Best Combination Of Rewards

In our opinion, the big value from Icon Swaps Set 2 definitely comes from the pack rewards at the lower end.

With 18 Tokens, you’ll be able to obtain 81+ x25 Pack (2 Tokens), 82+ x25 Pack (3 Tokens), 83+ 25x Pack (5 Tokens) AND a Base Icon Pack (8 Tokens).

With big promotions set to arrive soon in FUT 21, having a number of big packs that could return high rated cards and also promo cards will be very valuable.

If you’re more interested in Icon Packs, the best way to go maybe to select the Prime or Moments Icon Pack for 16 tokens, before finishing off with the 81+ x25 pack for 2 tokens.

The value this offers with Moments Icons also available will be massive, and may drop some incredible rewards!

How To Prepare For FIFA 21 Icon Swap Set 2

It’s clear that a First Owner Requirement has been brought back in for FUT 21, with Icon Swaps Objectives being tailored towards Friendlies with various squad restrictions, i.e. 1 league, so make sure you:

  • Save meta (i.e. useable players in game) from Top 5 Leagues, i.e. Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A & Ligue 1
  • Save meta (i.e. useable players in game) from Popular Nations, i.e. Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium
  • Complete Loan SBCs for usable meta cards from Top 5 Nations & Top 5 Leagues

We've already had objectives involving Serie A, Ligue 1 and La Liga, meaning you should look to stock up with Premier League and Bundesliga players.

You can also expect some of the more obscure leagues such as Eredivisie or MLS to be used as we recently had an objective for the CSL.

We've also had objectives involving Italian and Spanish players, so be sure to keep a few players from other nationalities.

Be sure to also familiarise yourself with the Golden Goal Rule in friendly objectives, as this will make your grind run much quicker and smoother

Due to friendlies not counting towards records or contracts, it makes sense to work together as a community and play a ‘First Goal Wins’ type game, where the person that concedes first quits to let the goalscorer have the win, and get a point towards completing his objective.
