Icon Swap players in FIFA icons
Fifa Coins

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?

Online tasks

  • 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


Offline tasks

  • 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!

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.

FIFA 21 Official Trailer, Pre-Order & Release Date
Fifa Coins

Yesterday, EA Sports posted the first official video of the long-anticipated FIFA video game, FIFA 21.

The trailer goes on describing the new features that FIFA 21 is bringing for the gamers as well as lots of recorded videos of players scoring in FIFA 21. In this article, we will share details about FIFA 21, how to get the most out of it, how it boost your FUT 21 Coin earnings and so on.


The Most Social FIFA Game Ever!

The first thing you will notice about FIFA 21 is how social interactivity comes into play in the new series of FIFA. The new feature called FUT Co-Op is how EA engages gamers to cooperate in winning games in FUT and receive boosted shared coins as their reward. You can play alone in FUT or you can invite a friend and win together in Division Rivals and the result will be somewhat boosted Fut 21 coins for both of you.

In Co-Op mode in FIFA21, you will have three options: to play Co-op, to assist in Co-op and to play Co-op Rivals. After winning in any of these three modes, you will receive a group rewards which is much better than playing solo.

Another social aspect of FIFA 21 is FUT Events. It's meant to take cooperation into global level. The first thing you need to do is to use Social Media hashtags to promote your team, something like #TeamRashford. And then play in FUT with global gamers joined with you. As a result, club items, FUT 21 packs and coins will be unlocked in FUT Events mode. The community events will bring much bigger shared rewards for each of the globally joined gamers.



When great things happen in real-life Football leagues, such as, great scores, extraordinary free kicks on goal, great saves by the defenders or the goalies, these happenings will be reflected in FIFA 21 as Meaningful Moments and as a result, the FUT 21 cards will receive a skill boost based on that real-life event.

So, for example a great tackle the blows everyone's mind will have an increased tackling skill for that player in FIFA 21.



If you open the Division Rivals and play the Squad Battles, you will be able to find out your skill level through AI. instead of waiting for rank qualifiers who do it manually. So, if your rank is III, IV, V, etc., it will be known in with improvements of Core FUT Mode enabled which makes your game even more rewarding that before.

And if you're up to try something new in FIFA 21, you can choose Live FUT friendly matches, where house rules & squad rules will join to enable diverse matches for you through the whole season.



This section makes really big changes and customization to your stadium possible. With the new FIFA 21 FUT Stadium you will be able to choose the team's cheering style, trophies, welcome music and so on. Change everything you like to make it feel right at home! And the good thing is that your options get better and more advanced in customizing stadiums once your team improves and wins more in FUT.



EA has outdone itself in the 100 FUT icons in FIFA 21! With the upgraded look of football history's superstars such as Pele, Maldini, Cruyff, Eto-o, Ronaldo and many more, you can now work hard to earn the FUT 21 Coins required to buy those great players in your team. With the new technology advancement in PS5 and Xbox Series X, you'll sure have much more fun playing with those icons in your squad, as the movements the graphics & visual effects are much more realistic in FIFA 21.

Fifa Coins

The new release of FIFA, i.e. FIFA 21 comes with a lot of hot new features that makes playing FIFA a fun and adventurous experience. One of the features that requires more than one player is called Co-Op mode. Without having teammates, FIFA may look a bit boring, because you'd have to play lots of games alone.


What is Co-Op in FIFA 21?

Co-Op is EA's new way of getting gamers together by choosing a teammate and playing online or even offline games together. Basically, you will be the captain and you can visit the Co-Op mode. To get to the Co-Op lobby, you will have to pick a partner to play with. All you have to do is to add a username and they will be added as your assistant. Then, you as the captain will choose what to do. You can play Squad Battles, Division Rivals, or Friendly matches. Either one you choose, you will be playing the game and when it's done, the amount of FIFA 21 Coins you will receive will be boosted. This way you can earn FUT 21 coins faster than playing alone.

FIFA 21 Coop Mode

Here are a few questions and answers about Co-Op:

  • Q: How many teammates can I add?
    A: You can add up to three team mates. It means you can play the games as four teammates including you.
  • Q: How to add new friends in Co-op?
    A: Press R2 / RT, after that you should choose your assistant and then you'll see the Co-Op lobby where you can choose the type of game you want to play together.
  • Q: Can the teammate choose what type of game to play?
  • A: No. Only the captain can pick the game mode and once the teammates are ready, the game than begin.

Improve Skills in FIFA 21 to Make More FUT Coins!
Fifa Coins

Ever since FIFA 21 was released, it gained popularity and the number of gamers rose day by day. By the end of November 2020, there was around 12 million PS4 players playing FIFA 21, as gamstat.com states.

Now, having played the game, you'd want to get the most out of it just to save up some time making progress with the game. You may want to choose the best formation for your team, or just find the top 5 star teams to choose from. You may not be very successful at it whether you're new to FIFA or you're just trying FIFA 21 from previous versions. In this article, we'll share some techniques that will improve your playing and will allow you win more and earn FUT 21 Coins more than before.


Improvements of FIFA 21 compared to FIFA 20

To have a quick comparison between FIFA 20 and 21, it's good to note that FIFA 21 is improved in many ways, from gameplay, to visual effects, more realistic behavior of players, etc. With the recent release of FIFA 21 for Next Gen consoles, it takes the joy of playing football to another level. Some reviews of course claim that the new features aren't much in FIFA 21, compared to FIFA 20 and they say the new game is very similar to the previous version.

But players sure love it and the new features in FIFA 21 like in Career Mode, you can now simulate the game before it takes place and if the results don't go as you expected, you can play the game manually. Also the new story named Debut in Volta mode and Squad Battles are something new in FIFA 21, as well as new skill moves and the improvements in AI to make it more realistic.


How to improve your skills in FIFA 21?

Practicing the following will improve your skills in FIFA 21:

Try different formations

You may be comfortable with one formation from FIFA 20 and always choose that for your team against all opponents, but that's not helpful. Trying new formations will help you improve your skills in defence, midfield and attack.

Some formations are working better in FIFA 21 because of the new features. The complete guide on formations is explained in this blog post and we recommend you to read it so you can have a good comparison between different formations to pick the right one. You may want to try 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 3-1-4-2 and 4-2-3-1 for instance. It's recommended that you try a bunch of them and experiment until you feel comfortable with one or two that you may pick as your main formation against opponents.

Master FIFA 21 mechanics

In FIFA 21's new gameplay, if you want to get to the top of divisions, you must learn Agile Dribbling and Creative Runs. For Agile Dribbling, you should hold R1 when you approach an opponent. This will keep the ball close to the player and he will move slower and wait for the defender to take action and get past him with a dribble. The players that have higher dribbling skills are better at this.

For Creative Runs, Press L1 or RB in Xbox. It will simply give you control over the runs of your player and other players in your team. While holding L1, press the right stick on your controller when you see a space and the player will move in that given direction to use the space for an attack.

Work on skill moves

It's recommended that you add new skill moves to your team. With more skill moves, you'd have more advantages against your opponents in FIFA 21. For example, the drag-back fake is a skill move that almost nobody uses and if you learn how to use it, it will be very effective. Some of the moves are similar to FIFA 20, so if you're coming from previous versions, you may be familiar with them. When you master these moves, winning more games and earning more FIFA Coins becomes easier.

How to shoot properly

Newcomers may think of shooting as simply pressing the Circle Button and see what happens. But really it makes a difference to combine the buttons in different situations for shooting.

The classic way of shooting is pressing the Circle Button and the length of holding the button determines the power to shoot the ball towards the goal. If the player is facing the goal and you want to shoot it on goal, that's the only thing you should do.

Holding R1 + Circle (Or RB + B for Xbox) will make a finesse shot. It's a shot that throws the ball at the farthest corner of the goal, out of the reach of the goalkeeper, usually with a curve. These shots are great for scoring. And if the keeper does push them back, there's a high chance of using a rebound ball and score with one of the wingers.

For making a Cheap Shot, just hold L1 + Circle (Or LB + B). You make a cheap shot usually when it's one-on-one and the goalie leaves the goal to catch the ball. Just shoot the ball above the keeper and the ball bounces back to the goal slowly. It requires lots of practice of course.

And if you press L1 + R1 + Circle, the player will make a drilled shot. The ball will be kept low, but with lots of power towards the goal.

FIFA 22 - How to Get Loyalty Quick
Fifa Coins

Different FIFA 22 SBCs

Squad Building Challenges are great ways to get packs of players and earn some coins. The very first FIFA 22 SBC to complete is called "Let's Get Started". The reward of completing the 3 steps of this SBC is "x1 Two Playrers Pack" (Untradeable). When you complete the whole category, you'll be rewarded 4 FUT Packs of bronze players with guarantee of 1 rare player. The OVR range is max 64 and most of the players are cheap ones that probably wouldn't be much of use for you. But they're easy to get and you can always quicksell them or just send the unwanted players to transfer list to be sold for hundreds of FIFA 22 Coins per player.


Loyalty for SBC in FIFA 22

Some of the challenges require "Loyalty". It means the player should be loyal to your team. How can you get loyalty for the player? By playing 10 games!

FIFA 21 Loyalty FUTBIN

It means you should use the players in your active squad and play 10 games so they're counted loyal to the team. When that happens, the chemistry with those players will be boosted slightly and that would help complete the challenges in those SBCs. Usually they ask for a minimum of x Chemistry. And when you build the squad with the required players, you'll see that the chemistry hasn't reached the required minimum. With loyalty, it will reach the level needed to pass the SBC.

But the problem is, you don't need these players! You just buy them for the SBC, so, it's not much fun to play with them 10 times. That's why you may be looking for a faster way to get this green badge for the players.


How to get the Loyalty quick

The problem is, getting loyalty for the sake of completing SBCs is a painful process, because you don't want to keep those players. After completing the challenge, they will be traded with a FUT Pack. So, you wonder if there's an easier way to get this done... and the answer is yes!

With FIFA 22 Loyalty Glitch, you can bypass playing 10 games and yet get the loyalty for players. It works as follows:

  • Play Squad Battles vs CPU, using the players you want to get loyalty for.
  • Pause the game right after kick-off.
  • Press home button on your controller twice.
  • Close FIFA 22 Application


When you do that 10 times, you realize that the players get loyalty and your record in Squad Battles will not be harmed either.

 But since this method is alerting to EA's algorithms, it could cause troubles. To avoid that, you could forfeit the game instead of closing it. But it would harm your rankings in the Squad Battles leaderboards. So, it's up to you to pick which method.

But either way, the players get loyalty without having to play 4 hours for the players you don't want to keep.

FIFA 22 Squad Battles Rewards Guide
Fifa Coins

FIFA 22 Squad Battles are such easy ways to help you create your Ultimate Team club since the rewards include Player Packs! This series of matches give you an opportunity of winning possible top-tier players, along with a considerable amount of FUT coins, and of course, the ultimate experience of playing single-player matches and competing at the top. If you're interested in learning more about Squad Battles and their rewards, stay with us.

What is Squad Battles mode?

You can find the Squad Battles-related options under Ultimate Team > Single Player > Squad Battles menu. This game mode was introduced to FIFA Ultimate Team a few years ago and soon players from all around the world learned to join the challenges and pushed their limits against a bunch of variable squads on a weekly basis. A great way to step back from FIFA Ultimate Team and try something else for a change. In this single-player mode, you get to play up to 40 matches against AI opponents each week. You compete for a position on the weekly scoreboard and you are free to set the difficulty of the opposing squad beforehand on the settings. The list of your opponents is made by authentic players from around the world. The list gets updated on a daily basis. On the Squad Battles menu, you can see the Opponent Select tab, where you can choose your opponent and choose the difficulty level.
Note that the harder the difficulty level, the more points you earn. The rank you achieve along with points is exchanged for rewards (including packs, coins, etc.) every week on Sundays.

  • Beginner
  • Amateur ~ 20% higher points
  • Semi-Pro ~ 40% higher points
  • Professional ~ 100% higher points
  • World Class ~ 220% higher points
  • Legendary ~ 320% higher points
  • Ultimate ~ 420% higher points

The rival teams you're up against are divided into groups of 4 which have various difficulty levels. The very best quality of Squad Battles is that you can play the easier squads on high difficulty, and then either play the harder ones on lower settings or skip them completely which still counts as the share of your weekly 40 games. It's good to know that FIFA is counting on Squad Battles as an essential part of achieving Swaps Tokens for promos like ICONS, FUT Future Stars, or Team of the Season. Therefore, there are many fans counting on this game mode for great rewards and getting star players.
