Icon Swaps 3

As previously mentioned, there are nine Icon Swaps tokens currently available to obtain in FUT 21.

The likes of Rio Ferdinand and Patrick Vieira are included in this set of Icon Swaps, but it can take some time to complete all the objectives.

Release Date

Icon Swaps 3 was released in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team on Monday, 10 May.

The release arrived at 1pm ET / 6pm BST alongside the next minor league squad in the Team of the Season event.

Squad Battles

There are four sets of objectives that you will need to complete in Squad Battles, these are:

  • Win 7 Squad Battles matches on minimum World Class difficulty with 11 Silvers players in your starting squad
  • Win 7 Squad Battles matches on minimum World Class difficulty with 11 UCL players in your starting squad
  • Win 7 Squad Battles matches on minimum World Class difficulty with 11 Eredivisie players in your starting squad
  • Win 7 Squad Battles matches on minimum World Class difficulty with 11 Portuguese players in your starting squad

This requires a total of 28 games in Squad Battles which is nearly six hours of game time. However, you can half this by combining two objectives at a time.

UCL Heroes

You will want to combine the UCL and Eredivisie objectives, but it won't be cheap.

As Ajax are the only Eredivisie side in the Champions League it is a squad made up of their players, and we estimate it to cost around 120k coins.

Fortunately, if you complete the objectives quickly enough the resell value should remain high, so you won't lose out too much.

Andre Onana is the most expensive player by far as his value sits at 45k, so keep an eye out for any bargains that could crop up.

Silver Stars

With so few UCL/Portugal options, we recommend combining the Silver and Portugal objectives.

The squad we have selected costs just under 50k, although you can put one together for slightly less if you opt for cheaper strikers.

FAST AS POSSIBLE - We opted for pace in our Silver Portuguese side

Rafael Leao is one of the more expensive options at 10k and there are plenty of options around the 3.5k mark.

With a squad full of Silver Portuguese players, you will halve the number of games required to complete the objectives.
