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 Wednesday, June 16 to complete four squads: Italy vs. Australia, Switzerland vs. Ukraine, Argentina vs. Mexico, and Germany vs. Sweden. A new set of Marquee Matchups will be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Each squad requires a different set of conditions to meet 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 Italy vs. Australia SBC, for example, asks for a 75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, one rare card, a maximum of five nationalities, and at least one player from both Italy and Australia. Those who complete it will be rewarded with a gold player pack.

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