FIFA 22 Team of the Season explained
Team of the Season is the longest-lasting Ultimate Team promo of the year. The promo begins by highlighting two leagues at a time. Each week new leagues will be the focus of Ultimate Team players as valuable cards get added to packs.
The leagues in the spotlight remain in packs for a week until they’re replaced by the following leagues. However, the final squad in packs is expected to be the “Ultimate TOTS” which combines the best players from each of the previously released TOTS squads.
As you may have already noticed, some major squads are decided by fan vote, while others are chosen by EA.
