FIFA 22 FUT Heroes were announced as a brand new card type coming to Ultimate Team when the game launches Oct. 1.

Two of the biggest blemishes on FIFA 21's record are the #EAGate scandal and fans' displeasure with the Icon program. Fans wanted Icons to be more accessible than ever to the player base majority, but there were still complaints about the Icon Swaps and SBC programs. Additionally, the allegations regarding a black market added even more gasoline to the fire.

It seems this new FUT Heroes program is a subset of Icons in FUT providing strong links to any player in the designated league for the item. A unique chemistry addition that will allow players to theorize even more with their squads.
