There are some hidden gems in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s EFL Championship roster, and the new EFL Championship Squad Foundations promotion makes it easier than ever to snag them. Here’s everything you need to know.

FIFA 21 Ultimate Team has been in full-flight for a while now, and to keep things fresh, EA has been coming up with different challenges and objectives. 

EFL Championship Squad Foundations is one of their latest promotions. It revolves around players completing objectives using EFL Championship players to unlock exclusive player cards.

Here’s a quick look at who they are, and what you need to do to unlock them.

FIFA 21 EFL Championship Squad Foundations player cards

You can earn three player cards from completing the EFL Championship Squad Foundations.

  • Bradley Dack: 82 Overall English CAM for Blackburn Rovers
  • Joshua King: 84 Overall Norweigen CF for Bournemouth
  • Scott Sinclair: 82 Overall English LM for Preston North End

All three player cards would be a welcome addition to any team. No disrespect to Bradley Dack, but Joshua King and Scott Sinclair are particularly desirable due to their exceptional pace.

Of course, no players from the EFL Championship will compare to the best cards in the meta. However, they’re still very good, especially if you’re interested in building an EFL Championship team.

Plus, you can always use them to boost your squad’s bench or finish a tricky high-rated Squad Building Challenge some time in the future.

How to complete the objective

The objective has four different tasks you will need to complete to unlock the players. Here are what they are and how you can complete them.

  • Scoring Streak: Score 15 goals using EFL Championship players in the FUT Live Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 7 EFL Championship players in your starting lineup (rewards 300 XP and Squad Foundations Dack)
  • Assistance Required: Assist 15 using EFL Championship players in the FUT Live Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 7 EFL Championship players in your starting lineup (rewards 300 XP)
  • Playing Time: Play 15 matches in the FUT Live Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 7 EFL Championship players in your starting lineup (rewards 300 XP and Squad Foundations Sinclair)

It’s easy to find the EFL Championship Squad Foundations promotion in the menu.

You can find the EFL Championship Squad Foundations Objective in the Milestones section of the Objectives Menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The objective is now live, so you can start chipping away and get a head start in unlocking those players.

Keep in mind, though, it doesn’t have a time limit, so there’s no need to rush.

How to complete James Tavernier FIFA 21 Headliners SBC: Solutions & cost

EA SPORTS have released a brand new Headliners SBC for an 86-rated version of Rangers defender James Tavernier. So, here’s how you can complete the Squad Building Challenge. 

Headliners have been in FIFA Ultimate Team for a few years, and they work in a similar way to One to Watch cards. If a player who has a Headliners card then gets a new special card which is higher rated, the Headliners version is automatically upgraded.

In FIFA 21, there have been two teams of Headliners released so far, with a few Squad Building Challenges – SBCs – thrown in for good measure too.

The newest SBC centers around Rangers right-back James Tavernier. The 29-year-old defender, who has had two in-forms in Ultimate Team already, has been bumped all the way up to an 86. So, here’s how you can get your hands on him.

James Tavernier Headliners SBC in-game stats & requirements

As you can see above, the boosted stats make Tavernier a pretty decent card to pick up, even if you haven’t built an SPFL or Rangers team. He can seamlessly fit into any team with English defenders, or ICONS, of course.

However, as you might expect, he doesn’t come all that cheap. You’ll have to build two teams to get Tavernier – each containing at least one Team of the Week player.

You can find the requirements for both, below:

England:

  • Number of English players: Min 1
  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75

Top Form:

  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65

James Tavernier Headliners SBC cheapest solutions

Speaking of his actual price tag, according to FUTBIN, the total cost for Headliners Tavernier is between 180-190,000 coins, depending on whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or Origin on PC.

However, to try and get you under that somewhat lofty price tag, we’ve got the cheapest solution for each part of the SBC below.

Now, unlike the Player of the Month SBCs like Bruno Fernandes, you won’t have a full month to get the coins and cards needed to get yourself a Tavernier.

The card is only available in Ultimate Team until January 21, so make sure you act fast. And, let us know how you find Tavernier in-game by tweeting us a review over at UltimateTeamUK.
