At each edition of FIFA Ultimate Team , EA Sports adds new ICONS (previously called Legends), going to expand the previous roster. This year there are interesting new additions like Zidane, Drogba, Pirlo and Zambrotta and Kakà (announced much later and surprisingly).
Also this year, there will be the three classic versions for each icon (Baby, Medium and Prime), plus the Prime Moments versions for EVERYONE (last year were not released for all), version which represents the last stage of evolution, introduced for the first time last year.
But that is not all. Official information on the availability, release method and Icon SBCs has just been leaked. You will discover everything on this page, which we will keep up to date because there will be new announcements over time.

FIFA 20 Ultimate Team – new methods of release and date of availability of the versions of the Icons
EA Sports announced last night that there will be news regarding the frequency with which the Icons and their versions will be released. In particular, initially only Baby and Medium versions will be available. Later the Prime and only the Prime Moments by mid-year
Here is the release scheme:
And here is the official announcement of the EA Sports Community Manager:
ICONE versions in FUT 20
That said, let's get into the way ICONS will be implemented in FUT 20 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (the Switch version is not mentioned!)
One of the key objectives we have with ICONS in FUT 20 is communicating as clearly as possible to allow players to plan their FUT trip. That being said, we know you want more information on the different versions of ICON and when they will be available. In short, there will be 4 unique versions for each of 89 ICONS in FUT 20 which will be available during certain times of the year.
Baby : this version, also called Baby, often (but not always) reflects a period in the career of the player in which they were still developing and did not yet have reached their full potential. This version will be available in packages from the start of the trial version of EA & Origin Access until mid-December 2019. The selected basic ICONS will be available in the FUT draft during this same period.
Medium : this version often (but not always) reflects ICONS later in their career, when they had to adapt their style of play to stay close to the maximum of their potential. This version will be available in packages from the start of the trial version of EA & Origin Access until mid-February 2020. The selected intermediate ICONS will be available in DRAFT FUT during this same period.
Prime : this version often (but not always) reflects an era of the ICON career in which they were at the peak of their skills and abilities. This version will be available in packages from mid-December 2019 until the end of FUT 20. The selected Prime ICONS will be available in Draft FUT during this same period.
Prime Moments (Prime Moments) : while the Basic, Mid and Prime versions tell the stories of the career of an ICON, this version focuses on a historical performance truly memorable in the career of an ICON that brought them to one of the greatest of all time. This version will be introduced in packages from February 2020 until the end of FUT 20. This is the highest rated version of an ICON in FUT 20. All the FUT ICONS 20 will receive a Moment object .
Because an ICON can have many moments during its historic career, theirs Moment version previously released in FUT 19 will not necessarily be the same version released in FUT 20 . The ICONS Prime Moments will be available in the Drafts during this same period. With this version of the different versions of ICON entering and leaving FUT packages 20, we tried not only to encourage a greater variety in the formation of the team in FUT 20, but also to ensure greater availability of the Prime and Moments versions of ICON on the transfer market once released in the packages.
ICONS and SBC
Another goal we have in FUT 20 is to make ICONS more accessible to as many FUT players as possible
From FUT 18, we released individual SBC ICONs that required other ICON cards to complete. We used the ICON requirements to prevent the SBC requirements from being excessively long and also to alleviate other points of market deflation. However, what we have seen is that many ICONS (in particular the basic ICONS) were seen and evaluated more as tools to complete the SBC than as players on your team. It was not the experience we wanted to create.
Both individual and pick ICON SBCs also involved additional “problems”. Throughout the cycle, many of the major ICONS, as well as the ICON SBC requirements, have experienced strong price fluctuations.
This obviously made it more difficult to design individual SBC ICONs, making the choice of requirements consistent with market trends increasingly complex
Therefore, given the objectives we set ourselves to achieve for ICONS and the new FUT features this year, we have revisited the way in which ICONS will be used in SBC in FUT 20 to create a more balanced system for a wider spectrum of players:
ICONS will not be used as requirements in the SBC
As an additional measure, the discount price of an ICON will be lowered by 102. 00 0 believed FUT a 63. 750 FUT credits .
SBC ICON Packs guaranteed will continue to be released on FUT 20.
These guaranteed ICBC SBCs will give players the opportunity to earn the specific version of any ICON. There will be no SBC ICON for a specific player or via player pick in FUT 20. We will replace individual ICB SBCs with a brand new Icon Swap program detailed below. ICONS exchange in FUT 20
In addition to being able to buy ICONS on the transfer market or find them in packages, in FUT 20 we are introducing the ICON Swaps, a new way to allow players to unlock certain ICONS in exchange for player tokens that can be obtained by completing the exchanged goals, in a manner similar to what happened with FUT Swaps on FIFA 20 !. In short words:
- A) Complete specific objectives
- B) Get, by completing them, the “token” cards that will be needed to unlock the icons
- C) Redeem the icon using the “token” cards
FIFA 20 Ultimate Team – New method of release SBC Icon Swap and availability date
There will be 3 ICON Swap groups released during the year.
- Each version of ICON Swaps will contain at least 20 individual ICON (non-exchangeable).
- “Token” players may also be used to redeem certain ICON packages guaranteed during each swap version.
- Each version of ICON Swaps will contain a range of ICON versions
- If an ICON has already been released in a version of ICON Swaps, it will not have other versions released in a future version of ICON Swaps.
- The objectives of ICON Swaps will reflect the advantages offered
Each version of ICON Swaps will have a unique set of player tokens linked to it
- Each Individual ICON in an ICON Swap requires a certain number of player tokens to redeem.
- Each player “token” can be redeemed only in that specific release of ICON Swaps and not for the next version of ICON Swaps.
- Player tokens will be issued for the duration of each version of ICON Swaps
- Similar to the FUT exchange offers, you will have to choose which ICONS you want to unlock based on the number of player chips you have earned.
ICON Swaps 1 will be released 11 October 2019 and will last until December . ICON Swaps 1 also allows you to earn selected ICON Prime players before they enter packages. It will contain the following ICONS with their specific version detailed in the following image:
