FIFA 22: 9 new ICONs potentially revealed


Nine new ICON players, who are set to debut on FIFA 22, may have been revealed.

A recent update to FIFA online has given the gaming community an insight into who they may able to use on the pitch in the upcoming instalment of the video game franchise.

Before the release of every title, fans speculate which new additions developer EA Sports will add.

A lot of this hype often centres around the Ultimate Team game mode, and especially which former footballing legends will be added. 

Over 100 icons were available on FIFA 21, and as the focus switches to the new game, fans may already know who they could be using to dominate their opponents.

The leak was spotted by FIFA Twitch streamer KingLanpard as FIFA online got a new update that included nine new faces, including some huge names.
