The Exchanges vary from trading 75-85 OVR Players for 88 OVR Lantern Festival Players. Three Lantern Festival players, 20 Elites, and a 90 rated master can be exchanged for a 92 OVR ST Cédric Bakambu. Check their prices in the market, before investing in them, just to make sure that you don’t incur any huge loss for claiming the players.

The final exchange involves the 93 OVR LM Sadio Mané which requires a massive 20 elites, a master, four Lantern Festival Players, and also the 90 OVR LM Sadio Mané, which you obtained for free from the store offers on day 30. Now if you use the gems, you can grab him early, but you will be wasting the gems unless he is worth huge in the market with people buying him.

FIFA Mobile 22 Lantern Festival Event Tips and Tricks

Being one of the first events of FIFA Mobile 22, Lantern Festival is a very very basic and fodder event. It is not even a proper event, it’s a five-week-long daily store offer. So here are our additional tips and tricks to help you get the best from the event.

Now tips for the event. Remember to claim your daily offers. That’s it. The one and only tip for the event. Use the April Daily Point for Lantern offers from time to time to claim the Lantern the Festival players and in turn, you can exchange them in the exchanges.


As stated earlier before doing any of the exchanges check the values of the players you are going for in the market. If there are no buy orders, then your investment can be a waste. Now coming to the big daddy Spotlight Player 93 OVR LM Sadio Mané.

Don’t think of using your Gems to grab the 90 rated version of Mané early because he becomes practically free-to-play on Day 30, and there wouldn’t be many buy orders of the 93 version prior either. It is a viable option only if you see buy orders on him prior to that day. Coming to the exchange, you need

  • 90 OVR Lantern Festival LM Sadio Mané 
  • 4 Any Lantern Festival Players 
  • 90+ OVR Any Player 
  • 20 80+ OVR Players 

Now the four Festival Players, you can trade in the same players more than once as these are exchanges and not SBCs. You will get one guaranteed in 88 OVR GK Uğurcan Çakır from the daily offers and will be three short. You should be able to grab the other three from additional Lantern Point offers, the Lantern player exchanges, or just from the market. Do not forget you will still need the bunch of elites and masters and things can get slightly tricky if your inventory is empty.

If 90 OVR Sadio Mané is free just playing through the event for a month and you can expect to have about 3-3.5 million coins in the masters and elites. That means this 93 OVR Sadio Mané is a relatively cheap upgrade. It’s entirely up to you and he’s free to play and a player that everyone’s going to probably end up with.

93 OVR LM Sadio Mané is free-to-play and for a relatively cheap offer

He indeed is, as long as you’re playing 30 of the 35 days and you don’t forget to claim your points each and every day. Also, keep in mind, that his being free-to-play will significantly hit his value in the market as well!

That’s it the Lantern Festival Event in a nutshell. There’s nothing else to say as it’s pretty straightforward.

It’s a five-week-long store offer, that’s it! Lantern Festival, that’s all this is.
