FIFA 23 Icons: Jairzinho running after scoring a goal

FIFA 23 Icons are generally considered the pinnacle of Ultimate Team cards; legendary players from years gone by that enable you to build the best team in the football game from both past and present. You can answer such questions as can Lampard and Gerrard really work as a midfield duo? Was Pele really as good as people say?

This year, Ultimate Team has changed how the chemistry system works, with none of your players being penalised for being out of place. Icons don’t have any restrictions when it comes to their own chemistry, giving significant boosts to anyone who shares their country of origin. Bagging yourself an Icon not only improves the ability of your Ultimate Team but gives a ton of free chemistry points to the rest of the squad.

FIFA 23 removed Icons

While most of the classic Icons can still be found in FIFA 23, a few won’t be making an appearance. Whether it’s for legal reasons, shenanigans outside of football, or simply that they’ve been transferred from Icon to FUT Hero, these are the players who won’t feature this year:

  • Diego Maradona
  • Ryan Giggs
  • Deco
  • Pep Guardiola
  • Marc Overmars
  • Filippo Inzaghi
  • Hidetoshi Nakata (Changed to FUT Hero)
  • Jay-Jay Okocha (Changed to FUT Hero)

That’s every Icon you can find in FIFA 23, with the baby and mid versions available in packs right now. The Prime Icons usually release much later on in the game cycle. For more special cards, you should check out the list of FUT Heroes for something a little more attainable. Might as well share your Ultimate Team with a friend, and the new crossplay features allow you to do just that.
