FIFA 23 Team of the Year Icon card design was leaked ahead of the card type's expected inclusion in the FIFA Ultimate Team promotion.
Team of the Year Icons appear to be the next Campaign Icon release following World Cup Icons in November. Campaign Icons is a new card type in FIFA Ultimate Team this year replacing Prime Icon Moments. EA Sports opted to remove Prime Icon Moments for a more dynamic power curve for one of the most popular card types in the game. Campaign Icons were first introduced with the World Cup update. World Cup Icons were rated in between their middle and Prime versions, though not every Icon received a World Cup version.
The next Campaign Icon seems to be Team of the Year Icons. CriminalFIFA and Fut_scoreboard posted the card design on Twitter ahead of an announcement by EA Sports.
FIFA 23 Team of the Year Icon Card Design Leaked
The card design is stunning, combining the Icon card design with the Team of the Year design. Most would imagine that this set of Campaign Icons include players who were not added to the World Cup update. Or, EA Sports could opt to include a small number of Icons who also received World Cup cards.
Ratings predictions are hard to make since base Icons are already out of packs. Middle Icons are becoming less and less relevant in the power curve with Prime Icons dominating. Fans should expect Team of the Year Icon SBCs much like the World Cup. Carles Puyol, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Hristo Stoichkov were released during the World Cup festivities.
FIFA 23 Team of the Year kicks off Jan. 20 at 1 p.m. ET.
