The latest FIFA game may not be here yet, but it's already time to look ahead to the future stars. Seeing which players reach the top of the FIFA 23 ratings is always the best part of the pre-launch FIFA fun, especially seeing which of your club's stars get an upgrade or downgrade, and the fun should start soon.

In this FIFA 23 guide, we'll break down everything you need to know about the upcoming ratings reveal. That includes when we anticipate the week-long promotional event to start, as well as which players will likely appear at the top of the ratings, pushing into the 90s.

Elsewhere, check out all of the latest news on FIFA 23 as it comes in. We've also got details on when the web app should go live for you to kickstart your Ultimate Team journey, as well as how you can pre order the game, and when the beta will start.


When is the FIFA 23 ratings top 100 reveal?

We still have a little while to wait until the FIFA 23 top 100 is announced. For reference, the FIFA 22 top ratings were announced in early September 2021, just a few weeks before the game's release.

Considering we don't even have a reveal trailer for FIFA 23 yet, the top 100 reveal will likely come down much further in the promotional campaign. Expect to hear the first murmurs in September 2022, before EA dripfeeds us with daily ratings for top players in the weeks leading up to release.

Once we have more details on when the FIFA 23 ratings reveal is due to take place, we'll update this guide.

Who will be the best players in FIFA 23?

When it comes to which players will have the highest ratings in FIFA 23, it's hard to do more than speculate given we're still a few months away from release. Nonetheless, there are some familiar faces who will no doubt make their way into the top rankings upon release.

Read on to see a few of our predictions, showing the player, their FIFA 22 rating, and where they might be in FIFA 23.

As you'll be able to tell, our rankings aren't definitive, but give a good impression of how the ratings may look compared to last year's game. Those are of course only a small segment of the thousands of players in the FIFA roster, and don't include breakout stars from last season including Conor Gallagher and Anthony Elanga.


Once we have some more details on the top 100 rankings in the next few months, we'll update this guide to show you which players are towards the top. A few of them are already nailed on, however. Expect the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Kylian Mbappé to make up the top three, unless EA decides to change things drastically.

That's it for our look at the FIFA 23 player rankings! Be sure to check back closer to launch when we'll update this guide with all the latest info. Until them, feel free to read up on the changes to FIFA 23 icons this year.
