A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21 celebrating the prolific 2015-2016 Premier League season of former Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny, and we’ve got all the info you need to unlock it as cheaply as possible.

Koscielny suited up for Arsenal from 2010 to 2019, featuring in 255 matches for the Gunners over that time span. This particular SBC recalls his 2015-2016 season, often considered to be one of his best.

Now back home in France playing for Bordeaux, the centerback’s still performing decently, but this Flashback SBC card is a considerable upgrade of the Frenchman’s base stats.

Coming in at an 86 OVR, Koscielny’s Flashback card is a much more attractive option than his regular 79 OVR one. It still features the Bordeaux badge which some of us definitely still aren’t used to, and an 86 defending stat that will be a bit more familiar.

Combine that with and 81 physical and 77 pace, and he’ll be more than capable of plugging a hole in your defensive backline, or simply beefing it up. It’s up to you how to use him once you spend your hard-earned FUT coins, which brings us to what exactly you have to do to grab it.

Is this SBC worth it?

Coming in at around 100k FUT coins, this is definitely one SBC you might have to think about before diving head-first into. If you’re in need of a solid CB or an upgrade in that part of the field, he’s definitely worth a look as this Flashback card is significantly better than his regular gold card.

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.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

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.
