Sick FIFA Ultimate Players Cash In On The Tragic Death Of Josef Sural

Some sick FIFA fans are attempting to profit from the tragic death of Czech Republic footballer Josef Sural by increasing the price of his card on Ultimate Team.

The Aytemiz Alanyaspor striker, 28, died at the hospital where he was taken after a bus carrying them back from a game at Kayserispor crashed.

According to Alanyaspor's chairman Hasan Çavuşoğlu,the bus had two drivers and both fell asleep. The two drivers have been detained by police and an investigation into the incident has been launched.

But unfortunately, a number of FIFA players have made the distasteful decision to make an-game profit on Sural - 'price-fixing' his 73-rated silver card so that it goes for 10,000 coins.


Unfortunately, this is not an isolated instance. It's happened before with the tragic deaths of both Junior Malanda and Davide Astori, while more recently EA Sports felt they had to do something about it when the same situation occurred following the passing of the late Emiliano Sala.


EA temporarily reduced his maximum price on FIFA Ultimate Team and then later told their audience that as a mark of respect and to honour his legacy, Sala has been removed from FIFA 19.

They issued the following statement: "It is with great sorrow that we learn the disappearance of Emiliano Sala. To respectfully honor his story, we will implement the following changes:

  • Sala will be removed from the FC Nantes team in FIFA.
  • Sala's FUT cards will no longer be available in the packages.
  • The price of Sala cards on FUT will remain permanently at the current price.

"We again sending our serious sincerest sympathies to his family, to Cardiff City to Nantes and to all his fans."


Here's hoping that EA make the same move in regards to Sural's items but they really ought to prepare better for this happening again.
