The icons are among the most popular and best cards in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. No wonder, after all, the legends of past soccer eras fit every team in terms of chemistry. The Mid Icon Upgrade SBC has now launched in FUT mode, we have the most affordable SBC solution.

Looking for a way to pair The TOTY card of Joshua Kimmich with Cristiano Ronaldo? Then FUT Icons are your best option. The icons are currently available in a total of three variants: you can now get the middle one as part of the Mid Icon Upgrade SBC.

Is the SBC Worth it?

You have just a few days until February 6 to complete the Mid Icon Upgrade SBC in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. You will have to pay around 600,000 coins for it.

Sounds like a bargain, considering that Pelé is worth 5.8 million coins and Ronaldo is currently worth 8.15 million coins on the transfer market, right?

Well: things are not that simple. The mid icon upgrade SBC is an absolute gamble. Because the mid icon you get for completing it is randomly selected. If you're unlucky, you'll end up with Filippo Inzaghi or Ryan Giggs from the pack, who are only worth a fraction of the coins invested.

Whether the SBC deal is worth it depends entirely on your budget and whether you still have plenty of untradeable players at the club. If you're lucky, you'll get a huge bargain. So if you have a lot of coins at your disposal, the SBC is definitely worth a look.
