What are ICON Swaps

ICON Swaps are a set of long-term objectives released by EA on FIFA Ultimate Team.

Each completed objective will reward you with an 'ICON Swap Token Player'. These are low value, untradeable players and are only useful for using in ICON Swaps.

These tokens can then be used to trade in for rewards, which are either packs or ICON players.

As no coins are necessary, this is the most affordable way of adding ICONs into your FUT squad.

Golden Goal

Some of the objectives in ICON Swaps can be a bit of a grind.

However, the FUT community stepped in with their unwritten 'Golden Goal' rule.

By helping each other out, this community rule helped players earn those valuable tokens without having to grind through hours of FUT Friendlies.
