EA Sports introduced 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 usually are weekly challenges themed around real soccer’s key matchups. EA selects some of the most exciting soccer matches and creates SBCs that reward players with some tradeable FUT packs. For the Throwback version, EA normally selects four matchups that already took place. EA doesn’t specify what tournament these matches are from or when the games happened.

This week’s Throwback Marquee Matchups are Guangzhou Evergrande vs. Guangzhou R&F, Napoli vs. Internazionale, Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. Borussia Dortmund, and Manchester United vs. Manchester City. After this set expires in a week, a new set of matchups will be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Each squad requires a different set of conditions such as rating, chemistry, and types of cards, like asking for some players from a specific league or club. Usually, the most expensive segment will offer the most expensive reward.

The Manchester derby segment is the most expensive one as it requires an 81-rated squad with some conditions. It’ll reward you with a premium gold players pack. Once you complete all four segments, you’ll receive a jumbo premium gold players pack as your final reward.

Here are all of the conditions and rewards for each of the segments you’ll have to do to complete the Aug. 5 Throwback Marquee Matchups SBC:
