On Monday, EA did something that was genuinely awesome — they added six new Squad Building Challenges, each one paying homage to the six FUT Champions Regional Final winners.
These SBCs are active for five days, and they all have identical requirements except for some specifics, like the club the player supports and their respective countries. The reward for completing SBC is a Premium Gold Players Pack, which is worth 25,000 coins.
Daniele ‘Prisipe’ Paolucci, Giuseppe ‘xGuastellax’ Guastella, Aldossary ‘MSDossary’ Mossad, Hashtag Tass, Rafael ‘rafifa’ Fortes, and Khalid ‘xX ThE RoYaL Xx’ Aloufi all received their own personalized SBC.
The rewards are a little underwhelming but they're fairly easy to complete, especially if you've been opening packs for ‘Team of the Season’ a.k.a. TOTS.
Here’s a look at the requirements for each:

On top of this, practically all of the players tweeted out the news from their personal accounts, and encouraged their followers to finish the SBCs and send them screenshots of their rewards.

At the end of the day, it’s just very cool to see that EA are acknowledging the FUT Champions Regional champions with something interactive in the game. It’s fostered a conversation between the pros and their fans on Twitter, and greatly helped out the community of FIFA esports lovers.
Fair play on this one, EA.
