EA SPORTS will add a new set of ICON cards in FIFA 23, adding to the star-studded list assembled over a few years. Here’s everything we know about the new cards, including leaks, confirmed names, and more details. 

Last year, fans were treated to not just legendary players, but FUT Heroes were also thrown into the mix.

These two sets of cards represent some of football’s best players from years gone by, and following some Hero leaks, details about Legends coming to FIFA 23 have also surfaced.

Here’s everything we know so far, from leaked cards to confirmed ICONs.

FIFA 23 ICON leaks

Romario – Brazil

The first name touted for inclusion in the FIFA 23 ICON list is a Brazilian icon, Romario. The striker scored over 750 goals in his career but these days, he does have some involvement in politics, as a Member of the Federal Senate of Brazil.

The leak was provided by FutZone, who later claimed such political involvement could rule him out of the running.

As is the case with any reportedly leaked details, the accuracy of the information will not be made clear until official sources offer clarification.

Therefore, we would advise this is taken with a pinch of salt for the time being.

Wayne Rooney joined the ICON club last year, and more will be heading to FIFA 23.

Two ICON cards were removed, for different reasons, in the previous installment and are not expected to return, at the time of writing. These are Marc Overmars and Diego Maradona.
