EA Sports added a new set of Marquee Matchups to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team today that you can complete by accessing the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu.
The Marquee Matchups are weekly challenges based on real soccer’s key games. EA selects some matches and creates SBCs to reward players with tradeable FUT packs. This week, it’s themed around countries from the Americas.
This type of SBC is different from the special player items. Each squad requires a different set of conditions to be met aside from the commonly known minimum rating and chemistry. An example is asking for some players from a specific league or club.
Each solution offers a different reward as well, ranging from a small prime mixed players pack to a prime electrum players pack. You’ll have until next Thursday, Feb. 3 to complete four squads: Canada vs. USA, Mexico vs. Costa Rica, Chile vs. Argentina, and Brazil vs. Paraguay.
The Mexico vs. Costa Rica squad, for example, asks for a series of conditions to be met. You’ll need to turn in a 75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, a maximum of five players from the same league, at least three players from the same club, two different nationalities, and one player from both Mexico and Costa Rica. Those who complete it will be rewarded with a small prime gold players pack.
Here are all of this week’s conditions and rewards for each solution you’ll have to do to complete this Marquee Matchups SBC.
|Canada vs. USA||73-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum plus two rare cards, a maximum of four different leagues, at least three different nationalities, and one player from both Canada and the U.S.||Mixed players pack|
|Mexico vs. Costa Rica||75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, a maximum of five players from the same league, at least three players from the same club, two different nationalities, and one player from both Mexico and Costa Rica.||Small prime gold players pack|
|Chile vs. Argentina||77-rated squad with 80 chemistry minimum, at least one rare card, three different leagues, four players from the same nation, and two players from both Chile and Argentina.||Jumbo premium gold players pack|
|Brazil vs. Paraguay||79-rated squad with 85 chemistry minimum, at least one rare card, four leagues, a maximum of three players from the same club, and a minimum of two players from both Brazil and Paraguay.||Prime electrum players pack|
EA will also grant you a mega pack as a reward for completing all four SBCs. You’ll spend around 21,300 to 22,700 FUT coins in total for every segment, even if you build all of the SBCs from scratch.
