FIFA 19 Future Stars COUNTDOWN: Ratings release time, new FUT cards, predictions

FIFA 19 Future Stars is getting its full unveiling today with Ultimate Team fans finding out all the new, inbound FUT cards ratings.

EA has all week been teasing FIFA 19 Future Stars with the first teaser that showed the date the full unveiling would take place dropping on Monday.

On Wednesday the EA Sports FIFA Twitter announced FIFA 19 Future Stars and the criteria for which players could get a FUT ratings boost.

FIFA 19 Future Stars are players that are aged 23 or younger, are not yet an established star and have the potential for big future ratings.

On Wednesday the first three FIFA 19 Future Stars cards were revealed with three more FUT ratings announced the following day.

The full FIFA 19 Future Stars release is now today with fans on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch gearing up for the big launch.

If you’re wondering when the FIFA 19 Future Stars FUT cards will be out then don’t worry, Express.co.uk has you covered.

We have details on everything you need to know about the brand new FIFA 19 promotion.

FIFA 19 FUTURE STARS – WHEN IS THE RELEASE TIME? WHEN WILL THE FULL FUT CARDS RATINGS BE REVEALED?

EA has not officially announced at what time the FIFA 19 Future Stars FUT cards will be released, simply confirming it will happen on Friday January 18.

However, looking at past releases might give an indication of when it will launch.

For instance, the latest FIFA 19 TOTW line-up is announced at 3pm UK time on Wednesdays with the new cards becoming available later at 6pm.

So EA could follow that release pattern for the FIFA 19 Future Stars packs.

Alternatively, maybe the new FUT cards will go live around the same time as the last big Future Stars announcement.

On Thursday the FIFA 19 Twitter revealed three new FUT cards in a post that went live at 6pm UK time.

Maybe the full ratings will be revealed today at that time with the FUT cards becoming available a few hours after that.

FIFA 19 FUTURE STARS – WHAT PLAYERS COULD FEATURE IN THE FULL FUT SQUAD? WHO COULD GET AN ULTIMATE TEAM RATINGS BOOST?

So far six young, rising stars have been revealed as featuring in the FIFA 19 Future Stars squad.

These players are:

Phil Foden – CAM – OVR 88 – Manchester City

Vinicius Junior – LW – OVR 92 – Real Madrid

Matthijs de Ligt – CB – OVR 92 – Ajax

Justin Kluivert – LW – OVR 87 – Roma

Houssem Aouar – CM – OVR 91 – Lyon

Achraf Hakimi – RB – OVR 86 – Borussia Dortmund

These are the players that have been teased so far but we can imagine there’s some big young, rising stars lined up for the FIFA 19 Future Stars squad.

So who else could feature and get a FIFA 19 FUT cards ratings boost?

Because EA stipulated that a player that’s a Future Star can’t be an established name it rules out a number of players.

So, that would rule out players like PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and Tottenham’s Dele Alli who are already household names.

But it does possibly open the door to a number of young football stars making waves across European football.

The first name that springs to mind would be England and Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho who has been a revelation since joining the German side.

Sancho has scored six goals and got seven assists so far in the Bundesliga this season and has played a pivotal role in his side’s title charge.

Hirving Lozano, who scored the goal for Mexico that condemned Germany to their first defeat in last year’s World Cup, is another contender.

Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong, who has been compared to Barcelona icon Johan Cruyff, is another player that could feature in FIFA 19 Future Stars.

While Italy starlet Nicolo Barella, who has drawn comparisons to the great Andres Iniesta, is another player that could be in the Future Stars squad.

Benjamin Pavard, who is joining Bayern Munich this summer, could also feature.

While Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who has attracted plenty of interest from top European clubs, is another contender.

Arsenal’s on-loan youngster Reiss Nelson as well as young guns Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi could get picked by EA as could Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

It remains to be seen which players make the cut in the final FIFA 19 Future Stars squad but fans are only hours away from finding out.
