EA FC 24 is slowly building up the hype ahead of release as we start to learn more and more about the game. Today, EA Sports revealed the first five hero cards that will be in Ultimate Team at release. Here’s every card that has been announced so far, and how you can get one for free on day one.

What are Heroes?

Hero cards are similar to Icons, they are retired players who return to Ultimate Team with a special card. However, Heroes are players who didn’t quite achieve the same as an Icon, but were seen as legends at their club or country. This means that Hero cards have lower stats than Icon cards do, and they are also more restrictive when it comes to chemistry, needing to link with a league or country like a normal card does.

Heroes first arrived into FIFA Ultimate Team in FIFA 22, where we saw players such as Tim Cahil, Mario Gomez, Robbie Keane and Clint Dempsey awarded Hero items.
