Time is running out, so combining multiple objectives to speed up your play will be more vital than ever.
Find out all the squad combinations to do so below, as well as suggested XI's to use to give you the best chance against the computer.
Latest - Icon Swaps 2 coming soon!
Icon Swaps 2 is set to arrive as soon as Set 1 comes to an end, being released on Monday, 10 January 2021.
The new objectives and SBCs will arrive at approximately 1pm ET / 6pm GMT on the day of release.
If you are yet to attempt the FUT Champions objective, where you will need to win 13 FUT Champions matches, all is not lost.
Qualifying matches count towards the total, and with Weekend League the easiest it's been in years, getting to 13 wins is definitely achievable in just one week.
What are Icon Swaps?
First off, let's give a quick rundown of what the Icon Swaps are and why you need to complete them.
By completing these Icon Swaps objectives you will gain the reward of a card that acts as a token.
If you check the Squad Building Challenges hub, you will notice there are new Icon Swaps in there, where you redeem your tokens to gain rewards.
These rewards vary from packs full of higher-rated players, packs containing random Icon cards or Icon picks, or just a straight swap for a specific Icon.
These objectives let you bring in some of the best cards in the game, without having to spend masses of coins to do so, and rewards players completing objectives, not just competing against each other.
Icon Swaps Leagues
Unfortunately, you cannot combine any of the objectives for the Icon Swaps Serie A, Icon Swaps LaLiga, or Icon Swaps PL objectives.
This is because you need to play in the Live FUT Friendly: One League, which doesn't even let you include additional leagues on the bench.
With many more people playing to the Golden Goal rule now Icon Swaps are out, you should be able to complete these objectives with minimum fuss.
Icon Swaps Combination Squads
EA has been very crafty with the league and nationality combo this year, as you are unable to field a full squad of Argentinians or Brazilians that also play in the Eredivisie.
That means there are only three ways to complete the objectives, playing a minimum of 18 Squad Battles matches.
So long as one of your teams is also made up of 11 first owned players, the combinations are:
- Silver/Eredivise + Argentinian + Brazilian
- Silver/Argentinian + Eredivisie + Brazilian
- Silver/Brazilian + Eredivisie + Argentinian
The choice you go for will depend on what first owned players you have in your club, who will either be all Argentian, Brazilian or play in the Eredivisie.
You may get lucky and find you can triple up on a combination (such as Silver/Brazilian/First Owned), but this won't reduce the number of games you have to play, so doesn't make a difference unless you don't plan on going for all the Icon Swaps.
Then it's up to you to win 13 FUT Champions matches in as little time as possible!
To help you out even further, here are some squad suggestions that you can use to take the computer on in Squad Battles:
We wish you the best of luck!
