EA SPORTS have revealed the second half of their FUT Birthday promo in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team (FUT), stacked with some high-rated cards that are available now in packs, SBCs, and Objectives.

Launched on March 27, FUT Birthday is the latest promo in FIFA 20 and an annual tradition for Ultimate Team, celebrating the popular mode’s 11th year of existence.

Following the first batch of 15 cards and another several via SBCs and Objectives, EA have rolled out the second set, headlined by a 93-rated Virgil Van Dijk, 92-rated Paul Pogba, 91 Gareth Bale, 91 Angel Di Maria, 90 Lacazette, and more.

The premise of this event is to not only boost certain players’ stats, but also upgrade either their weak foot, skill moves, or both, making cards that were previously unusable much more viable.

Team 2 features 14 cards in total — 11 of them available in packs and another three as untradeables — an 87-rated Malang Sarr, 88 Tiemoue Bakayoko, and 86 Jhon Cordoba.

FUT Birthday Team 2 SBC and Objectives

As mentioned above, there are three untradeable FUT Birthday cards released as part of Team 2, in addition to the 11 that are in packs.

The new squad building challenge, or SBC, will reward you with an 87-rated Malang Sarr, a French centerback who plays for OG Nice and now boasts five-star skill moves and four-star weak foot.

There are also two cards made available by completing the designated Objectives – an 88-rated Bakayoko from Monaco and 86-rated Cordoba from FC Koln.

The French midfielder’s card features a five-star weak foot while the Colombian striker’s skill moves have been upgraded to five-stars, as well.

EA are more than likely to release more themed SBCs throughout the week just as they did for Team 1, rolling out another two after the initial Mesut Ozil squad building challenge.

The release of Team 2 means that FUT Birthday will be going on in FIFA 20 for another full week before it wraps up on Friday, April 10, so you have less than seven days to get all of these done.


How to complete FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

We’ve already seen stars like Erling Haaland receive TOTW cards in FIFA 21, but that doesn’t stop them from getting multiple.

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
