profits. The key is working out the winner as early as possible. Then recognising the requirements that EA could put into an SBC for that player.

The nominations for the POTM awards are usually released about one to two weeks before the award. This will narrow down the possible winners to up to 7 players, except for Ligue 1 that only has three nominees. We strongly recommend checking our POTM dedicated pages to see our early predictions and vote community results (awards are decided by a combination of a public vote and a panel of experts).

The majority of FUT players don’t have millions of coins to invest in an untradeable card. So, the POTM SBC needs to be affordable enough that lots of players can complete it. Determining the most likely requirements has got a lot harder as EA have tried to make it more difficult for traders to generate FUT coins.

A couple of good investments are low-priced TOTWs in the POTMs league and lower value cards that link to the POTM winner. Past clubs and clubs the winner scored against are often part of POTM SBCs. Knowing when to sell is the key to maximizing profit with POTM investing. We recommend selling before the SBC drops. EA seems committed to changing up SBC requirements to make sure investors don’t make coins.

Common Mistakes

When using the POTM SBC Investing Method, the most common mistakes are the following ones:

Late Investing
Most players are already inflated a couple of days before a POTM SBC drops. If you miss the window and players are already too high. just move on and remember to get in early for next month.

Panic Selling
If your players don’t meet the requirements and you don’t desperately need the coins, hold them. You never know when EA will drop something that will increase their value again.

Step by Step

    1. Choose your Targets
      Determine who is likely to win POTM as early as possible. The earlier you decide which player is going to win, the earlier you can invest. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to see the first early predictions and community votes results.


    1. Determine the Requirements
      Use past POTM SBCs to work out what SBC requirements may be. Usually, they are based on leagues, nations and past clubs.


    1. Buy
      Buying before the hype is key to making the most coins possible with this method. So, as soon as you have decided who your target is and which SBC requirements you may face, it’s time to buy. A lot of players will be investing in the same players you want to pick up. The earlier you buy, the cheaper your POTM SBC investments will be.


    1. Hold
      If you invested in a few players in an early stage, you will have to hold them until their price rises.


  1. Sell
    Selling before the SBC drops is most of the time the best decision. EA seems dedicated to making it as hard as possible for investors to make coins. They will often switch up requirements on the POTM SBCs because they know a lot of players will be trying to make FUT coins. If your investments are of lower value, you could risk holding them to try and make a bigger profit. If you eventually hold your player until after the SBC is released and your cards are not required, don’t panic sell. Hold those players because the FUT market will be flooded with people trying to get rid of them. Remember the FUT market is always fluctuating and prices will recover eventually.

“Trading Methods based on IRL performances are always fun and this one is not an exception. If you pick the winner, your chances of making coins are high.”
