FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Hero cards: Player ratings, chemistry & prices
FUT Heroes have made their debut in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and they’re some of the most desirable cards in the entire game. We’ve broken down each player’s rating, cost, and how chemistry works.
Each new season of Ultimate Team comes with a host of new special cards to improve players’ squads and give them the upper hand on their opponents.
From prestigious ICONS to the recurring Team of the Week, there are plenty of high-value cards to hunt for.
FIFA 22 is no exception, but the release of FUT Heroes had the community particularly excited.
What are they, and how do they work? We’ve got the lowdown below.
FIFA 22 FUT Heroes
EA has released 19 FUT Heroes in FIFA 22, all of which are live in packs throughout the full season.
Big names from many of the world’s most significant leagues are included, from the great David Ginola to the baby-faced assassin – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Although these cards used to hold incredible value on the FUT market, the majority have dropped in value and are now available for reasonable prices.

What are Hero cards in FIFA 22?
The latest special card that made its way into FUT this year, Hero cards can most easily be described as cult heroes.
These players perhaps never quite reached icon status in world football but were fan favorites for their respective clubs and leagues.

Each Hero player is tied to a specific season or a moment that solidified their status as a great.
For example, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his late winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final, or Clint Dempsey for being the joint-top scorer for the US national team.
FUT Heroes chemistry
If you’re lucky enough to pack one of these special cards, they function in your team in a similar way to ICONS.
The main difference is that each Hero comes with a league they are associated with, so they only offer chemistry links to other players from that league. They also provide links to players of the same nationality, just like other cards.

For example, Fernando Morientes would give a green strong link to anyone currently playing in La Liga and an orange soft link to any Spaniards who play outside of Spain’s top league.
Heroes can be an ideal way to build a hybrid squad with multiple leagues without paying the premium of an ICON.
Future FUT Heroe predictions
The community has received the first batch of FUT Heroes, with the likes of Ginola and Robbie terrorizing defenses across the modes.
EA is yet to confirm if these will be the only Heroes coming to FIFA 22, but fans would be eager for more if they were released.
With this in mind, we’ve put together the players we think are deserving of a Hero card if a second batch drops:
- Peter Crouch (Premier League)
- Park Ji-Sung (Premier League)
- Matt Le Tissier (Premier League)
- Eric Abidal (La Liga)
- David Villa (La Liga)
- Juninho (Ligue 1)
- Elber (Bundesliga)
- Claudio Pizzaro (Bundesliga)
- Daniele De Rossi (Serie A)
- Luca Toni (Serie A)
- Dirk Kuyt (Eredivisie)
Players who pre-ordered the ultimate edition of FIFA 22 before August 11th should have received a free FUT Hero card in December to slot straight into their teams.
