FUT Heroes explained

FUT Heroes are players who didn't make it to the rank of FIFA 23 Icons.

However, FUT Heroes are stars who have made a major impact in their clubs or leagues and are associated with one specific event.

For example, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer received his Hero card for his UEFA Champions League final-winning goal for Man United in 1999.

For each new FUT Hero in FIFA 23, there are two versions of their FUT Hero item: a base version and a FIFA World Cup version.

The normal version celebrates them for club moments whilst the upgraded World Cup version celebrates their special international moments.
