Now we know the next big event is just days away, as the announced Team of the Year has just been teased by EA Sports. Always one of the biggest events in the Ultimate Team cycle, the TOTY cards will be among the highest rated when released.
Here's everything you need to know about FIFA 22 TOTY, including the start date, nominees, how to vote and more.
When does FIFA 22 TOTY start?
According to a recent tweet from EA Sports FIFA account, FIFA 22 TOTY is set to start on Friday 7th January 2022. We can expect the event to officially start at 18pm GMT according to the usual FUT 22 event start time. .
The event will begin with a voting period where Ultimate Team players will have the opportunity to choose from a list of nominees, similar to POTM voting periods. Forwards will be the first group of nominees according to the EA Sports FIFA Twitter feed.
FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees – Forwards, Midfielders, Defenders & Goalkeepers
In previous versions of FIFA, TOTY teams are released after a week-long voting period for Ultimate Team players to sort through the nominees. The forward nominees are set to be revealed on Friday January 7, so it would make sense for the midfielders and then the defenders and goalkeepers nominees to be released on January 8 and 9.
Multiple FUT 22 leaks suggest that EA Sports will then have a week of voting from January 10-17 before the official XI goes live in-game. Expect to see players from SBC challenges and Objectives become available for unlocking as well as accompanying the official FIFA 22 TOTY team.
