If you’re debating whether or not to complete the Max 86 Icon upgrade SBC, this list of top players should sway you in the right direction. There’s no doubt that packing any of the players above would be viewed as a massive win.

The top players available in this FIFA 23 SBC should have no trouble claiming a spot on your Ultimate Team squad, but with a ton of promo cards added to the game every week, their longevity is somewhat in doubt.

Nonetheless, the top pulls from the Max 86 Icon upgrade SBC will be powerhouses in the short term. Not only will the likes of Gullit and Zola excel in-game but they’ll make maximizing your squad’s chemistry easier as they count as two players from their nation.

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up two squads: 84-Rated Squad and 86-Rated Squad. Luckily, neither of the required SBC squads demands complex requirements aside from their squad rating.

This means you can use players out of position, and completely ignore chemistry so long as you meet the 84 and 86 squad ratings respectively.

With a value of around 131,000 coins, the Max 86 Icon upgrade is decent value for a Base or “baby” version of a FIFA 23 Icon.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

Most of the Icons that players can pull from this SBC are around or well above the 131,000 coin value listed above.

If you have some fodder in your club that would help reduce the cost of the SBC, then you may want to look into completing it. Even a Base Icon at this stage of the game is quite an impressive card, and with a little luck, you’ll pack Vieira or Essien.

FIFA 23 players must act fast seeing as they have until Thursday, October 20 to complete the SBC.
