With FIFA 21 around the corner, EA Sports has announced which new Icons can be played in their new game and especially german and spanish fans will be happy about the news. Ultimate Team players look forward to new Icons, because they often want to play with their childhood heros, most of which have retired already and can’t be played, unless they get an Icon card.

What are Icons?

Icons are special, very rare cards that can be played in FIFA Ultimate Team. In FIFA 21 there  will be 100 Icons available. They are very expensive, but therefore very good in-game and only few players are lucky enough to pack one. Only retired players, which EA sees as worthy enough of being called an Icon can receive such a card.
