Replacing FUT Swaps this year, FIFA 20 icon swaps are a brand new system intended to make some FIFA 20 icons more accessible to casual players. Not everyone can trade their way up to some of the best players in the game, nor can everyone get lucky FIFA 20 pack pulls, so the FIFA 20 icon swaps and player token objectives mean people can earn icons reliably. Here's a complete list of the FIFA 20 icon swaps, player token objectives, and more.

What are FIFA 20 icon swaps?

FIFA 20 icon swaps are finally in the game as of Friday, October 11, which means that you can finally get started on the grind towards earning player tokens. Ranging from Peter Schmeichel for six tokens to Didier Drogba for 23 tokens, there's 24 options available, including a base icon pack which gives you a random base icon.

In order to earn player tokens, you need to complete a series of challenges and objectives. Right now, there's 12 available, and they range from things like winning nine FUT Champions (weekend league) matches to winning five FIFA 20 Squad Battles on at least World Class difficulty with a full Eredivisie squad.

These objectives are able to be completed between now and the end of the first FIFA 20 season, which finishes on November 8 at 5pm GMT. When the second season kicks off, there'll be 12 more player tokens available so you can earn the rest towards players like Drogba and Hagi. Check out the full list of FIFA 20 player token objectives below:
