“Released as individual SBCs and available for the duration of the event, these unique items will be upgraded even more than their FUT Birthday squad version,” EA Sports stated.

The three premium birthday SBCs include:

  • David Luiz (CDM) at 90 OVR — from FIFA FUT 13.
  • Stephan El Sharaawy (CAM) at 88 OVR — from FIFA FUT 12.

Daily Birthday SBCs

Daily Birthday packs are up for grabs this week and the first one that went live required players to exchange one of their squad players in exchange for a Premium Silver Jumbo pack.

“In addition to the regular rewards you get for completing the SBC, you will become eligible for additional tiered rewards if you complete 3 or more Daily Birthday SBCs. The more you complete, the higher your reward,” EA Sports stated.

Players will receive the extra reward after the event ends on April 8 but no later than April 14.

  • Exactly 3 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Mega Pack
  • Exactly 4 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Prime Player Pack
  • Exactly 5 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Rare Players Pack
  • Exactly 6 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Rare Mega Pack
  • Exactly 7 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Jumbo Rare Players Pack
  • Exactly 8 Daily Birthday SBCs completed — Ultimate Pack

EA Sports also mentioned that the extra Daily Birthday rewards are ‘untradeable and do not stack’. Players who complete three or more of these SBCs will also be rewarded with a unique SBC kit.
