FIFA 23 players have a chance to secure World Cup Icons during the current Ultimate Team event that is celebrating the historic tournament. Here’s what to expect, including how to get World Cup Icons in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 players are enjoying the slew of World Cup content that hit Ultimate Team as the illustrious tournament kicked off. Until the World Cup comes to a close, FUT fans will be able to add some valuable cards to their squads via promos, free rewards, and SBCs.

The World Cup event will feature the first instance of Campaign Icons in FIFA 23. These boosted Icon cards are meant to honor players whose legacies are tied to the World Cup.

Here’s everything you need to know about World Cup Icons in FIFA 23 including their release date, ratings, and how to get them.

FIFA 23 World Cup Icons release date

FIFA 23 World Cup Icons made their way to Ultimate Team on Friday, November 25. World Cup Icons were the first instance of Campaign Icons we’ve seen in FIFA 23, and they arrived as a bonus promo during the World Cup event.

Team 1 arrived on November 25, Team 2 hit Ultimate Team one week later on Friday, December 2, and finally, Team 3 arrived on December 9.

What are FIFA 23 World Cup Icons & how to get them

Since World Cup Icons will be available in packs throughout the FIFA 23 promo, they will replace their Base and Mid versions.

The concept will be similar to the World Cup FUT Heroes promo that was previously active alongside Path to Glory in Ultimate Team.

While most will be available in packs and on the Transfer Market, some World Cup Icons will only be available via SBCs and Objectives. There’s no doubt that the SBCs will be incredibly expensive while the Objectives should be difficult to complete, given the stature of the cards.

Until January 4, players will also have the chance to redeem World Cup Icons through the Swaps program. Football legends Patrick Vieira and Cafu are up for grabs for 40 and 30 World Cup Swap Tokens respectively.

All FIFA 23 World Cup Icons & ratings

Every FIFA 23 World Cup Icon will boast an overall rating that is in between their Mid and Prime versions. Essentially, World Cup Icons are the second highest-rated Icon cards you can earn after Prime Icons.

For example, Prime Vieira has a rating of 91 and Base Vieira has a rating of 88, which explains his World Cup Icon rating of 90.
