FIFA 23: GIANT Icon SBC incoming for Real Madrid legend in FUT 23

FIFA 23 is here and the Ultimate Team content is coming thick and fast now.

The Ones to Watch (OTW) promo has been and gone, allowing the annual Road to the Knockouts (RTTK) campaign to take centre stage.

EA has released plenty of awesome player SBCs over the course of the past couple of weeks, but it's now time to ramp things up.

The first Icon SBC of FUT 23 is set to arrive soon, with a certain Spanish goalkeeper reportedly in the running.

Sensational Spaniard

According to the reliable Ultimate Team leaker, FutSheriff on Twitter, former Real Madrid and Spain international GK Iker Casillas will be the man selected as the first Icon SBC of FIFA 23.

During his highly successful career in Madrid, Casillas won all major club titles, including five La Liga titles, four Supercopa de Espana titles, two Copa del Rey titles, three UEFA Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups, two Intercontinental Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Spanish GK is widely considered one of the greatest 'keepers of all time.

As stated in the Tweet above, it looks like it will be Iker Casillas's Mid Icon version will be the one that EA releases in the coming days.

The 'goalie's 89 OVR Mid Icon card boasts 91 positioning, 90 diving and 88 reflexes and 88 handling.

This card currently sells for 205,000 coins on PlayStation / Xbox and 300,000 coins on PC.

You can expect the SBC cost to come in under his market value as the card you unlock will of course be untradeable.
