FUT Birthday Icon Leaks

This year we are also getting Icons for the FUT Birthday promo. The loading screen in FUT already shows this. After the success of the World Cup Icons and the TOTY Icons it's no surprise that these famous players return for a third time this year.

One player has already been released by EA: We will see a new version for George Best.

STFerenc Puskás95
RWGeorge Best94


Lothar Matthäus94
STIan Rush93
STEric Cantona92

Rui Costa


Additional loading screens have hinted at two other players in this list: Ferenc Puskás and Eric Cantona. We really hope that at least one of them will be released as an Icon SBC... everybody would go nuts!

FutSheriff leaked that we will only see Icons that either got 5 Stars WF or 5 Stars SM (while Jairzinho obviously has 5/5). But we could see a Rivaldo with 5 Stars Skills – which would be great! Sheriff first said he will come as 5/5 as well.

As soon as new leaks drop, we'll update this article. In just a couple of hours, we'll know how many players FutSheriff correctly leaked this time. Until then, you should definitely check out this week's Marquee Matchups SBC and get yourself another FUT Birthday Token!
