As the Team of the Year (TOTY) campaign rolls on, FIFA 23 players are wondering where on earth Icon Swaps have gotten to!

Of course, EA has brought us a World Cup Swaps program and the Winter Wildcards Swaps program, but nothing compares to Icon Swaps.

Icon Swaps is a promo that runs multiple times during the FUT calendar, allowing players to earn tokens through gameplay objectives that can be used to claim Icons and pack rewards via SBCs.

So, find out when the first set of Icon Swaps will be released in FUT 23 below.

Release Date

FUT 23's Icon Swaps 1 release date has not yet been confirmed, but we have a pretty good idea of when it will arrive, judging from the previous years' releases.

The first set of Icon Swaps arrived in previous FIFAs on the following dates:

  • FIFA 22 - December 15
  • FIFA 21 - December 12

However, with the arrival of multiple different swaps programs, Icon Swaps 1 seems to have been delayed.

It now looks like we'll be getting Future Stars swaps before Icon Swaps too.
