The principle of icon swaps is that every FIFA Ultimate Team player can get icons or icon packs. You don't have to put any money into many FIFA Points or the like to play with good Icon players. And also there will be no need to buy FIFA Coins to have icon players in your team.
By completing various tasks, you can earn icon swap players in the seasonal tasks. You collect these until you have the required number for your desired icon.
Since April 24, 2020, the second tasks for the current icon swap selection have been available. The tasks to be completed are very varied. Usually you also meet opponents at Division Rivals who also want to complete these tasks.
There are two different areas in which these tasks can be completed.
Which icon swap task is the best?
- Fut Champions: Win 12 games in Fut Champions
- Club loyal players: Win 5 rivals with 11 first-time players in the starting XI
- World stars: Win 5 rivals games with at least 2 players from Premier League, Ligue 1, Seria A, Bundesliga and LaLiga in your starting XI
- Top 5 Leagues: Win 4 rival games with 9 first-time players in your starting XI
- The Stars and Stripes: Win 5 Squad Battles games (at least difficulty: world class) with 11 US players in the starting XI
- Conmebol: Win 5 Squad Battles games (at least difficulty: world class) with 11 Conmebol players in the starting XI
- EFL Championship: Win 5 Squad Battles games (minimum difficulty: world class) with 11 EFL Championship players in the starting XI
- The team: Win 6 Squad Battles games (minimum difficulty: legend) with 11 Germans in the starting XI
If you have enough icon swap players, you can trade in the squad building challenges on the "Icon Swap" grid for your desired icon or the Prime Icon Pack.
You can get these icons!
- 6 players = Jari Litmanen PIM *
- 7 players = David Trezeguet PIM
- 7 players = Gennaro Gattuso PIM
- 9 players = Michael Laudrup PIM
- 9 players = Carles Puyol PIM
- 9 players = Prime Icon Pack
- 10 players = Marc Overmar's PIM
- 10 players = Ruud Gullit baby icon
- 10 players = Frank Lampard PIM
- 13 players = Paolo Maldini mid-icon
- 15 players = Kaka Prime icon
- 16 players = Kenny Dalglish Mid-Icon
- 16 players = Ian Rush PIM
- 16 players = Dennis Bergkamp PIM
- 18 players = Juan Runan Riquelme PIM
- 19 players = Diego Maradona Mid-Icon
- 19 players = Emmanuel Petit PIM
- 20 players = Fabio Cannavaro PIM
- 21 players = Carlos Alberto PIM
- 21 players = Garrincha Prime Icon
- 23 players = Zinedine Zidane baby icon
These icons are the best!
If you need a defender icon, Paolo Maldini Mid-Icon is the most interesting, with 13 required icon swap players. This card has very strong ingame values. Compared to Fabio Cannavaro, it is the best alternative to this icon swap set.
However, if you are looking for a midfield icon, Emmanuel Petit is the best choice. You can earn it for 19 icon swap players. Petit is an extremely strong all-rounder. It is an enrichment for every club.
However, if you are looking for an offensive icon card, there are only two options that you should draw. The first is Kenny Dalglish Mid-Icon, for which you have to swap 16 icon swap players. The second option is Garrincha for 21 swap players. Kenny Dalglish is a central offensive icon player and is known for his dribbling and final strength. Garrincha, on the other hand, is more of a winger who can convince with his dribbling and speed.
When it comes to making coins in FIFA, a few methods and procedures stand out. So does the Bronze Pack Method or BPM. FIFA Investors prefer this method to the other ways in making FUT Coins.
How does Bronze Pack Method Work in FIFA?
The whole idea of BPM (Bronze Pack Method) is to earn FIFA Coins via buying Bronze FUT Packs, opening the packs on the right time, and selling the players inside them with their BIN price or higher at the right time when the profit you make is likely to be higher. The coins you make this way are not very much. But if you keep doing that over a long course of time, you will make a fortune out of FIFA Ultimate Team.
Best Practices in Bronze Pack Opening Method
While opening FUT packs, there are a couple of options that you may encounter and some of the options will make more coins for you if you pay attention. Below, we will share small details that we have learned through experience so you can make more profit in your investment in FIFA.
Tip: WhatsGaming shares knowledge with other gamers via its Blog such as this article about "Bronze Pack Method in FIFA". If you find this blog useful, give us some credit in your social media such as Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, etc. You can share this article by clicking on the social buttons at the bottom.
Which Type of Bronze Pack to Open?
When you are about to buy a Bronze Pack for BPM and making FIFA 21 Coins, you'll have two options:
- Regular FUT Bronze Pack
- Premium FUT Bronze Pack
The regular bronze pack costs 400 FUT Coins and the premium bronze pack is bought with 750 FIFA coins. Now, the question is, which one is better for FIFA Investment?
Both types of bronze packs have the same number of players in them. The only difference is that the premium pack gives you three rare cards instead of one. Now, if you get lucky and win a few bronze players that sell really good, that would be great, but in practice, the only players that sell really good (up to twice the pack's price) are fitness cards, so in general it's recommended to go with the normal bronze pack which costs 400 FIFA Coins.
Other types of bronze packs include FIFA consumables such as:
- Contract Cards
- Fitness Cards
- Healing Cards
- Training Cards
- Club items such as stadiums, balls and kits (non-consumables)
Each of these types of cards can be expected from those bronze packs (regular / premium) and it's good to know what to do with each one of them to get the most out of BPM.
The contract cards will increase the number of matches a player or a manager can play. You may know that each player or manager has a limited number of plays that you can use to play FIFA with. When this number runs out, you will need contract cards to add the number of matches. The contract cards can be applied at any time and their effect will stay on the player until they play and their contract runs out again.
Just keep in mind that loan items cannot be extended by contract cards, and contract cards usually add 8~28 matches depending on the player's card (bronze / silver / gold / rare / non-rare)
Fitness cards are similarly applied to the players for boosting their skills before a match. They last one match only. So, if a player is down his usual numbers before a match, you can apply a fitness card to him so the rating goes up and he performs well. The fitness card will be useless after applying to a player. There is also another type of fitness card that applies to the whole team (23 players including the reserves).
If a player has an injury, fitness cards will not do any good to him. You will need to apply healing cards. Those healing cards reduce the waiting time by 4-5 matches and are two types: the healing card for specific injuries (like foot, arm, etc.) or an overall healing card that heals the injured player no matter what the type of injury is.
What to do with Cards in FIFA Bronze Pack Method
It's crucial to the FUT Pack investors to know when to open the packs and what to do with the cards after they acquire bronze packs.
Here's the deal:
If you get consumables, you apply them to the players.
If the new cards are from the top 5 leagues (Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga, etc.), you should wait until an SBC is active. By waiting till SBC the value of the pack's items will go up and you will make more FIFA Coins. When the SBC is on, sell items or use the players in SBC.
If your cards are from other leagues, if the SBC is on, sell the players on Transfer Market or use them in the Squad Building Challenge. If there is no SBC available, you must check their prices. If it's good, sell them, if not, keep them for now.
What happens if your cards are from top nations?
If the card you opened from the bronze pack is from top nations (Belgium, France, Brazil, England, Uruguay, Croatia, ...), just sell the cards! If it's from Netherlands, you will make a lot of FUT Coins from it!
If the card belongs to other nations, just keep the cards (don't sell them).
How much should I sell the fitness cards?
If the fitness card applies to one player, sell it at 200 FUT Coins. If it's applied to the whole squad, you can sell it 700 to 1200 FIFA Coins (depending on which day of the week it is and if there are active promos on).
How much should I sell bronze pack Training Cards?
The training cards are good for boosting skills of a player. The training card can be applied to only one of the player's attributes or all of them. It doesn't work selectively. And the effect will last one match only. You can't apply more than one training card to one player, ie. it doesn't accumulate.
Now if you have a training card that applies to the player's attributes, you can sell it at 200 coins. Or maybe keep it for your matches. Selling all training cards is tricky as they need a few rounds of bidding sometimes. Other training cards can be quick-sold or kept for the squad.
What to do with Duplicates?
There's a dispute about duplicates. Some people believe it's best to use them in Silver upgrade SBC's. There you will have better chance to sell them or use them in your team. It's recommended to send the duplicate card to TL (Transfer List) and use the one you have in the upgrade SBC. When the card is upgraded, send it back to your club. But the problem is that since it requires lots of efforts, most gamers prefer to sell the duplicates.
But if the duplicate card is from top 5 leagues it's really profitable to sell them (if there is an active SBC). If there is no active SBC then you can keep them waiting on the transfer list. If the cards are from other leagues you can sell or keep in TL and for other leagues you can do a quicksell.
Alternative to Making FIFA Coins
One might find it very difficult or time consuming to make FIFA Coins through Bronze FUT Packs. It is even harder if you want to do it through playing SBC's. Fortunately, you can easily buy FIFA Coins without getting banned by EA if you do it wisely and with a well experienced website like WhatsGaming. With WG you are in good hands and your account will be safe all the time you buy FUT 21 Coins.

Good luck and happy hunting FIFA Coins!
Despite some concerns about the global pandemic that is going on, the new FIFA (FIFA 21) is around the corner and will be available to be bought by the end users on October 6th 2020. We have answered lots of questions about FIFA 21, regarding its gameplay, new features, comparison with FIFA 20 or PES 2021 and so on.
Just like previous versions, FIFA 21 Coins will be required to buy players from Transfer Market, and you can as always buy FIFA Coins from WhatsGaming, which has been a dedicated coin supplier in the past couple of years with so many happy gamers.
Now that the gamers are in dire need of FUT 21 Coins, it could occur to you if it's ever possible to transfer FIFA Points or FIFA Coins from FIFA 20 to FIFA 21.
Are FIFA Points / FIFA Coins Transferable Through FIFA Versions?
Here's your answer: You can't transfer FIFA Coins from FIFA 20 to FIFA 21. However, you can transfer FIFA Points from FIFA 20 to FIFA 21, but in order to do that, you should log in to your console. It can only be done through your gaming console, not through web app or companion app. And it's not possible to transfer to another console. So, if you have a PS4, then you can't transfer to an Xbox.
Moreover, you can't transfer FUT Points to previous version(s). If you have points on FIFA 21, you can't send to FIFA 20.
Can I buy FIFA 21 Coins?
Of course you can buy FIFA 21 Coins from WhatsGaming like previous years, but you have to wait until FIFA 21 is officially launched. We will offer cheap FIFA 21 Coins to help eager gamers unlock more features and add great players to their squad.
There are two transfer methods for buying FUT 21 Coins:
- Player Auction
- Comfort Trade
Each of these transfer methods have their own pros and cons. So, you should read about them carefully before paying for FUT Coins. We have explained player auction and comfort trade in details in our services and blog posts.
Literally, you will be able to buy FIFA 21 Coins by paying a reliable FUT Coin seller like WhatsGaming and sell players to the site via Transfer Market and collect FIFA 21 Coins in return. The amount of FUT 21 Coins you'll receive will be the same amount you paid for. That's how Player Auction works, but there are risks in transferring FUT Coins if the 3rd party site doesn't know how to do it. Luckily, WhatsGaming with a couple of years of experience knows the limits and red lines of EA. The platform is fully automated and the methods are applied carefully within EA's guidelines, so you will receive your coins instantly and safely.
Headliners are one of those cards that upgrade throughout the season based on the player's real-life performance and therefore when you want to buy FIFA Coins to pay for those cards, you will have to check their latest price in case there has been a recent update.
How do FIFA Headliners Upgrade?
Two teams will be introduced each year as the FIFA Headliners. The initial stats and OVR for each of these cards are already boosted, and yet every time the player appears on TOTW, MOTM, TOTGS, etc., the Headliners cards will get an upgrade as well.
And that's why their prices and ratings are higher than for example OTW cards. If you're wondering how do the Headliner cards look like, well the upper side has an amber-ish color and the base is purple as you can see below:
When is Headliners selected?
Usually, in mid-January two teams are selected. In order to obtain the Headliners cards, you need to get the players right after they're available via FUT Packs, and you can earn those packs by completing a few series of SBCs related to Headliners.

Players who are new to FIFA or just have started to use Web App and Companion Apps, may come across such error on the App: no access to the Transfer Market. This is preventing you from buying and selling items, eg. players, consumables, etc. on the market. This issue could happen even if player's never have been banned or faced restrictions. It could be really annoying since it stunts your progress when you try to trade and get a team!
The Transfer Market is available in the game, though, since the beginning. That means, you can pay with FIFA Coins or FUT Points and buy players from the market on your console. But however, you can't use the market on CompanionApp or WebApp.
Why Transfer Market Should Be Unlocked?
It gets important when you're trying to buy FIFA coins, because the preferred transfer method is Comfort Trade, and it requires WebApp to be unlocked. You can't buy any FIFA Coins if you don't have a working market on WebApp, unless you use Player Auction, which is more complicated and you may not be comfortable with it, as it requires some practice.
So, if you're one of those enthusiast FUT traders, or if you need some coins to put in your FIFA account simply because you're frustrated with playing and earning the coins slowly, and you want to form your dream squad that has Mbappe, Ronaldo, Messi, and hopefully some amazing old-timer Icons, you may be interested in gaining access for transfer market on WebApp so you can buy Fut coins and beat those opponents in Squad Battles.
What is FIFA Transfer Market INDEED?
FUT Transfer Market, is a virtual place where players can buy and/or sell their tradable items, like Players, Cards, Club items, etc. based on auctions. You can find many player cards on this market and increase your teams' Overall Chemistry Rating. You can set various filters to find your ideal footballer; for example, you can search by Players' Names, League, Nationality, Chemistry Style, Position, Quality, etc.
The Transfer Market can be easily located under the Transfer Options on the FUT Hub Home screen.
The Web App or Companion Apps' Transfer Market works the same, but if you can't perform any actions and you keep seeing this message, then you need to follow a few simple steps in order to unlock this feature on your app.
How to fix the Transfer Market issue on the Web App
Basically, playing FIFA for 2-3 weeks should unlock transfer market and remove the restriction. You can find the official article from EA in this page that gives you general information about how to lift the restriction and gain transfer market access on WebApp and CompanionApp. But some times, no matter how long you play the game, it just does not get unlocked.
Then, the first thing is to realize if you have been transferred banned in the past, especially if you have been permabanned from the Transfer Market with your current active account. Sometimes the agents refuse to give you access to use the Transfer Market and the reasons are unknown. Probably some restrictions or warnings regarding your disobeying the FIFA rules, or the number of your actively participating days in FIFA Ultimate Team may have caused this warning. Another possibility is that you didn't play FIFA on the same console or simply used two different accounts for playing the game and using the Web App. So if you are in the current situation, as far as we are concerned, you can try your luck and follow these steps to see if you can unlock the feature successfully.
First thing is that you should have logged into your FIFA account on October 17th to be able to use the Web App. Even if you hadn't purchased the game at that time, you could have used your friends' account to log in, if they do use the same console as you do. Now follow these steps:
- First, log into your account which is linked to your game at this address: https://help.ea.com/en/eadp_check/login/
- After logging in successfully, head back to the home page at: https://help.ea.com/en/
- Click on "Contact Us"
- It will direct you to a new page where you can select your game, which is FIFA.
- Next, you can see a list of platforms that support FIFA, you need to select your console which is linked to your FIFA account.
- By default, it will recognize your platform, but you can change it if it's wrong.
- At the bottom, you need to select a topic, which in this case is "Manage my account".
- Next, you need to select an issue for your topic, so select "Transfer Market Access".
- This will show you a new page where you can email EA Sports and politely ask them to remove the Transfer Market limitations and give you access.
Tip 1: If you want to talk to EA Sports directly and don't want to wait too long for the results, you can actually repeat the above steps, but instead of choosing Manage my account as your topic, choose "Missing Content" and then select "Never received content" as your issues. This will direct you to a live chat and talk to them about your issue.
Tip 2: Depending on your account's status, it could take a while to be able to access the Transfer Market. They will send you an in-game message when you log into your account regarding your demand, and you can check the Web App to see if you can use the Market or not. The best thing to do is hit different game modes, spend time on the FUT and use the Transfer Market on your console. Check back on the Web App every now and then and the access will automatically get unlocked for you.
We hope these methods help you to get back to the Transfer Market and start trading some FUT coins soon! If you need more help in order to make more coins in FIFA, you can read the rest of the blog or simply buy FIFA coins using our current discount codes to get 10% OFF of your orders.
