HERO TURNED MANAGER - Ole enters FIFA 22 as FUT Hero

FUT Heroes revealed for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

FIFA 22 has finally started to give us real news, and that began with the reveal trailer!


FIFA 22 is set for an official release date of October 1, 2021, and that means players can start building their Ultimate Team in less than three months.

FUT Heroes will get that started, and EA Sports has 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."

On top of that, they'll have unique league-specific chemistry tied to their hero moment, which will allow a green Club link to any player within the same league, on top of the usual nation link.


Every FUT Heroes Player Revealed

While there are likely to be more added later, we've also learned about several of the FUT Heroes players that will be coming when FIFA 22 is released.

We've included all of the currently released names here, and you can view a more detailed explanation of each player's "hero moment" in this post by EA Sports.

We also know that more FUT Heroes should be revealed in August, so this is just the beginning.

While there were several amazing goalkeepers from South America that made their mark in the 1990s, Campos stood out as a sweeper-keeper and holding a clean sheet in the second leg of his team's title-winning match in 1991 inspired his FUT Heroes card.

FUT HEROES: This one is for Fernando, even if EA put "Fernardo"

For Fernando Morientes, we head back to remembering the 2000 UEFA Champions League Final, and it's his trademark back post header that put Los Blancos on their way to an eighth European title which makes him part of FUT Heroes.

As a national hero, Sami Al-Jaber led Saudi Arabia in three different FIFA World Cups (1998, 2002, and 2006), and it's his performance from 2006 against Tunisia that helped make him part of FUT Heroes.

While there's no doubt Keane caused problems for every defence he came up against, it was his performances in 2008 that helped lead the Spurs to their last League Cup win which inspired his FUT 22 Heroes card.

Arguably the greatest player that Ghana has ever produced, Abedi Pele was amazing enough to earn the nickname "Pele" after the Brazilian icon, and he proved it in the 1993 UEFA Champions League final where he assisted the winning goal and proved himself worthy of FUT Heroes.

FUT HEROES: Dempsey's MLS performances come to Ultimate Team

There's no doubt that Clint Dempsey has been undeniable in every league he's been a part of, including being the joint top scorer in US Men's National Team history, but his performances in Seattle and hat trick in 2014 have inspired this FUT Heroes inclusion.

We also know that more FUT Heroes should be revealed in August, and don't miss out on the latest about Icons in FIFA 22.
