EA SPORTS have today announced that David Beckham will return as a FUT Icon in FIFA 21 and become a new temporary cover star.

EA SPORTS have confirmed that they have a multi-year ambassadorial agreement with Beckham, who will be added to the game as a FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Icon on December 4, to co-incide with the release of the FIFA 21 next-gen release date on Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

To celebrate his return in the game, anyone who plays FIFA 21 by January 15, 2021 will receive a unique, untradeable David Beckham item in FIFA Ultimate Team, and receive him as a VOLTA ‘Groundbreaker’, beginning December 15, 2020. The untradeable card will be 86-rated and will be based on his time at Real Madrid.
