Black Friday is almost here, and EA Sports has kicked off the celebrations in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, releasing a pre-Black Friday promo leading up to the actual event. They released a Team of the Week “Best of” team in packs and started the process of releasing Flash SBCs. These Flash SBCs are excellent for providing fans with regular pack-based content.

TIC Toc. ⏰Black Friday is coming… ⚫️Get it #WAS the festivities started early with an all-new Best of Team of the Week, available now in #FIFA23.

The Pre-Black Friday Flash Challenge 1 SBC is available in FIFA 23 for two hours from 6:00 p.m. GMT to 8:00 p.m. GMT. This is the first of many Flash challenges to be released during the pre-Black Friday and Black Friday walkthroughs in FUT, and it’s a rather simplistic challenge that offers a pack in return.

With the release of the “Best of” team TOTW, the Black Friday festivities are well and truly underway. The Path to Glory promo recently reached its conclusion, with the various special builds being removed from packs.

However, fans will be happy to know that there will still be a large gallery of special cards available to pack into FUT, with a brand new World Cup-themed promo showing on Friday.

The SBC requires a single team to complete in FUT. Although the stipulations required to complete the SBC are rather detailed and complex, the SBC itself is quite simple. Here are the specific requirements that must be met to receive SBC rewards in FIFA 23:

  • Max 4 players from the same league
  • Min 4 players from the same club
  • Min 4 players: Gold
  • Player quality: minimum money
  • Minimum 8 players: Rare
  • Minimum 28 total team chemistry points
  • Number of players in the squad: 11

The expected cost of the SBC is around 6,000 FUT Coins and it offers players a Small Rare Gold Players Pack as a reward upon completion.

Flash SBCs are a key aspect of the vintage Black Friday experience in FIFA Ultimate Team. Squad Building Challenges were introduced to the series in FIFA 17 and have been a staple of FUT ever since. In FIFA 23, Flash SBCs have once again made their long-awaited return with the Pre-Black Friday promo.

There will be Flash challenges at regular intervals during this promo this weekend. This will allow FUT enthusiasts to get their hands on an incredible amount of packs, which is a tempting proposition with the number of special cards released in packs during the event.

The Flash Challenge 1 features a Small Rare Gold Players Pack, which has a store value of around 25,000 FUT coins. Compared to the price of the SBC, this is an absolute bargain, especially since most players will be able to complete the SBC entirely with cards already available at their club.
