While King Eric Cantona has been announced on FIFA 21, we are discussing here the complete list of new icon cards for FUT mode. The most popular mode of EA's football franchise will of course be back and icon cards will once again have a big impact on the game. Indeed, EA has announced that 100 different icons will be present in FIFA 21, approximately 10 more than on FIFA 20. Here is the complete list of new icon cards on FIFA 21.
As a reminder, the new opus of the football franchise will succeed FIFA 20 on October 9 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will also be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X later this year.
EA released its list of new icon cards for FIFA 21 on Monday, August 10 during a trailer showcasing what's new in FUT mode.
We therefore find in the 11 new icon cards:
A nice list which confirms the idea that EA wanted to integrate more players from Eastern Europe as well as players from the period 2000-2010.
You can find the 100 iconic players of FIFA 21 on the EA site. As a reminder, only the 11 players added above will be new from the FIFA 20 edition. No cards have been removed (even Van Basten is listed here after being removed last year).
As a reminder, we had made some predictions regarding the new icon cards of FIFA 21. Among these, we find Davor Šuker, Ferenc Puskas and Samuel Eto'o. Not so bad !
More diversity in the nations seems to us to be EA's objective in this list, which is why we see the presence of players from the African continent but also from Eastern Europe. Note that PES 2021 also honors former stars including David Beckham and Oliver Khan, leaving little chance for these two legends to appear on FIFA…
So much for the full list of new icon cards for the new FIFA 21 FUT mode.
