EA Sports have released a new Mid Icon Upgrade SBC in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team (FUT), and we’ve got the overall cost, cheapest solutions, and everything else you need to know to complete it.

Icons are among the most powerful types of cards in FIFA 20, but with how expensive the good ones are, they can be hard for the average player to afford for their squad.

Luckily, EA have made a conscious effort to increase their availability within FUT, and this new Mid Icon Upgrade SBC, released on March 20, is the latest phase of that.

This challenge is available in the SBC menu of FUT, right before the Jari Litmanen and the rest of the third Swaps set.

From the start, it was made available for 27 days, meaning that it will expire on Wednesday, April 16. However, it’s important to note that this is repeatable, so you can go for it as many times as you can handle.

Your reward? You will get the second-tier version of any of these Icons, chosen randomly, so there’s the chance you can get someone huge.

FIFA 20 FUT Mid Icon Upgrade SBC requirements

As you’d expect, this Mid Icon Upgrade SBC requires several high-rated squads to complete – two 85-rated teams and an 88-rated one. Upon completion, each of these will also reward you with a Two Rare Gold Player Pack, so there’s always the chance you could pull something valuable from those as well.

Cheapest solutions and total cost

This is not a cheap SBC to complete by any stretch of the imagination, especially if you don’t have too many high-rated cards in your club to plug in straightaway.

FIFA database website ‘FUTBIN’ estimates that the current cost for this is 629,000 on PS4, 524,000 on Xbox One, and 514,000 on Origin.

Here is the current cheapest solution for the first 85-rated squad portion, which costs about 93,800 on PS4, 99,850 on Xbox One, and 93,400 on Origin.

Last, but certainly not least, here is the current cheapest solution for the 88-rated squad portion, which costs about 413,650 on PS4, 365,300 on Xbox One, and 397,300 on Origin.

None of these solutions require any position change cards or extra loyalty, so you’ll be able to plug in their stock versions right into the SBC.

Keep in mind, of course, that the FUT market is always volatile and prices of cards often fluctuate, so the cost to build these specific squads could change over time.

Is this Mid Icon Upgrade SBC worth doing?

With these Icon SBCs, it’s often a balancing act when trying to decide if they’re worth plugging in the coins or not. Dreams of getting a Gullit or Ronaldo often result in a Trezeguet or Nakata, so don’t go into it expecting a top-tier card.

Our recommendation is to first try the Prime Icon pack you get via the Icon Swaps, which costs nine tokens and is not hard or too time-consuming to get. What you get through that will help clarify the decision of whether you should do this SBC.

However, if you have a lot of high-rated cards in your club that are untradeable and you’re never going to use, you might as well roll the dice, especially if you can lower the cost by half or more.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
