What are FUT Heroes cards?

The Hero cards in Ultimate Team mode are available rare items attributed to cult heroes and legends from soccer’s past.

These cards were added for the first time in FIFA 22, featuring players like Diego Milito, Abedi Pele and Fernando Morientes.

They have similar stats to the base cards from previous games and can be upgraded throughout the year.

FIFA 23 FUT Heroes cards leaks

John Arne Riise – Premier League

On July 5, FutBull revealed a Hero card that is expected to be added in FIFA 23: Liverpool’s John Arne Riise.

The Norwegian fullback has scored some standout goals for the Reds and played a huge role in the club’s fifth European Cup title. Although Riise missed his penalty in the 2005 penalty shootout against AC Milan, his celebrations will be remembered for a long time.

Peter Crouch – Premier League

On June 10, FifaTradingRomania and Fut Sheriff announced that Peter Crouch would be joining the Heroes. The 6’4″ striker is a cult figure in English soccer, having scored 108 Premier League goals and brought the robot dance back into fashion in celebration.

Lucio – Serie A

On June 9, Fut Sheriff said that Lucio would be a Hero card in FIFA 23. Lucio was part of the Inter Milan team that achieved the treble in 2010, including a 2-0 victory over his former club, Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Javier Mascherano – La Liga Santander

On August 3, the same leaker announced that Javier Mascherano, the former Barcelona player will also have his Hero card in FIFA 23.

The Argentine who was able to play both central defender and defensive midfielders won the Spanish championship five times, as well as the mythical Champions League twice. He was also a finalist in the World Cup in 2014.

It is important to note that leaks can come from specific sources or not. So, while this information gives an idea of who might be in the FIFA 23 Hero promo, take it with a grain of salt until these rumors are confirmed.

How to get free Hero FUT cards?

If you order the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 before August 21, then you will receive a Hero card.

If the event schedule is met, then this free card should be awarded to you in December 2022.

In addition to this, DCEs will be rolled out over the course of the game’s lifecycle, allowing players to get their hands on certain cult heroes.

A FIFA 23 Heroes and Marvel collaboration leaked?

Just after the announcement of the first batch of FIFA 23 Heroes cards, rumors started circulating about a possible crossover with Marvel. These rumors were sparked after an image surfaced in which we could see the FIFA 23 and Marvel logos side by side.

This directly led to a lot of speculation about the possibility of superheroes like Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man making a surprise appearance in Ultimate Team.

While it’s unlikely that we’ll see the Incredible Hulk appear on the field during a FUT Champs game, it does open the door for some interesting Tifos and cosmetics.

Of course, at the moment this is just a rumor, but if it turns out to be true, then we can expect EA to make a lot of noise about it as we approach the launch of FIFA 23.

There you have it, you now know all about the FIFA 23 Heroes event. To make sure you don’t miss out on any news about this upcoming opus, be sure to follow us on Twitter @DexertoFGB.
