EA Sports has released another trio of new ICON cards for FIFA 21 including one for legendary Brazilian midfielder Kaka, and we have all the info you need to unlock it quickly and without breaking the bank (too badly).

Kaka is widely considered one of the best Brazilian players of his generation, winning the Balloon d’Or in 2007, consecutive World Cups with Brazil in 2006 and 2010, along with plenty more accolades and awards.

You could write an entire article on his accomplishments alone, but that’s not why we’re here. We’re here for his brand new Prime ICON SBC that came out on January 9.

So, let’s take a look at the stats, requirements, solutions and how much it will set you back. There is also a 5-match loan version available too, so if you don’t want to go all-in right away we’ll go over that as well.

Kaka Prime ICON SBC in-game stats

In-game stats for Kaka’s Prime ICON card.

As you would expect from the highest level of ICON cards, Kaka is an absolute beast, coming in at 91 OVR, a four-point increase from his 87 Base Icon card. Shooting is jacked up to 86 from just 80, and Passing is now 88 up from 83.

Pace gets moved by three points up to 91, and Dribbling also sees a slight increase to 92 up from 90. If you’re looking for a top-tier Brazilian CAM, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Kaka Prime ICON SBC price & requirements

No surprise here, for a card with such a great stat line it also comes with a hefty price tag as well, ringing in at around 1.35 million to 1.78 million FUT Coins, depending on which platform you prefer to play on.

If you’ve played Ultimate Team at all you’ll know that this high price tag means a lot of requirements, and as we’ve seen from Prime Icons before there are nine separate ones to complete, but you do also get a pack reward for each one as well in addition to Kaka’s Prime ICON at the end.

Kaka Prime ICON 5-game loan requirements & solution

There is only one requirement for Kaka’s 5-game loan card, and it will cost you around 11,000 to 13,000 FUT Coins to complete depending on your platform.

If you’re not ready to take on the full SBC right away, this is a great way to try out the Brazilian player at a fraction of the price and effort. The requirements and solution are listed below:

Kaka [Loan]

  • Number of players from Brazil: Min 1
  • Rare: Min 5
  • Squad Rating: Min 81
  • Team Chemistry: Min 85
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Kaka [Loan] solution


If this seems like an overwhelming amount of work to pull off for just one card, don’t panic too much as you have two months until Saturday, March 6 to get them all done. You also have the same amount of time to do the Loan SBC. That won’t make it any cheaper, but you won’t have to rush yourself, at least.

As per usual, be sure to follow us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK for all the latest ICON SBCs and more FIFA 21 updates, and if you do unlock Kaka, let us know how he does for you with a clip of him in action!

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.
