EA Sports added the Icon Swaps 1 to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today. It contains six different Icons: Nemanja Vidić (base version, six tokens), Gheorghe Hagi (mid version, nine tokens), Davor Šuker (mid version, 11 tokens), Ronald Koeman (prime version, 13 tokens), Frank Rijkaard (prime version, 14 tokens), and Thierry Henry (mid version, 17 tokens).

For now, there are eight objectives that will reward you with an Icon Swaps token once you complete them. There are also three other objectives that will grant you FUT packs. All of these first objectives will be live until Jan. 1 when the second season of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team expires.

The Icons available in Icon Swaps 1 aren’t exactly exciting, though. Players like Vidić, Hagi, and Šuker aren’t worth grinding for because you can get better players for a reasonable price on the FUT Market. We’d advise you to save your first Icon Swaps tokens and use them later for Henry because he’s the only card that perfectly fits the Ultimate Team meta at this time.

Here are all of the Icon Swaps’ objectives that EA added today:
