EA Sports has released the most expensive Icon SBC of FIFA 23 Ultimate Team so far, with Cover Star Icon Ronaldinho being up for grabs. The legendary Brazilian phenom is regarded as one of the most skilled and beloved players to ever grace the sport, and his abilities on the virtual pitch do justice to his reputation as a generational talent.

Cover Star Icons are a brand new addition to FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, providing special versions to legends who were once on the cover of a game in the legendary series.

With the franchise being rebranded as EA Sports FC, this is the ideal time to release such cards, with Cover Star Icon Ronaldinho being the most exciting addition to the roster.

The overall expected cost of the Cover Star Icon Ronaldinho SBC in FIFA 23 is around 5.3 million FUT Coins, much more expensive than his previously released prime version.

This is by far the most expensive SBC to be released during the game cycle of FIFA 23, but with five-star skill moves and five-star weak foot abilities, 98-rated Cover Star Icon Ronaldinho is definitely worth it.
