A new SBC has hit FIFA 21, with players able to earn themselves a Mid or Prime ICON in exchange for a few squads — but it won’t be cheap.

ICONs are among the best cards in the game. They bring legends of the sport to the forefront, with names like Pele, Cantona and Gullit revisiting their finest form with massively boosted stats.

As such, they’re also the most expensive, so it’s not always possible to simply go and buy one.

That’s where these SBCs come in handy. If you’re looking to hedge your bets and try your luck at a top name, these Mid or Prime Icon SBCs could be perfect. Here’s all the squads you’ll need to create, as well as the cheapest solutions.

  • # of players in the Squad: 11

After completing all of the above, you will earn either a Mid or Prime version of an ICON. Of course, it’s up to you whether you think this is worthwhile.

In total, this SBC will probably set you back around 650k coins, though prices can and will fluctuate while the SBC is live. While you might end up with the likes of Pele or Ronaldo, it’s also possible that you just end up with a 150k Mid ICON Laudrup. A good player, but not quite the bank-buster you’d be hoping for.

Be sure to tweet us at @UltimateTeamUK to show us what you got from the SBC, and let us know whether you think it’s worthwhile.

A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21, with Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Flashbacks are always a fun addition to Ultimate Team, as they let you grab powerful throwback cards for players that take them back to a special moment or a prime time during their career.

This latest standalone SBC celebrates Kroos’s prolific 2017-2018 LaLiga season playing for Real Madrid with a very nice 93 OVR card that could definitely beef up your midfield lineup.

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC requirements & price

There are three total squads all with their own sets of requirements to knock out in order to complete this SBC, and on top of unlocking Kroos’s powered-up card at the end, you’ll also get a pack reward for each set of challenges.

To grab the German midfielder for yourself you’ll need to build one Bundesliga-themed squad, one La Liga-themed one, and finally, a Top Form challenge to wrap it all up.

The catch is that all three require fairly high ratings: 83 for Bundesliga, 84 for La Liga, and 85 for Top Form, which just might be where the high price tag is coming from.

Bundesliga

  • Number of players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: 1 Prime Mixed Players Pack

La Liga

  • Number of players from La Liga Santander: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: 1 Prime Electrum Players Pack

Top Form

  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: 1 Premium Gold Players Pack

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC cost & cheap solutions

Altogether, this SBC should run you around 332,000 to 370,000 FUT Coins to get it all done. Listed below are the cheapest solutions we could find, and to make things as easy as possible none will require any loyalty or position change cards to complete.

La Liga

Top Form


If you want to make Kroos’s powerful new card your own, you have three weeks (21 days) until March 16 to get everything all wrapped up.
