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

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.
