FIFA 22 is set to introduce a new type of Ultimate Team item to the game in the form of FUT Hero Cards – but which players have been selected, and how can you get your hands on the fancy new ICON-style players?
Although there’s a lot of excitement around FIFA 22‘s Career Mode, the majority of players are looking forward to building their very own starting XI in Ultimate Team.
One of the most exciting aspects of the mode is the collectible cards that players can obtain via packs, challenges, or through the marketplace.
With every annual FIFA title, EA introduces brand new card types, and this year’s addition is FUT Heroes. Although these cards are lower-rated than standard ICONS, they have some unique bonuses that may make them worth picking up.

FUT Heroes are a new card-type coming to FIFA 22 that represents a player and their hero moment in a specific league. Although the cards aren’t as highly rated as standard ICONS, they offer a unique chemistry bonus to any players from the same league.
These new items are meant to represent unforgettable moments from football’s past and highlight which league they took place in.

How chemistry works for FUT Hero cards
FUT Hero cards aren’t just high-rated items, they come with a unique chemistry bonus. Instead of connecting with players based on their club, these represent a nationality and an entire league.
This means they automatically provide a green club link with any player from the same league, whether it’s the Premier League for Keane or the Bundesliga for Gomez.
Here’s how EA described the latest card type in a recent blog post:
“FUT Heroes have unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment, providing a green Club link to any player within the same league as well as the usual nation link, giving you new ways to build your dream squad and recreate some of football’s most famous moments in FUT 22.”
Leaked card stats
Although we know each of the FUT Hero card OVR ratings, EA have yet to release each of the player’s individual stats.
However, as none of the nine players released so far are below 85 OVR, we can assume they’ll come with some impressive numbers. For now, it looks as if EA only plans on releasing the player’s names and OVR, so we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed that they reveal individual stats in the near future.
