FUT Swap Items
After first being introduced last year, FIFA Swap Items are back for FIFA 19. They’re essentially another card-type to collect, operating as tokens which you can exchange for for rewards. There are 14 of these cards released per month, with the highest rewards in FIFA 19 requiring around 12 Swap Items to redeem. We’ve broken things down below, so that you can start collecting FUT Swap Items and getting some awesome rewards. Note that the current run of Swap Items will only last until February 2, and after that will be completely useless.

The only reason to collect Swap Player Items is to trade them in for rewards. The rewards are pretty great though, making the grind required to get the cards a little more worthwhile.

Can You Carry Swap Cards Over to Next Month?
FUT Swap Items are month-specific, so cannot be used once the current run expires. The FUT Swap Items for January will run right up until February 2, at which point 14 new Player Items and 4 new Player Rewards will be added. Your Swap Item Cards will be pretty much useless at that point, so make sure you trade them for rewards.
