FUT Birthday Event here (Happy Birthday, Ultimate Team!), Icon Moments Release there – the FIFA 22 content is currently going through the roof. By the way, Man of the Match cards are dropped every now and then as well... even if most of them are not really playable.

Somewhere in all this turmoil, a new SBC has been released recently. With the Prime Icon upgrade, you can get your hands on some of those tasty Prime Icons – which to be honest should be obvious considering its name. Is it worth it, though? Let's check it out!

Prime Icon Upgrade SBC Summary

Probs, EA Sports, at first glance it seems like the price for the Prime Icon Upgrade Challenge is pretty fair. In FIFA 22 there were already SBCs you should have stayed away from more than five feet... here you go, a small overview of the single steps:

All in all, you'll have to spend about 360K coins to complete the four required teams, which is bearable at this time in the FIFA cycle. For comparison, the first Icon SBC in FIFA 22 also cost about that many coins. We don't really want to think about that, though... back then, if you completed the challenge, you got ripped off 99% of the time. Well, let's stay positive, shall we?
