While FIFA 23 is expected to introduce new features like World Cup content and possible cross-play, Ultimate Team fans will likely be looking forward to these FIFA 23 returning features. One of these returning features is FUT’s new icons and hero cards, one of the most popular items in the game. They are special rare player cards in FIFA Ultimate Team based on legendary football players over the years and replicate their timeline in four different cards. We’ll cover everything you need to know about FUT’s new icons and hero cards in FIFA 23 below. If you want to get FUT icons and hero cards in advance, it is recommended that you buy plenty of FIFA 23 coins in case you need them.
What is a FUT Icon Card?
Icon cards honor the best players who have graced the pitch throughout football history. For starters, each Icon card comes in three versions: Basic, Intermediate and Prime. Each edition is an ode to the player’s career from entering the stage to becoming a global superstar. Not only do Icon cards usually have high overall ratings, but they provide the chemistry of the players on your team regardless of league or country. Additionally, they will provide strong links for players who share the same country, making them ideal for building mixed squads.

But the accuracy of the information will not be made clear until official sources provide clarification.
