FUT Hero cards are rare items available in Ultimate Team, given to cult heroes and borderline legends of the past. They were first added in FIFA 22, featuring the likes of Diego Milito, Abedi Pele, and Fernando Morientes.

These have similar stats to their previous base cards in games gone by – and can be upgraded during the year.

EA SPORTS are expected to bring back all of the players included in FUT Heroes last year, as well as additional names, which will likely be announced in a staggered way throughout July/August.

FIFA 23 FUT Hero card leaks

John Arne Riise – Premier League

On June 4, leaker FutZone revealed the first Hero card to be added to the mix – Liverpool’s John Arne Riise.

The Norwegian fullback scored some scorching goals for the Reds, and played a huge role in the Anfield club’s fifth European Cup triumph. While Riise actually missed his penalty in the 2005 shootout against AC Milan, his celebrations will live long in the memory.

Peter Crouch – Premier League

On June 10, FifaTradingRomania and FUT Sheriff shared that Peter Crouch is joining the Heroes lineup. The six-foot-seven target man is a cult figure in English football, after netting 108 Premier League goals and bringing the robot dance back into fashion.

Yaya Toure – Premier League

On June 8, Fut Sheriff claimed Yaya Toure was set for inclusion.

Claudio Marchisio – Serie A

Next up, an Italian stallion… Former Juventus midfielder, Claudio Marchisio.

Lucio – Serie A

On June 9, FutSheriff claimed Lucio is set to be a Hero Card in FIFA 23. Lucio was part of a treble-winning Inter Milan side in 2010 that defeated his former club Bayern Munich 2-0 in the Champions League Final.

 

It’s worth noting that leaks can come from accurate and inaccurate sources, so while these give an indication of who may be included in the FIFA 23 Hero set, take it with a pinch of salt until rumors are confirmed.

How to get free FUT Hero cards

It is expected that a promotional FUT Hero card will be available for FIFA 23 pre-orders, if placed before the deadline. This would reflect the offer for Ultimate Edition in the previous game, as well as Ones to Watch cards for some players too.

These free cards will be released in December, 2022, if the timetable is kept to.

In addition to that, FUT Hero Squad Building Challenges will be rolled out during the game’s lifecycle, allowing FUT Club Owners to get their hands on some cult heroes. For example, last year there was a Player Pick SBC.
