Icon Swaps mean sweating, but at the same time, also free legends that upgrade every team. With the feature, you can play different modes and choose one (or more) of the Icons offered. But when will the Icon Swaps come in FIFA 22? Here's all you need to know!

Two Icon Swaps have already started in FUT this year – now the third round of swaps is just around the corner! Everything we know from our favorite leakers even before the release... you can find out right here!


Icon Swaps 3 Is Live! All You Need To Know About Rewards & Tokens

Shortly before the start of the Team of the Season in FIFA 22 and Warmup Series, new packs had been found in the game code which strongly pointed towards Icon Swaps. As of Monday, April 25, Icon Swaps 3 has actually gone live and brought some hefty rewards to FUT.

The most important thing that every honorable FIFA player has to know now: the Golden Goal rule. What is it? Don't worry, we'll explain it to you. Well, everyone wants to earn tokens as fast as they can and don't want to play for hours on end when they should have already won a match.

Therefore, the community has established the rule that the player who scores the first goal automatically wins the match. The opponent leaves instantly, so completing the challenges doesn't take too long. If you also have some dignity and want to help other players to get their tokens asap, then you should follow this rule as well! You will have good karma too, I promise.


Gullit, Matthäus And Carlos In Icon Swaps 3

The list of icons is really impressive this time around! Gullit is one of the strongest legends in the game, Roberto Carlos is simply a phenomenon, and Kenny Dalglish is more popular than almost any other player in FUT!

When Will The Icon Swaps Come In Ultimate Team?

What are the Icon Swaps? With the Icon Swaps you have to do various tasks that are shown in the menu. Mostly it is about winning a certain number of games with a league team in Squad Battles or Division Rivals. If you managed to do this with a team, you will receive a swap / token (a white player card). If you have a certain number of tokens, you can buy an Icon. The Icons and their prices are then displayed at the SBCs - an Icon pack is usually also included.


Do we already have a date when the Icon Swaps will be integrated into FIFA 22? YESSS! The first batch of Icon Swaps came on December 15th.

In FIFA 21 EA also integrated the feature at the beginning of December... this year a lot of leaks expected a later release date. FIFPlay wrongly assumed that we will get Icon Swaps 1 on February 18, 2022. That would have been surprisingly late. The second icon swaps came on February 21, 2022.


Are The Icon Swaps Worth It?

Definitely. At least if they come into the game as early as possible. Here you can play different modes such as Squad Battles and Division Rivals, get cool rewards and great Icons - for free! This is exactly what is so nice about the feature of getting a certain legend / pack without having to spend coins.

The best tip we can give won't blow you away, but still: Save your tokens and get some great stuff! As simple as that.
