Showdown Items Explained

FIFA 23 Showdown SBCs are a simple but clever concept, that relies on real-world footballing fixtures and results to determine upgrades to cards.

Firstly, two cards are released as Showdown SBCs for a limited time for an upcoming fixture, usually pitting two relatively equally matched teams against each other that have an interesting or important fixture coming up.

FUT players can then ‘bet’ on which team they think will win the fixture by completing the corresponding card's SBC in the hope of a further upgrade.

Once the SBC expires and the game is played, the Showdown SBC cards receive upgrades based on the result of the fixture.

For the team that wins the fixture, the corresponding Showdown SBC card in-game will receive a +2 OVR Upgrade, while the card from the team that lost the match will remain the same rating.

If the fixture results in a draw, then both cards will receive a +1 OVR Upgrade.
