Latest - What's next for FUT Heroes?

FUT Heroes have been a great addition to FIFA 22, and there has already been lots of talk circulating on social media about which players deserve to be given Hero cards in FIFA 23.

The FIFA community views FUT Heroes as one level below an ICON in Ultimate Team, so they are valuable cards within the game.

FUT Heroes have unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment, providing a green Club link to any player within the same league as well as the usual nation link.

Find out everything about the potential FIFA 23 FUT Heroes right here.

The statement reads "There may be additional versions made available as part of select FUT 22 Campaigns and Programs."

This leaves the door open for further cards if they prove popular, but they could just as easily be canned if they don't win over the FUT community.

Same league and same nationality will get you the best links, while just being in the same league will provide strong links too.

Same nationality but a different league will be okay with an orange link, and of course, nothing in common will result in a pesky red link.

Every FUT Heroes Player Revealed

Take a look at all the FIFA 22 FUT heroes below.

Mario Gomez (OVR 88)

The FUT Heroes version of Mario Gomez will celebrate his fearsome striking, and especially look at his setup of the legendary goal that brought VfB Stuttgart their third Bundesliga title.

Tim Cahill (OVR 85)

For Tim Cahill, his dangerous heading and various finishes lead to the overhead kick he scored in 2007 that has inspired this FUT Heroes version in FIFA 22.

Jorge Campos (OVR 87)

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.

Diego Milito (OVR 88)

As a classic striker, Diego Milito made his mark for some time in LaLiga, but it was his UEFA Champions League final performance that fueled this deserving nod as part of FUT Heroes in FIFA 22.

Fernando Morientes (OVR 89)

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.

Sami Al-Jaber (OVR 86)

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.

Robbie Keane (OVR 86)

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.

Abedi Pele (OVR 89)

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.

Clint Dempsey (OVR 85)

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.

Lars Ricken (OVR 85)

The man to call upon when you need a goal! Former Borussia Dortmund star Lars Ricken will be available as a Bundesliga Hero in the CAM position.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (OVR 86)

Ivan Cordoba (OVR 87)

Former Colombian international Ivan Cordoba won't be the tallest centre-back in FUT 22, but he should be reasonably mobile.

Freddie Ljungberg (OVR 86)

Another of Arsenal's Invincibles will make their mark in FUT 22 with Swedish midfielder Freddie Ljungberg added to the ranks.

Jurgen Kohler (OVR 89)

German powerhouse Jurgen Kohler is the second Borussia Dortmund legend to be confirmed in the list of FUT Heroes for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

Jerzy Dudek (OVR 86)
