ICONs are hard to come by on Ultimate Team, but we should be about to see the return of ICON SBCs on FIFA 21.

Find out more about the highly anticipated SBCs below.

Release Date

We know that ICON SBCs are coming soon, but their exact release date is yet to be revealed.

Could we see them released as part of FIFA 21 Season 2 on Friday, 20 November?

The Season 2 release may be too soon, but with Black Friday next week there is plenty to get excited about.

We have seen ICON SBCs before. They are always popular with the FIFA community as it gives FUT players the chance to earn a high-rated ICON player!

As these cards are so rare (and expensive), this is the best chance you will get to add an ICON player to your squad.

What we do know is that the ICON SBCs won’t be permanent, although they will give you plenty of time to complete them.

The players included will already be in packs too, so don’t expect anyone new just yet.

David Beckham

Every FUT player has the opportunity to earn a free David Beckham card, but could his ICON card become an SBC challenge?

After signing a multi-year ambassadorial agreement, Beckham is currently the cover star for the game!
