You want to play with icons in FIFA 22 and you just can't get them for your team in FIFA Ultimate Team? Then we have the solution for you, how you still can play with icons: The Soccer Aid Team in kick-off mode.

Legends or Icons
are the strongest players in FIFA. They have already ended their career, but were such outstanding kickers in their active time that EA lets us play with them again.

Especially in FUT, icons add a little something extra. If you have a legend in your team, successful actions on the pitch are almost a given. Sure, there are also icons every year that are absolutely useless and quickly become worse than other cards. But if you don't enjoy playing with Pelé, Maradona or Ronaldinho, you've never loved soccer!

Kick Off in FIFA 22: Soccer Aid Team with all Icon-Players

If you want to test some icons yourself and play with them, you can do that in the kick-off mode. You simply have to select the Soccer Aid team. Here, you'll find 41 legends, from which you can create an incredibly cool starting XI. It is by far the best team you can choose in kick-off. So, if you ever play against a buddy who is much better than you, you might at least have a chance with this team.

Unfortunately, the other icons that are only available in Ultimate Team are missing. But you can get a taste of how awesome the former GOATS of soccer are on the pitch.
