FUT 21: SBC Marquee Matchups Guide - how to prepare & make money? FIFA 21 guide, tips

In this chapter of the FIFA 21 guide, you will find out what the SBC Marquee Matchups are, how to prepare for them and how to make money in the FUT 21 transfer market.

Each week in FIFA 21, in the FUT 21 (FIFA Ultimate Team) mode, you can find Squad Building Challenges called Marquee Matchups. SBC's Marquee Matchups usually consist of four specific tasks, which are related to the four highlighted football matches played on a given week globally. In most cases, these are high-stakes meetings, such as league derbies or encounters of eternal rivals, such as El Clásico (a match between Spanish teams FC Barcelona and Real Madrid), but international matches may also take place.

Marquee Matchups - When do they start?

SBC's Marquee Matchups in FUT 21 mode appear every Thursday at 6 pm CET (10:00 AM PT time, 1:00 pm ET time). They can be completed for a week, until next Thursday.

Marquee Matchups - Requirements

To play SBC's Marquee Matchups you will need to use players from both preselected clubs, for example, one player from Liverpool and one from Arsenal. Besides, other specific conditions have to be met, such as at least 2 rare players, at least 6 nationalities, a minimum squad score of 80, minimum chemistry of 85, etc. Because the vast majority of players want to complete SBC and get valuable rewards, you can take advantage of that and make quite good money.

Marquee Matchups - How to make money?

If you want to earn money on SBC's Marquee Matchups, you have to learn how to predict which matches might be featured in a given week. Trying to guess which matches will appear in the SBC's Marquee Matchups may seem a bit risky, but you can make it a lot easier by using a site called FIFA Analytics, which does it daily.

  1. After entering the page, go to the Marquee Matchups tab and select the latest records for the month and week. FIFA Analytics will make a summary for you and forecast next Marquee Matchups in a given week. It includes all the meetings with the type of games they are - league, derby, cup, etc. Matches that got to the SBC's Marquee Matchups are later highlighted in green;
  2. Once you have selected the right matches, go to the FUT Transfer Market, and buy a few CHEAP golden cards (overall score 75 to 78) of players from teams, that you think will appear in Marquee Matchup in the SBC. Don't buy expensive footballers, because everyone interested will be looking for a budget solution;
  3. On the launch day of the tasks, put up the previously purchased cards on the transfer market for a higher price - when demand for them is highest, and the market is lacking the needed cards.

Every week in the SBC's Marquee Matchups, there will be at least two tasks involving a very important meeting between two "big" teams, so keep that in mind when you're typing. The other two tasks are usually associated with minor football leagues.

{ramakzielona}If you don't get to guess matches from a given week, it's not a big deal, because you bought cheap cards anyway. In your club, you will have gold cards of players from fine clubs that you can sell and get back invested coins or keep them longer and sell them the following week when they appear in the SBC's Marquee Matchups.{/ramkazielona}
