There have been some fantastic player cards to choose from over the past couple of weeks following last week’s FIFA 23 Team of the Year Final 11 announcement. And it will be more of the same this week, with FIFA releasing ICONS Team 2 and other excellent FUT items.
This week we have another six new additions to the Team of the Year following the initial six, Team 1 Players, announced on January 20.

What are FIFA 23 ICONS Team of the Year Cards?
It’s FUT23 items that can be purchased in packs in the in-game store or by completing SBC. These players have influenced the game we love significantly at some point in their careers.
These are supposed to be some of the best cards in FIFA Ultimate Team’s history.
