We show you cheap FIFA 23 OP Icons that anybody can buy. At the end of the article we also take a look at the best and most expensive Icons, so if you have a well-filled PayPal account, you can have a look at the list with Ronaldo, Pelé and Co.

The gamble SBCs that EA throws out every few weeks are very risky, but some players naturally get the best meta cards. But you also have to be careful because some cards have real fake stats and are not good at all in game.

FIFA 23: The Cheapest OP Icons

First of all, we have to determine what makes a good Icon and how the price-performance ratio fits. We can certainly agree that baby Patrick Vieira is one of the best cards in the entire game, but the French midfielder costs 2.200.000 coins. Only very few can afford that, and that's why we look around for similarly strong cards that are significantly cheaper.

We have not included any Icon in our list that is more expensive than 200k coins. Here are the best and cheapest OP Icons in FIFA 23:

Peter SchmeichelGK


Nemanja VidićCB8575.000
Laurent BlancCB89133.000
Rio FerdinandCB88135.000
Roy KeaneCM8872.000
Claude MakéléléRM, CDM, CM87


Pavel NedvědLM, LW8999.000
Davor ŠukerST, CF


Fernando TorresST, CF88111.000
Gianfranco ZolaCF, ST90130.000
Roberto BaggioCAM, CF91130.000
Kenny DalglishST, CF, RW87143.000

We particularly like the two goalkeepers Schmeichel and Cech in this list. Having an Icon in goal is quite different from having a regular gold card.

Nedvěd is our favorite player here because he has 5-star Weak Foot and just cracking all-round values. At almost 100k, he is affordable for everyone, right?

Test these Icons yourself, they are really OP and also fit the meta. We don't always want to see Mbappé and Co on the pitches, so show Icons some love.

If you pack one of the best and most expensive Icons in FIFA 23, you'll know what Icon love means...

The Best And Most Expensive Icons In FIFA 23

If you have one of these Icons in your team, you have completed FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. It's always the same... A mate of mine finished Division Rivals in a worse league with worse rewards, but then packs the 94 OVR Mid Paolo Maldini, the most expensive defender in the game. I really don't know what to say anymore.

If you wanted to buy Maldini, you would currently have to pay 1.655.000 coins. No problem, you say? Then here are the most expensive icons on every position in FIFA 23:

Edwin van der SarGK921.220.000
Paolo MaldiniCB, LB
Roberto CarlosLB, LWB


Lothar MatthäusCDM, CB, CM
Marcel DesaillyCB


Ruud GullitCF, CM, CAM, ST
9415.000.000 (extinct)
Patrick VieiraCM, CDM


RonaldinhoLW, LM
9515.000.000 (extinct)
David Beckham
Zinedine ZidaneCM, CAM
JairzinhoRW, RM
Johan CruyffCF, ST
EusébioCF, ST


Ferenc PuskásST, CF
Éric CantonaST, CF
RonaldoST, CF

This is, of course, the crème de la crème of FUT cards. But there are supposed to be people who have enough money and coins to afford the best Icons. Gullit can play CF, CAM, CM and ST, he is after all the namesake of the "Gullit Gang", which are players who have any stat above 80 and can be used anywhere on the pitch.

Ronaldinho is by far the best and most expensive card here, the legend is even extinct on the transfer market.
