As legends of the English game are being added Premier League Hall of Fame, FIFA 21 players may be wondering if EA SPORTS will build upon their Ultimate Team ICON card selection and release more upgraded cards.
The Premier League Hall of Fame has been a concept in the pipeline for some years, commemorating some of the stars that made England’s top flight the most exciting in the world to watch.
With the ramped up coverage from Sky Sports and BT Sports in recent years, millions of fans across the world watch the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and others every single week.
In April 2021, the Premier League started to name some of the game’s biggest icons as part of the coveted list. Usually the biggest happenings in the sport find their way onto the FUT content schedule, whether it be European nights in the Champions League, flashbacks to the past, or even Man of the Match awards. So, what about the HOF?
Is FIFA 21 getting Hall of Fame cards?
At the time of writing, there has been no indication that EA SPORTS plans to incorporate Hall of Fame cards into Ultimate Team.
That said, many names on the list are already in the game – which begs the question about whether or not they will surprise us when voting closes. The likes of Chelsea’s Didier Drogba, Man United’s Roy Keane, and Arsenal’s Sol Campbell are on the list – with just Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer confirmed as inaugural inductees.
