FIFA 22 is out now, meaning the four brand-new Icons and 19 new FUT Heroes are now available to use in the game.

Take a look at the legends that are available in FUT 22 below.

Who's missing?


It is unlikely that EA will add any further Icons into the game mid-season, although we did see David Beckham arrive last in FIFA 21.

There are some players we would love to see join the Icon ranks though, and fingers crossed we get them soon.

Spanish stars Andres Iniesta, David, Villa, and Xabi Alonso would all be great additions, although we will need to wait for Iniesta to call time on his playing career first!

Man City legend Vincent Kompany would also be a great addition to the game, and he would be a beast!

FIFA 22 Release Date

FIFA 22 was fully released on Friday, 1 October 2021, although many players have been playing the game for over a week.

Early Access was available from Monday, 27 September for those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition - while the EA Play Trial went live even earlier!


Class of '22

There are four brand-new Icons available in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, with England's Wayne Rooney arguably the most exciting of the lot.

His former Manchester United teammate Robin van Persie has also joined the ranks.

CLASS OF 92 - Four legends make their debut in FUT 22

Iker Casillas and Cafu are the two other legends in the game, and both are great players to have on the roster!

Cafu has joined fellow Brazilian Carlos Alberto as the best right-back currently available in the game.


Cafu (88 - 90 - 93)

GOAT - Cafu is regarded at the best right-back ever

Quite frankly one of the best right-backs of all time, we are surprised it took this long for Cafu to feature in the game.

Cafu's 88 OVR card currently costs around 550,000 coins in FUT 22, while his 90 OVR will cost closer to 900,000!


Iker Casillas (87 - 89 - 92)

SUPER STOPPER - Casillas is the most successful Real Madrid GK ever

Incredible GK Reflexes are the pick of Iker Casillas' stats in FUT 22, so he will be fantastic in one on one situations.

One of the more affordable Icons, you can add the base version of Casillas to your club for less than 300,000 coins.


Robin van Persie (87 - 89 - 91)

GOAL MACHINE - RVP's base card is also his quickest

A true goal machine, Robin van Persie scored 30 goals in a Premier League season before making the switch from Arsenal to Manchester United.

RVP's base Icon is actually more expensive than his 89 OVR card, but both will cost you a hefty fee!


Wayne Rooney (86 - 88 - 91)

WONDERKID - Rooney burst onto the scene as a teenager

What a player Wayne Rooney was. Rooney was arguably at his best earlier on in his career, which is reflected in his base card.

All his cards cost at least 1 million coins, so you best get saving.


All new FUT Heroes

EA has introduced the FUT Heroes to Ultimate Team for the very first time and they are in the game now.

EA Sports stated it will "Celebrate some of football’s most memorable players" by featuring "new items that represent the unforgettable moments that turned them into fan favourites."

David Ginola looks to be the standout card so far, but we love the look of Joe Cole and Abedi Pele too!
