11 janvier 2022 by Calum Walker

Want a slightly different gift for the football fans in your life?

If you're looking for a personalised and truly surprising gift, a real-life football card from CardsPlug is the perfect choice. But with so many designs to choose from, how can you know which one to pick? 

This quick guide will take you through our designs, showing you which may be best suited for each type of fan.

If you have any questions about making a real life FIFA card, be sure to look at our full guide to personalised football cards too!


FUT and Football Game Designs

Our most popular football card designs are based on the ones you'll find in football games like FIFA22. So while these designs are great for a wide range of football fans, FIFA fans will absolutely love them!

The most iconic card in our collection is the Football's Greatest card. In the game, this design is saved only for the greatest footballers in history. So it's pretty amazing for a fan to see their name and face on the card instead. 

On the other hand, a young footballer might love our One To Watch design. This football card recognises up-and-coming stars in the game - and predicts their future ratings in each football skill. If you have a young football player and fan in the house, this could be perfect.

While for hardcore FIFA fans, they might love one of our classic gaming designs istead. Something like a Gold Inform (given to players who are playing well at the moment) or a Team Of The Season card could be ideal. 


Special Edition Designs

CardsPlug Club Designs are inspired by over 24 of Europe's biggest football clubs. So if you're buying for a diehard fan, this could be a great choice. 

In a similar vein, you also have the special edition range we designed to mark Euro 2020

This collection features a card design for each country that took part in the tournament. So although Euro 2020 has passed, this is a great choice for those who never miss an opportunity to represent their international colours.


Some Personal Favourites

Still not sure which CardsPlug design to go for? Here are some of my personal favourites from the ones we haven't covered already.

Our S22 Signature Star design is a very sleek look that keeps it classy. The card will be massively appreciated by FIFA fans. But it'll also go down nicely with those who aren’t likely to recognise it from the game. 

If you fancy more of a splash of colour, the S22 Record Breaker card is the one for you. A shattered design with a burst of colour not only looks good, but realistically, who doesn’t want to be a record breaker.

The S22 Heroes design is my final personal favourite. Vibrant purple is just a colour we don’t see enough of nowadays. A good-looking card that’s sure to make any FIFA fan happy, provided the bold colour scheme is up their alley.



I hope this guide has given you an idea of what CardsPlug design your football fan might like best.

With so many flawless designs on our website, I’m sure they'll love whichever design you go for. But if you still can't decide, you can always check out our most popular designs here.
