EA Sports has released the EA FC 24 89+ Encore Icon Player Pick SBC in Ultimate Team for gamers to test their luck and potentially get their hands on some of the best legends available in the game. This is the first Icon pack released in a long time that does not include Winter Wildcards Icons, making it a popular choice amongst gamers.

While some Winter Wildcards Icons like Pele are still usable in the current meta of the game, most of these special versions are far behind the power curve of the current meta. This makes the latest EA FC 24 89+ Encore Icon Player Pick SBC especially appealing, as it features Icon players from the TOTY, Ultimate Birthday, and Future Stars events only.

Unlike the previously released 88+ Icon player pick, the EA FC 24 89+ Encore Icon Player Pick SBC requires three squads to be completed instead of two. This makes it more expensive and more challenging to complete, but the rewards on offer are of a higher caliber as well.

These are the specific requirements of each segment of the SBC:

Task 1: 86-rated squad

  • Any TOTS or TOTW players: Minimum one
  • Team overall rating: Minimum 86

Task 2: 87-rated squad

  • Any TOTS or TOTW players: Minimum one
  • Team overall rating: Minimum 87

Task 3: 89-rated squad

  • Team overall rating: Minimum 89

The requirement of two Team of the Season or Team of the Week cards will make the SBC more expensive to complete than anticipated, but these cards can be obtained as untradeable items via SBCs and objectives.
