FIFA 20: The 96-rated Lionel Messi SBC is now available on Ultimate Team

Lionel Messi has another shiny new card on FIFA 20

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has another shiny new card on FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

After a breathtaking November with the Blaugrana, the Argentine was named the La Liga Player of the Month for November.

Messi scored four times in La Liga last month, including a hat-trick against Celta Vigo at the Camp Nou.

Thanks to his usual brilliance in front of goal, FIFA players now have the chance to earn a special 96-rated Messi card on Ultimate Team through a Squad Building Challenge.

It's the first time such a high-rated card has been available in this a manner so early into a new edition of the game.

As a result, the beastly looking Messi card is far from cheap. Below, we've provided the requirements needed to add the Barcelona magician to your squad.


  • An 86-rated squad with one Barcelona player
  • An 87-rated squad with one Argentina player
  • An 88-rated squad with one La Liga player
  • An 88-rated squad
  • An 89-rated squad
  • An 89-rated squad

So. Bloody. Expensive.

However, it's kind of hard to blame EA Sports on this one. After all, if he was available on the cheap, the Argentine would effectively break the game - even more...

So unless you're one of the lucky players to have packed an elite icon which you can sell to fund the challenge, getting Messi is going to be tough.

We get the feeling EA Sports are going to earn yet more profit from packs in the coming days...
