ICONS are some of the most prestigious players in all of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. EA has finally confirmed that a new batch of FIFA 22 ICON Swaps is coming to Ultimate Team for players to earn valuable rewards.

Of all the special cards found in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, ICONS are some of the most valuable and sought after.

Not only are ICONS some of the highest-rated players in the game, but these footballing legends also offer incredibly useful chemistry links to help build hybrid squads.

ICON Swaps are EA’s way of giving everyone the chance to use these incredible cards every year. Here’s everything we know about them so far in FIFA 22.

What are FIFA 22 ICON Swaps?

FIFA 22 ICONS

ICON Swaps are tokens earned by completing various SBCs and objectives which can be submitted for high-value rewards.

Every edition of ICON Swaps comes with a series of rewards, each of which asks for more and more tokens.

Objectives are usually released gradually over the course of the season. This means players have more time to grind out as many as they want before moving on to the next batch.
