FIFA 23 World Cup History Makers was announced as part of a special in-game promotion for the upcoming World Cup.

World Cup History Makers is yet another in-game promotion tied to the upcoming, exciting month of FIFA Ultimate Team content. This promotion draws similarities to Next Generation from FIFA 22 in which all players have to do is play the game to earn a special untradeable item. World Cup History Makers follows similar requirements for claiming free items.

Here's everything you need to know about FIFA 23 World Cup History makers including how to claim the cards, what cards are available and more.

FIFA 23 World Cup History Makers: How to Claim Free Cards

All players have to do to be eligible for World Cup History Maker items is play FIFA 23 between Nov. 9 and Jan. 3, 2023. Logging into the Web App and playing the EA Play trial are excluded from inclusion. Every available platform is available for eligibility.

Players will be granted the items between Dec. 23 and Jan. 3, 2023.

FIFA 23 World Cup History Makers Players

Players will get a loan Icon or FUT Hero and a World Cup History Makers item. Of the items promoted, here's what we know so far:

  • Loan Zinedine Zidane Icon and World Cup History Makers Kylian Mbappe
  • Loan David Beckham and World Cup History Makers Jude Bellingham

EA Sports revealed special edition covers for FIFA 23 during the World Cup. The two previously mentioned have covers, and there is also a USA themed cover with Clint Dempsey and Christian Pulisic. That would line up with the loan FUT Hero aspect of the promotion.
