In total this method will cost you around 92k. You can make your money back aswell by selling the players afterwards as they do sell.
Pretty sure I've stated the flaws with this method..

Selling 400+ cards will be a hassle... Much easier discarding gold shinys.

But thanks for the input nonetheless.

Cheers for doing the maths!

I currently have a value of about 37,000,000 mainly just from bronze packs lol (got the pack king achievement).

I'm getting there, with the help of selling around 30k worth of assets from my squad, and using it to buy players and also make a bit of profit from trading, in a couple of hours tonight I've gone from a club value of 41million up to 59million

I'll be so glad when this is out of the way, can't believe I'm spending all this time and effort just for 30 gamerscore!

cheers for the breakdown, i got it by searching gold max 150, then bidding 300 on gold and 600 on shineys,making a profit when discarding or selling on rather than losing any coins.Only really outbid on cards that were going to go for a few hundred more anyway.picked up a good few bargains this way as well

Only 8 million to go! And with the help of an 80k cash injection from selling Torres I'll probably nail this achievement tonight.

With well over 600 players in my club it's going to take me forever to get rid of them after it pops though

Just thought i'd add, not sure if people know this. But You can pick up most shiny gold players 78+ for 600 and discard at a profit (about 20-40 coins) and 75-77 shiny for 550. Also non shiny players for 300 each and discard them at a 20-40 profit. So when you do reach 85mil and discard you would have made a nice profit.

Well I finally did it - current club value is 81,664,544

But....no achievement has popped



Tried exiting UT and going back in, playing a match, dashboarding and going back in, but nothing. After grinding this so much in the last few days I am rather pissed off.....

Right, got 85 million now and achievement popped, finally!

Seems to have been one of the most ridiculous achievements ever on FIFA, 85m is a LOT of effort for 30 gamerscore. I had two full squads initially and a club value of 8million, and I've turned that into 85million in the space of 5 days so not bad going I suppose.

Now to get rid of the 700+ players I accumulated! A little tip for you (now that I've got it so you're not after the same players!), when I was going for the 300 coin gold players I only searched for 4-1-2-1-2 formations - still easy enough to get for 300, but I've found that you do have a better chance of making a bit of profit afterwards instead of just discarding for your money back. I've already sold several cards I got for 300 coins for 450-500, and cards I got for 600 coins for 750-800, the formation does make a difference. I've still discarded a lot but you can tell which cards are likely to sell on the trade pile for a bit more.

Good luck to those still going for this achievement, you'll get there in the end.

An extension of what John SWFC is saying. Look for pace. Pacy players seem to sell well.

Do consumables count towards this club value?

Good advice. I'm nearly there (just over 80 mil atm), and will be doing this soon.

I've been getting mostly Golds at 300 a pop, and when I've got duplicates in a better formation (4-1-2-1-2, 4-4-2 etc), I've swapped them and sold the crappier version for 350 coins, knowing that I can probably get more for those in better formations once I've got the achievement.

I definitely recommend buying as many of the cheap players as you can in 4-1-2-1-2, or other popular formations.

I've sold dozens of 4-1-2-1-2 average gold players that I got for 300 coins for 450 coins BIN, starting at 400, and a lot of players for quite a bit more if they're popular. I almost can't replenish my trade pile fast enough, they're going like hot cakes! I've also sold a lot of shinies for profit, including some I got for 600 coins for as much as 1,500.

Silvers are generally selling for 250 BIN, when I got them for 150, and I've been putting up rare bronze players (I didn't worry about the formation with those) that I got for 150 coins and they're usually selling for 200 BIN or 250 if a decent formation.

Made well over 100k back so far with still about 400 players left. It takes a bit longer than simply discarding, but you make loads more coins - it's fun watching my club value plummet whilst my trade profit soars!

Got it last night, and am slowly selling off the spare players

One thing I have noticed, though, is that when I'm putting up 75/76 players for sale, that I know only paid 250 coins for, it's showing them as bought for 500/550 coins.

I never pay more than 300 coins tops for a 75/76, yet nearly every one says I paid 500/550 coins for them

Planning on doing this achievement one of the few I've got left, but I've already got a club value of 15,379,798. Any mathematical geniuses fancy figuring out how much money I need to do the rare gold? Thank you.

Most cost-effective method is rare bronzes, you can usually pick them up for 150 coins, and you get a club value of 100k+ from them, which is the same as you get for spending 300 on a gold.

At 65 millions so far, still Neuer, Lahm and Schweinsteiger on sale so i should have enough money to get the rest of the well needed silver and gold players!
