FIFA 18's next big event is upon us. EA Sports have dropped "Path to Glory," an event that introduces a brand new item type that's focused on the journey to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. These new items are aimed at the younger generation looking to make a name for themselves on the world's stage. Much like regular Ones to Watch cards, these items will have the chance of getting upgrades throughout the year based on real-life performance.
Avid players of the Weekend League or Squad Battles will be excited to see fan-favorite Gabriel Jesus among the list of players available. Same goes for Marcus Rashford. If you're looking for a new striker for your club and a nice investment opportunity, these could be the perfect cards for you.
Will your own Path to Glory involve some of these brand new cards?
For more info on any questions you may have about these new item types, here's a helpful Q&A provided by EA:
Q: What makes Path to Glory special?
A: Path to Glory Contender items dynamically upgrade and can get ratings boosts throughout the season. If you have a Path to Glory Contender item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the player's latest Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero, or Record Breaker in-form items. The better the player performs in real life, the higher their ratings can go.
Q: What is a Live Item?
A: Path to Glory players will be released as Live Items. The ratings on this item type update automatically, whether the item is in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.
Q: When do Path to Glory Contender items get updated?
A: The items get automatically updated when a new Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero, or Record Breaker promotion is released, provided that the player is included.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player is transferred/loaned to a different club?
A: The Path to Glory Player Item attributes and latest in-form rating will be unaffected. However, the player's Path to Glory item will remain at the player's previous club until he gets an applicable in-form item, at which point the player's club, crest, and dynamic image will be updated.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory player changes nationality?
A: The Path to Glory Player Item will be updated with the new nationality as soon as possible.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player is transferred/loaned to a club not in FUT18?

Q: What is the criteria for picking Path to Glory players?
A: Path to Glory contains a selection of players that are contending for spots on their respective national teams.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player's in-form is in a different position to their Path to Glory item?
