FUT ICON Swap 1 - token counter: 0/?

ICON Swaps in FUT 20
Alongside being able to purchase ICONs on the Transfer Market or finding them in Packs, in FUT 20 we are introducing ICON Swaps, a new way to allow players to unlock select ICONs in exchange for Player Tokens which can be earned by completing objectives you exchange. Simply put:
  • Complete Player Token Objectives.
  • Receive Player Tokens.
  • Redeem for ICON Rewards available in a Swaps release.


@IAIK7 is your official ICON SWAP info thread spokesperson!
Contact him for all your questions.

More detailed information:
There will be 3 ICON Swaps released throughout the year.
  • Each ICON Swaps release will contain at least 20 individual ICONs (Untradeable).
  • Player Tokens can also be redeemed for select Guaranteed ICON Packs during each Swaps release.
  • Each ICON Swaps release will contain a range of ICON versions.
  • If an ICON has already been released in an ICON Swaps Release, it will not have any other versions released in a Future ICON Swaps Release.
  • ICON Swaps objectives will reflect the rewards on offer.

Each ICON Swaps release will have a unique set of Player Tokens tied to it.
  • Each Individual ICON in an ICON Swaps will require a certain number of Player Tokens in order to redeem.
  • Each Player Token can only be redeemed in that specific ICON Swaps release and does not roll over to the next ICON Swaps release.
  • The Player Tokens will be released over the duration of each ICON Swaps release.
  • Similar to FUT Swap Deals, you will need to choose which ICONs you want to unlock based on how many Player Tokens you have earned
.

ICON Swaps 1 will be released October 11th, 2019 and will run to December. ICON Swaps 1 also allows you to earn select Prime ICON players before they go into packs. It will feature the following ICONs with their specific version detailed in the image below:

    It doesn't state if each swap period if we get one pick or several. Ie. Can I take Drobga and Keane in swap period 1 or will I be limited to one choice ?

    You can get as many as your tokens allow, I thought that was pretty clear 🤷‍♂️ not sure if it specifically said how many tokens each will cost though

    So you think it wont be say 10 tokens pick your icon from the list. It will be specific tokens for each player so say Pirlo 8, Drobga 10 , Giggs 5?

    Yes, just like swaps in 19, the notes say there will be no picks like 19. That was my take on it anyway

    Lets say 20 tokens will be available then yes I'm guessing at least 18 will be needed for the actual prime versions that are there i.e. keane (who I used from say dec-apr 19).

    Then yes anything from say 6-17 for any of the others as I'm guessing will be made that no more than 2 or certainly 3 at absolute most that we'll beable to get.

    Hello to you @Bernardof107, yes, I think it will be like FUT Swap last year. We just have to wait untill the 11th of next month to see!

    Ballack + Crespo + Ferdinand look like the best to spend tokens on, that Crespo was a monster on draft right up until the end even with the TOTS cards available and Rio with an anchor/sentinel will be good till late game.
  • sounds like futswaps from reading the pitch notes.
    each icon will have corresponding tokens related to them. i personally may want Drogba, Gerrard or Wright personally.

    sounds like a good concept tbh, looking forward to it.

    Some great options - tough decisions ahead.

    Never did get round to having Ferdinand in one of my teams...

    We could use some meaningful information on what sort of requirements swaps will have

    At the moment we have something that could either be good or horribly bad, depending how it is implemented and what the typical requirements are. I know full detail might not be possible but a typical example would help

    Think of FUT Swap. The requirements aren't suddenly going to be score a hatrick of bycicle kicks while filming yourself standing on your head.

    I doubt they will be as straightforward as the old swaps. We don't even know how many you need

    You'll find out on the 11th of October! That's when it starts! Let's hope it's fun and engaging!

    Have to say a good but obvious more harder version of a "swap" objective is in squad battle, i.e. for normal swap card you have needed to get silver 3 but for say an icon token you'd have to get at least say gold 3 or even gold 1.

    To be fair very good if true.

    I don't mind if the requirements for tokens are difficult I just hope we can get them soon-ish after the promo drops, don't want to have to wait until December to cash in for an Icon.

    This will either be a fantastic addition to the game or it could completely ruin the FUT journey this year. I am also a little concerned about golds on the market long term this FIFA without the ICON SBCs lingering into the later parts of the game (they are going to have to seriously up their SBC game this year with other cards).

    Yes equiv of futties earlier on they would have to do i.e. similar sbc to say that pogba 95 card or more guaranteed tots pick sbc at the least/latest.

    So I understand there will be 3 Icon Swaps released throughout the year and each Icon Swaps release will contain at least 20 individual Icons (Untradeable). So that means at least 60 Icon players will be involved?

    But there are 89 Icons? So maybe as many as 29 Icons won't get an Icon swap? Or maybe some will be in the normal monthly Fut Swaps?
