Nick Pope FUT Birthday SBC FIFA 20

Burnley’s Nick Pope has been shining brighter than many of the other Premier League goalkeepers during the 2019/20 season, and FIFA 20 Ultimate Team players can now pick up his FUT Birthday special card by completing an SBC.

The in-game event, which celebrates the creation of FUT each year, has already brought a whole host of Squad Building Challenges to the game – most recently for Rodrigo Moreno, Malang Sarr, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and more.

Now, if you thought these previous special cards were good, and maybe a bit out of your price range, wait until you see this ‘keeper. So, let’s run through Pope’s in-game stats, requirements, cost, and solutions – so you can decide if you want to add him to your squad.
