There’s a brand new Ligue 1 Upgrade SBC (Squad Building Challenge) that’s available to complete in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, and if you want to check it off and grab the rewards, we’ve put everything in one place for you.
The French top flight league has already decided to finish early amid the current global situation, unlike others like the Premier League and Bundesliga that agreed start dates and one has even kicked back into gear.
Following the release of the Ligue 1 Team of the Season So Far (TOTSSF), the new Upgrade SBC is here. Its official description is: “Exchange a squad for 1 of 5 Ligue 1 Rare Gold Players.” So, if you’re interested, let’s run through the deadline, cost, requirements, and solutions for you to be able to check it off fast.
How to complete Ligue 1 Upgrade SBC in FIFA 20
Deadline and requirements
A number of other Ligue 1 SBCs dropped following the TOTSSF announcement, too.
The deadline for this challenge is June 5, and it’s repeatable. So, you can complete it as many times as you want before that date. The full list of requirements to complete it can also be found below, and they’re fairly simple on the whole.
Number of players from Ligue 1: Exactly 11
Rare: Exactly 11
Player Level: Exactly Gold
Team Chemistry: Min 65
Number of players in the Squad: 11
Cost and solution
According to the reliable FUTBIN database, players can complete this challenge for between 30,000 and 34,000 coins.
Now, that might look a little expensive in principle, but with so many different TOTSSF cards available in-game right now, it’s well worth looking into as the rewards might include one or two – depending on how many times you do it.
EA took a slightly different approach this season and opened the voting for Team of the Year on Thursday, January 7 after announcing it the day prior.
With voting previously starting on Jan 7, we still don’t yet know when cards will start entering packs, though we would guess it could occur around the week of January 18, giving players time to vote on who they want to see in TOTY.
Just like last year, the voting process is pretty simple, and it’s just a case of heading to the Team of the Year website. On the website, you will see an empty 4-3-3 template, in which you can fill in your preferred goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders, and attackers.
FIFA 21 TOTY card design
We already know what the TOTY Nominee card design looks like, as revealed in the promotional content above, but what about the Team of the Year cards themselves?
Well, we’ve been given our first look thanks to FUT Watch. This year’s design builds on years past, with a little bit less elegance but definitely a bit more ‘pop’.
With the card back shattered and shards sticking out around the edges, the design is vastly different from FIFA 20. However, it exudes the same flair of a lot of card designs this year.
Although EA love to give lots of opportunities for players to unlock untradeable cards through SBCs and Objectives, don’t expect there to be many for TOTY, since those cards are so high-rated and powerful.
That said, there should be at least one SBC involving this promotion, maybe not for a specific card outright but a pack that guarantees one of the TOTY players. We’ll have more info for you here once the promo kicks off and EA reveals all the details.
What time does TOTY come out FIFA 21?
Currently, there’s no indication as to when TOTY comes out, and 2021 is following a different vein than the early event start of 2020, which started on January 15. We will be sure to update this piece with any further information as it drops, so make sure to check back often.
