A trio of Chelsea players have been included by EA SPORTS in their 2023 Future Stars squad and to celebrate we are giving supporters the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Every year EA SPORTS reveals their Future Stars list, honouring the brightest prospects in world football and celebrating their potential, and for FIFA 23 they have selected three Chelsea players, all of whom joined the club during the January transfer window – Benoit Badiashile, Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk.
They are the latest Blues to be named Future Stars, following the inclusions of Trevoh Chalobah, Conor Gallagher, Reece James, Mason Mount and others in the last few years, and to celebrate the latest trio’s recognition we have partnered with EA SPORTS for a prize giveaway.
Three lucky supporters will receive a 2022/23 Chelsea home shirt signed by one of our Future Stars trio and a physical Future Stars Ultimate Team item, in addition to a copy of FIFA 23 and two tickets to see Chelsea play at home in the Premier League this season.

Meanwhile, you can find a bit about why our trio of Blues were selected as Future Stars below…
The French centre-back will not turn 22 until March but already boasted a wealth of experience upon his arrival at Chelsea from Monaco, having amassed almost 150 appearances across all competitions, including representing them in Ligue 1, the Champions League and Europa League.
Badiashile made a winning start to his Chelsea career at Crystal Palace and helped us keep a clean sheet in all of his first three matches for the Blues, playing every minute of those games.
Fernandez’s talent and potential had already been acknowledged when FIFA named him as the tournament’s best young player as he won last year’s World Cup with Argentina, playing an important role in that success by starring at the heart of their midfield.
That capped a rapid rise that had seen him pick up domestic and continental trophies in his homeland before bursting onto the European scene with Benfica in this season’s Champions League, as they topped a group featuring Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, while registering 11 goal involvements in 29 appearances in all competitions.
The Ukrainian winger’s skill and pace had made him one of Europe’s most admired young talents before he completed his move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea last month and he impressed on his debut away at Liverpool, causing a constant attacking threat and registering the highest speed of any player in this season’s Premier League, despite it being his first game for two months.
The problems he gives defenders were demonstrated during his time with Shakhtar, too, having managed 18 goal involvements in as many matches in their most recent campaign, including three goals and two assists in this season’s Champions League group stage.
