EA Sports introduced a new 87+ Upgrade x10 squad-building challenge (SBC) to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today that will reward players who complete it with 10 87-rated or higher cards that are available in FUT packs right now.

This SBC comes as a great opportunity to pack some of the 200 special cards that were reintroduced to FUT packs last week. The selection includes cards from Team of the Year (TOTY), Team of the Season (TOTS), Path to Glory, and Summer Stars promotions, the four best promos in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. This could be your chance to pack Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi’s 99-rated cards, for example.

But, as always, there’s also a chance that this loot box gives you awful items that will just serve as fodder instead of making it into your Ultimate Team. This is a repeatable SBC that will be live for six days, which means you can complete it as many times you want until it expires.

You’ll have to complete five segments to obtain your Aug. 18’s 87+ Upgrade x10 pack and you’ll earn a tradeable pack for each squad you turn in, which helps to decrease the total cost of the SBC. The most expensive squad you’ll have to turn in is an 84-rated one, which costs around 70,000 FUT coins on PlayStation and Xbox and 90,000 FUT coins on PC at the moment.

Here are all the segments that you need to complete to complete the new 87+ Upgrade x10 SBC.
