Frequently Asked Questions
FIFA 23 SBC is a single-player game mode within FUT. Playing it, the players have new opportunities to get creative, submitting squad building challenges and earning rewards.
Squad Building Challenges were released for the first time in FIFA 17. Since then, they have become very popular.
One of the aims of the Squad Building Challenges game mode is to allow players to use cards they don’t need or leave rotting in their clubs, completing challenges and earning rewards for it.
Here is a list of controls you have to use to build and submit your squad:
Users have a wide selection of dynamic scenarios to complete, which are grouped into a few categories, like Basic, Advanced, Upgrades, Live, Leagues, Marquee Matchups, POTM, Icons, Flashbacks or Player Moments.
Foundation Challenges (former Basic Challenges) were designed to teach beginners how to submit SBCs. They are always available from the first day.
Advanced Challenges were designed especially for those who want to master SBCs. By completing them, you will discover a few tricks to help you submit the most complex challenges.
Upgrade Challenges were designed to let you reach the next level, submitting the players you don’t want and receiving others from higher qualities. They are typically based on quality upgrades (gold, silver, and bronze) and league upgrades (Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga, Serie A, Ligue 1, and Champions League). The first ones are always available from the first day, while the others are only available for a few days at specific times.
League Challenges were designed to complete a challenge for each club of a specific league or continental competition. They are available at specific times from September to August.
Marquee Matchups were designed to highlight the key real-life matches for the coming week. New regular MMs are released every week, featuring four challenges. Additionally, UEFA challenges are also out at specific times.
Live Challenges are special time-limited release Challenges Groups that will not have a regular release schedule and end after a set period. These could be tied to campaigns or real-world events in the game during the Season.
Icons Challenges were designed to reward your effort with an Icon item. They are released at specific times from October to August.
Flashback Challenges are special SBCs that reward your effort with unique items representing players’ milestone seasons. The Flashback items recognize previous accomplishments of active players by featuring increased stats based on a particularly great season. They are available at specific times and remain active only for a few days.

They are usually released monthly, and the challenges remain active only for a few weeks.
While on the main Squad Building Challenges screen, you can press triangle (PlayStation) or Y (Xbox) to tag a specific group as your favorite.
The FIFA 23 SBC requirements are usually a mix of Player Quality, Squad Chemistry and Rating, Nationalities, Leagues, and Clubs.
The first SBCs on your checklist should be those in the Basic category. These challenges are tailor-made to ease you into completing various tasks and provide a range of generous pack rewards that can be sold, used for additional SBCs, or added to your squad. Most of these early challenges require little effort and can often be completed with the players you’ve already acquired. Should you peruse the transfer market, you won’t need to spend too many coins to complete everything.
It’s easy. On your main FUT screen (home), a button, ‘Squad Building Challenges’, redirects you directly to the SBC main screen.
You can use your console, PC, or the Web/Companion App to complete challenges and earn in-game rewards.
Everyone who owns a FUT Club is eligible to enter this game mode.
FIFA 23 SBC is available every day since the first day. However, there are two types of challenges: the ones you can complete at any time since they are always available; and the ones with an expiry date. In these cases, you have to finish them before they expire to earn those rewards. If a challenge expires before you complete and submits it, you’ll get your Players back.
It depends. Most of the challenges can only be submitted once. However, you can submit a selection of SBCs as often as you want or a specific number of times.
The first time you select Squad Building Challenges, a tutorial will appear explaining how to complete your first challenge group. Once this tutorial has been completed, you’ll need to select one of the many Challenges available to work towards completing.
Here are the different steps you need to do to earn those unique rewards in Squad Building Challenges:
- Check the Requirements
When starting to build a Squad in FIFA 23 SBC, you will see a list of requirements on the right side of the screen. These are the requirements you need to meet to earn the rewards.
- Create a Squad
The pool of players you will choose from will be cards in your club. If needed, you can also go to the Transfer Market. It is recommended to use unwanted cards in SBCs. Double-check your squad to see if all the requirements are met. Substitutes, reserves, and managers are not taken into account.
- Submit your Squad and Earn Rewards
When you are sure all requirements have been met, you can submit your squad and earn special rewards.
Pay attention because this is particularly important: you will be unable to get back the items you use in the Squad Building Challenges. Think wisely about which players you select – you will give up all player items that are part of the challenge once you submit your team.
You can add an SBC Protection onto players in your Club to help ensure that you don’t submit a star player into a Squad Building Challenge by accident. If you try submitting a player with SBC Protection enabled, you will receive a prompt asking you to confirm that you are happy to submit this player. There is also a functionality to exclude Active Squad members from Club search results, making squad building and SBCs easier.
Brick Slot is a feature in which one or more slots are locked to a specific club and league.
No. Formations are locked for each challenge.
Completing Challenges and Groups gives access to several rewards. The individual challenges are rewarded with FUT packs, coins, player items, and kits while completing groups gives access to even bigger rewards like unique player items.
Depending on the challenge, they can be tradeable or not.
You receive the rewards as soon as you submit an individual challenge or complete a group of challenges.
Some Challenges are repeatable. While you’ll have a chance at getting different rewards each time you submit the Squad, there is a possibility of getting a repeat reward.
Some FIFA SBCs have multiple challenges with individual rewards and a larger group reward for completing them. They are part of larger challenges called Groups. Completing an entire Group earns you other in-game rewards, so it pays to complete more than one challenge. In other words, completing a set of challenges unlocks additional group rewards.
You can do a few things to spend as little as possible when completing an SBC. Here are a few tips:
- Don’t Discard
Don’t discard your bronze and silver players cards at least until you have finished the first challenges.
- Check the Chemistry
If you are unsure about the chemistry of the team you are building, use the concept players, the companion app, or an external squad builder website.
- Only Do The Minimum Requirement
You don’t need to do more than what is asked. Meeting the minimum requirements will make you eligible to earn the rewards.
- Don’t Sacrifice Good Cards
Try as much as possible not to use very good cards. You will not be able to get back the cards you use in SBCs unless you find them in packs or on the transfer market. Use your unwanted cards to fill out your Squad.
- Focus on the Rating
The player’s stats are irrelevant for Squad Building Challenges, which means you can use players with lower pace, worst skills, and less popular, spending fewer coins that way. Try to find out who are the cheapest players for each overall rating.
- Use Loyalty to complete Hybrid SBCs
Some SBCs may require a little extra work to complete. You’ll probably need to dip into the transfer market in these cases. However, you can, most of the time, make your life easier (and cheaper), taking advantage of the chemistry boost of loyalty.
- Don’t Copy Squads from other Players
Never use FUTBin, FUTWiz, or other Squad’s suggestions. These squads are followed by thousands of players, which means that once they are published, their price rises a lot.
- Do your Homework Before starting a challenge, make sure it’s worth it. See how much you will spend and what is the value of the reward you will get.
Squad Building Challenge cards are unique untradeable items that players can get exclusively by completing specific challenges. They can not be found in packs or on the transfer market.
