Golden Goal rule: get Icon Swaps done quick

If you want to make the most of the Icon Swaps, you’ll need to grind out some Squad Battles or Live Friendlies, which can take a lot of time.

Fortunately, the FIFA community came up with a solution to make the process quicker. The rules are simple: if your opponent scores the opening goal in a game, concede the game. Your rivals should do the same for you. It’s the unwritten code that allows players to rack up the wins at a faster rate.

It was used in the last two Icon Swaps events, and it will probably be used again. However, not everyone is aware of it or will follow the rules, so it’d be a stretch to expect it every game. Still, it should speed things up.
