As we draw to the end of the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team season the Squad Building Challenges are requiring higher and higher-rated fodder in order to unlock some fantastic new players.

With minimum requirements of an 88-rated squad or higher more prevalent, you will need to know who the cheapest 90-rated players are in the game.

There will be plenty more SBCs to unlock as we see out the season, so take a look at the cheapest 90-rated players available in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team below.

Cheapest 90-Rated Players

There are only six 90-rated gold cards in FUT 23, so it is important to keep track of special items to find some bargains here.

Half of the base gold 90-rated players reside in the Premier League, so if you are also needing to hit a certain chemistry requirement then the trio of Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo could work well.

Man of the Match items can often feature in the cheapest 90-rated players in Ultimate Team, with a couple of Icons sneaking in too!

You will need to spend just under 40,000 coins on PlayStation and Xbox to pick up the cheapest 90-rated players on the market, but a few 91-rated players can also feature for that price, so bear that in mind before making a purchase.

An SBC - or Squad Building Challenge - is one of the playable game modes within Ultimate Team.

You are tasked with building teams using players from your club, but with specific requirements.

SBC requirements regularly include a minimum overall squad rating amongst other things.

So, in order to hit the minimum squad rating, you will need 'SBC fodder'.

SBC fodder refers to high-rated cards that are cheap in price due to either their on-pitch performance or their underrated value in the market but are useful in SBCs because of their high OVR rating.

In many cases, it can be more economical to include an 88 OVR or 89 OVR card in SBCs that require a lower-rated squad, such as an 85 or 86 squad rating, as it can significantly bump up the overall rating of the squad.
