FIFA 21 Icon Swaps Explained

Icon Swaps works in a similar way in FIFA 21 to how it did last year. You’ll see objectives in the Seasons tab that you need to complete to unlock player tokens throughout the season.

Player tokens are untradeable special versions of low rated players that have no real use beyond being traded in for Icon players in SBCs.

Each Icon included in Icon Swaps in FIFA 21 will need a specific number of tokens to unlock.

There will be a maximum of 18 tokens available to unlock, with eight of them available now and 10 more coming at the start of season 3 in three weeks’ time. In short, here’s the info you need.

  • Icon Swaps 1 lasts for 62 days, until Feb. 12, 2021
  • There are six players to unlock and some packs
  • Eight tokens are available now, with 10 more to come on Jan. 1, 2021.

All Icons Included

We will keep this section updated with the objectives you need to complete to earn tokens, which you’ll then be able to trade in. You’ll find them under Icon Swaps & Icon Swaps 2. There are only 8 to earn before the end of season 2. They all also require you to play in the One League Live FUT Friendly, which understandably limits your squad to one league.

How to Unlock Players

Once you’ve got the required number of tokens for the Icons you want to unlock, head to the Squad Building Challenges section of the game.

In there, you’ll find a tab called Swaps, where the FGS Swaps were before. Open up the challenge for the Icon you want and put in the required number of player tokens. Submit the SBC squad, and the Icon will be given to you. You can do as many as you like during the Icon Swaps period, up to the maximum number of tokens.
