They are similar to the current in-game icons, but with a few notable differences.
Let’s take a look at what FUT Heroes are and how they differ from icons:
What are FUT Heroes?
For each FUT Hero, the cards are designed to celebrate and honour “the unforgettable moments that turned them into fan favourites“.
The cards will also have league-specific chemistry relevant to the moment in which they are remembered for, as well as a nation link.
Each FUT Hero will be available in packs at the beginning of the game, and unlike the three-tier icon system, each Hero will only have one card.
Which players have been confirmed so far?
EA have already confirmed several big names from across the world, with more to be announced across August and September.
All players included on the list so far are actively retired.
Here are all the players that have been announced:
- Tim Cahill (Premier League)
- Robbie Keane (Premier League)
- Abedi Pele (Ligue 1 Uber Eats)
- Diego Milito (Serie A TIM)
- Mario Gomez (Bundesliga)
- Fernando Morientes (LaLiga Santander)
- Jorge Campos (Liga BBVA MX)
- Clint Dempsey (Major League Soccer)
- Sami Al-Jaber (MBS Pro League)
Who do FIFA fans want to see as FUT Heroes?
Via a SPORF post on Twitter, we asked who FIFA fans would like to see as their club’s FUT Hero on FIFA 22.
Paolo Di Canio – who played for clubs in the Premier League and Serie A – was also put forward.
