Before we get started, make sure to locate the Elite Eight SBC by going to Squad Building Challenges > Hybrid Nations > Elite Eight. From there, it will bring up the requirements as well as the reward. For completing the Elite Eight SBC in FIFA 23, players will earn a Rare Players Pack. The requirements are as follows:

  1. Exactly 8 Countries/Regions.
  2. Max. 2 Players from the same Country/Region.
  3. Max. 3 Players from the same Club.
  4. Min. 5 Rare Players in your Starting 11.
  5. Player Quality: Exactly Gold.
  6. Min. 21 Squad Chemistry Points.

With those requirements in mind, it’s time to find a solution. And fortunately, there’s a cost-effective one to be had. Again, with this particular SBC, you cannot heavily rely on just one nation to build your base. It will take the right blend to make this work, but you can still heavily feature one league if you so choose.

I’ve been having great success using Serie A as a base for these, and the Elite Eight SBC is no exception. You’re going to want to double up on nations three times—I opted for Belgium, Portugal, and Italy—and put together a squad for roughly 6,500 coins.

One crucial aspect to remember is that this build does require five rare golds, so be sure to designate your goalkeeper as one of the rare players. Despite its rarity, a lot of goalkeepers in the low 80s can be had for relatively cheap—and certainly for under 1,000 coins if you’re looking carefully.

Additionally, because the Chemistry requirement is so low on this one, you can stick Origi’s original ST card at LW and not suffer because of it—it only reduces the Chemistry of your squad to 30/33, which is more than enough.

And that’s all players need to know in order to complete the Elite Eight SBC in FIFA 23. The rewards are untradeable this time around, but it’s not too big of an investment either way.
