Keep reading for the cheapest FIFA 22 First XI SBC solution in these early stages of the game.
With a range of challenges on offer, the Hybrid League and Hybrid Nations SBCs are a fantastic way of earning incredibly valuable packs that will either generate top-class talent for your first XI, or turn a nice profit on the transfer market.
Over in the Hybrid Leagues Squad Builder Challenges, one puzzle is substantially more difficult than the rest, and that is the FIFA 22 First XI SBC. Having to build a squad from a variety of leagues with no repetition allowed is quite a requirement, often resulting in hours of studying and many mistakes on the market.
However, there is a cheap way that the First XI SBC can be done, especially if you've stored up some players in your club. So, here's the cheapest way to complete the First XI SBC in FIFA 22.
FIFA 22 First XI SBC Cheapest Solution
First XI SBC Requirements
First off, it's important to recognise what you have to do in order to complete this SBC.
- Leagues: Exactly 11
- Rare Players: Min. 8
- Player Quality: Exactly Gold
- Team Chemistry: Exactly 100
- Formation: 4-1-4-1
First XI SBC Rewards
The completion of the FIFA 22 First XI SBC will grant you a Rare Player Pack, containing 12 rare gold players, worth a decent 50,000 coins. You can do the SBC for half of that price.
You will also get a Rare Mega Pack for finishing the Hybrid Leagues collection, containing 30 rare items, which would normally cost 55,000.
First XI SBC Tips
The requirements reiterate that 100 Chemistry is needed to complete the First XI SBC, and with so many different leagues having to feature, the only way to do this is by finding players from a single nation, keeping a consistent link between all players.
Many of these players go onto the market from people who don't understand their value, meaning some patience (and quick thumbs) could save you a substantial number of coins. Refreshing the market for 30 seconds to a minute, per player, can sometimes save you 500-2,000 coins on specific players.
Loyalty is key. One player with a loyalty bonus is required, but with five loyal players, the SBC gets substantially easier. With a bit of wiggle room allowed from the bonuses, you can field a player in a slightly unfamiliar position, such as a LB in LM, which can save you a fortune.

The total cost for the FIFA 22 First XI SBC is roughly 24,000 coins, although depending on who you've already packed, this can be decreased drastically.
*In the example below, Ayrton, a LB from the Russian League was used in place of Filipe Anderson (Serie A), and Luiz Felipe was used over Pablo to counteract the opposite leagues, due to loyalty bonuses.
It's worth noting that most positions have a replacement that cost slightly more from a different league, such as Wesley, a striker from the Belgian League. If you've managed to pack Brazillian players from an obscure league, they're worth putting into the team to reduce the costs of two players, plus you get the loyalty bonus chemistry.
In previous years, Spanish players were the key to success in the First XI SBC, which is still possible. However, unless you've managed to pull out some hidden gems, they'll likely cost a fortune.
For the early days of FIFA 22, this is the cheapest way to build the First XI SBC.
