EA Sports added a new set of Throwback Marquee Matchups to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today that you can complete by accessing the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu.

The Marquee Matchups are weekly challenges themed around real soccer’s key matchups. EA selects some matches and creates SBCs that reward players with tradeable FUT packs.

You’ll have until Wednesday, Aug. 4 to complete four squads: Spartak Moscow vs. Lokomotiv Moscow, Leverkusen vs. FC Bayern, Spurs vs. Everton, and Villarreal CF vs. Barcelona. A new set of Marquee Matchups will be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Each squad requires a different set of conditions to be met aside from the commonly known minimum rating and chemistry, like asking for some players from a specific league or club. Each solution offers a different reward as well, ranging from a gold players pack to a small rare gold players pack.

The Spartak Moscow vs. Lokomotiv Moscow SBC, for example, asks for a 75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, three rare cards, at least three different leagues, a maximum of four players from the same league, and at least one player from both Russia. Those who complete it will be rewarded with a gold players pack.

Here are all of the conditions and rewards for each segment you’ll have to do to complete the Throwback Marquee Matchups SBC:
