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 85 OVR or 86 OVR card in SBCs that require a lower-rated squad, such as an 82 or 83 squad rating, as it can significantly bump up the overall rating of the squad.
