If you're wanting to avoid a headache, then you're really going to want to check out the FIFA 23 87+ Base or Mid Icon Upgrade SBC solution we have here. There has been another refresh of the 87+ Icon pack SBC dropped into FIFA, and it is sure to drive both the market and the player base crazy, as you can get your hands on some excellent players here. So, to see all of the objectives, rewards, and the cheapest FIFA 23 87+ Base or Mid Icon Upgrade SBC solution, then make sure to have a read of the rest of this guide.

FIFA 23 87+ Base Or Mid Icon Upgrade SBC Objectives

There are few things more exciting in FIFA than a guaranteed Icon pack, and this one, in particular, is good because of the minimum rating threshold. If you're tired of getting the same low rated Icons in your packs, then this SBC is for you.

Here are all of the objectives that you'll have to complete for the FIFA 23 87+ Base or Mid Icon Upgrade SBC:

  • Top Form
    • IF Players: Min One
    • Squad Rating: Min 83
    • # of players in the Squad: 11
  • 85-Rated Squad
    • Squad Rating: Min 85
    • # of players in the Squad: 11
  • 87-Rated Squad
    • Squad Rating: 87
    • # of players in the Squad: 11

As you can see, this particular SBC isn't too bad to complete considering the players that you can pick up, and thankfully it just requires you to fill in the gaps with the correct ratings, so knowing how far you can stretch that, and which players to pick up can really go a long way in keeping the cost down even more. Thankfully, we have you covered down below.

Furthermore, this SBC is set to expire on December 2, at 6PM GMT so you'll have a bit of time to think it over and save up if you want to try your luck at the 87+ Base or Mid Icon Upgrade.
