Maradona in FIFA 21: How to play with the Argentina icon

FIFA 21 Maradona

Diego Maradona was one of the best players of all time, and is also one of the top stars in FIFA 21.

After the legend’s death, EA Sports paid tribute by giving out a Maradona tifo in FIFA 21, while his Icon card also increased in price on the FIFA Ultimate Team transfer market as people wished to use him in game.

Even if you cannot afford to buy Maradona in Ultimate Team, there are still ways to play with one of the greatest of all time.

Icons are only available in the FIFA Ultimate Team game mode and are among the rarest and most expensive players in the game.

Prices for Maradona Icons on the market range between 2 million and 3m coins.

Most people will not be able to afford these sorts of icons as they are so expensive, but you can try out Maradona by using his loan item or in FUT Draft.

Draft mode allows you to use some of the best players in the game, including special players like Team of the Year or Team of the Season players, as well as Icons.

If you are lucky, you might be able to draft Maradona and use him in that mode’s knockout competition.

Following the passing of Maradona, EA Sports added a new splash screen to FIFA 21 with the heading “Gracias Diego” as well as a touching message to the legendary footballer.

Every FIFA Ultimate Team player was also given a free reward of a Maradona Tifo and Argentina’s home and away kit..

You can get these items by logging into the game on your console or by opening the Web App or Companion App, and they will be added as untradeable items.

To use the Maradona Tifo in the game, go to the Stadium section by holding the right stick upwards on the menu. Navigate to the Crowds section and you will be able to assign tifos to various sections of your stadium.

Each Icon has different versions from particular periods in their playing career, including a Prime Icon Moment which represents a player at their peak.

The higher-rated versions of a player tend to be more expensive and the highest-rated version, the Prime Icon Moment card, is not released at the start of the gamebut rather a few months into the season.
