Each of these Icons has four different versions, including:

  • Base Card
    • This card represents a moment early in the Icon’s career when they were already showing flashes of brilliance.
  • Mid Card
    • This card has higher stats than the Base Card and represents a time when the Icon pushed his way to be the best in the game.
    • Usually, their stats are in the high 80s or low 90s and are meant to reflect that, at this point, they were being regarded as one of the best of the current era.
  • Prime Card
    • The Prime Card is the Icon at its peak. The stats are higher than both the Base Card and Mid card.
  • Moment Card
    • The Moment Card is the best possible version of a FUT Icon. It is a moment in history that cemented them as one of the greatest football players of all time.
    • These cards have not been revealed yet, but we will update this article when they release.
