FIFA 21: 86+ Upgrade SBC Cheapest Solution For Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X, PS5 And PC

Upgrade time!

A new SBC has been added in FIFA 21's Ultimate Team as part of the FUT Headliners promo!

EA's new SBC will reward players with a new, untradable, card that has a minimum rating of 86.

Let's take a look at the best solution.

Dates

The SBC went live on the 13th January at 6pm GMT.

It will expire on the 20th January at 5.59pm GMT.

Requirements

  • 84 rated team
  • 70 chemistry
  • 11 players in the squad

Cheapest Solution

This SBC will cost roughly 75,000-85,000 coins.

  • GK - 84 SIRIGU
  • LB - 82 GOSENS
  • CB - 85 BONUCCI
  • CB - 83 PAU LOPEZ
  • RB - 83 STRAKOSHA
  • LM - 82 PERISIC
  • CM - 82 RAMSEY
  • CM - 82 DANILO PEREIRA
  • RM - 86 VERRATTI
  • ST - 83 IBRAHIMOVIC
  • ST - 85 ICARDI

Solution Tips

The Chinese League has plenty of cheap 83 rated players that can get strong links with each other.

You should also consider the Portuguese league for some 83 and 84 rated players.

If you invest in an 85 or 86 rated card, you could find this SBC reduces in cost significantly as you can use 82 and 81 rated players instead.

If you haven't done, try completing some of the smaller SBCs like 'Headliners Challenge', 'Marquee Matchups' or 'New Years Challenge' to get a few extra 83 and 84 cards.

Review

I don't think so. These SBCs rarely payout with a good player and cost a lot of coins.

There's a number of 86+ rated players that aren't fantastic either that you could potentially pull.

But if you have a lot of fodder in your club, it could be worth a punt for a more worthwhile SBC down the line.
