You have the opportunity to unlock selected FUT Icons by completing certain tasks. Each Icon card in the Icon Swaps costs a certain number of so-called Player Tokens.
If you complete various in-game challenges, you will be rewarded with tokens. You will need these to get the coveted FIFA 21 Icon cards. The stronger the corresponding legend, the more Player Tokens are needed.

Which Icons Are Included?
The list of players you can unlock in Icon Swaps 2 is currently unknown. There are also no Icon Swaps 2 leaks yet, so we'll have to be surprised.
What About Icon Moments Cards?
The fourth and strongest versions of FUT 21 Icons, the so-called Prime Icon Moments cards, were leaked during the week, at least in terms of images. They will find their way into FIFA 21 soon.
EA Sports has not yet revealed whether the Icon Moments cards will be available at the start of Icon Swaps 2 or if they will in anyway be part of FUT Winter Refresh.
