FIFA 22 has introduced a new type of Ultimate Team item to the game in the form of FUT Hero Cards — but which players were 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, as per usual, building their very own starting XI in Ultimate Team, FIFA’s flagship mode since the early 2010s.
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 in 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.”
