Latest News - Solskjaer and Ricken Confirmed
FIFA 22 was kept under wraps at the EA Play Showcase this evening, though there was a little bit of news on the FIFA Ultimate Team front.
UEFA Champions League legends Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Lars Ricken have both been confirmed as members of the first ever FUT Heroes release.
The UCL winning pair will be available as part of the FIFA 22 release.
What are FUT Heroes?
Similar to the ICONs seen in years gone by, FUT Heroes is a set of cards dedicated to some of football's most memorable players.
The players who feature have been at the centre of some unforgettable moments in footballing history that turned them into fan favourites.
Unlike ICONs, the FUT Heroes will be attributed to the league in which they became a fan favourite, but there is a brand new league-specific chemistry link that compliments the cards.
Each of the FUT Heroes will come with unique league-specific chemistry that will provide them with a green Club link to any player within their league, regardless of club or nation.
Nation links will still work in the same way, with a medium link between any FUT Hero and their national compatriots.
Who are the FUT Heroes?
The first eleven FUT Heroes have been officially confirmed, and they are as follows:
- Mario Gomez (88 OVR) - Bundesliga & Germany
- Tim Cahill (85 OVR) - Premier League & New Zealand
- Diego Milito (88 OVR) - Serie A & Argentina
