FUT Hero cards were a great addition to Ultimate Team in FIFA 22, and their numbers are continuing to grow in FIFA 23.

Find out all you need to know about FUT Heroes in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team below.

Latest - Additional Hero Added

Before FIFA 23 was released, a list of new FUT Heroes was leaked revealing all the additional players set to come in Ultimate Team.

When the new FUT Heroes were officially announced, all the names leaked were included, apart from one - Ledley King.

There has been speculation for months whether he would actually appear in the game, furthered when he was able to be searched for on the FUT Transfer Market, yet he still didn't appear.

Then, on Friday, 6 January, King finally appeared in the game, available for free as a loan version via the Moments Store, with his Base card also added to the player pool in packs.

What are FUT Heroes?

FUT Hero cards were new items in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team that introduced some retired fan favourite players to the game.

Initially, these were viewed by the FIFA community as one level below an Icon, however, with upgrades given throughout the season, some of the FUT Heroes become better than many Icons.

MASSIVE GAINS - The FUT Hero roster has expanded massively in FIFA 23

There were 19 FUT Hero cards released in FUT 22, with 21 new FUT Heroes coming at the start of FUT 23 - with an additional one joining mid-campaign - so there are now 41 on the roster.

All the FUT Heroes have a Base version, with some given upgraded FIFA World Cup FUT Heroes during the World Cup campaign in FUT 23, with more boosted versions likely to come in further promos.

Chemistry Change

With the chemistry re-work introduced in FUT 23, FUT Heroes now work in a slightly different way.

If they are played in the correct position they will always have full chemistry themselves.

Then, they will provide two chemistry points to any player that shares the same league as them.

There are two confirmed card types for FUT Heroes, a Base version and a World Cup version.
