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 some tradeable FUT packs. For the Throwback version, EA selected four matchups featuring nations from international matchups that already took place. The company didn’t specify what tournament these matches are from nor when the games happened.

You’ll have until next Wednesday, June 30, to complete four squads as always: Costa Rica vs. Greece, France vs. Nigeria, Argentina vs. Switzerland, and Brazil vs. Chile. A new set of Marquee Matchups will then 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 premium rare gold players pack.

The Costa Rica vs. Greece SBC, for example, asks for a 75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, two rare cards, a maximum of six different clubs, and at least one player from both Costa Rica and Greece. Those who complete it will be rewarded with a gold player pack.

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

EA will also grant you a mega pack as a reward for completing all four SBCs. You’ll spend around 33,000 to 36,000 FUT coins in total for every segment’s building price, which isn’t much to get tradable cards through the packs, even if you build all the SBCs from scratch.
