TOTY FIFA 22 Ultimate Team release date & full squad
Ultimate Team’s TOTY promo is one of the most anticipated events of FIFA 22. The top footballers of the past year are honored as players vote for their favorite TOTY nominees in FIFA 22.
Team of the Year highlights the best Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers in an eleven-man squad. However, players can also expect 5-6 additional cards through the 12th Man, Objectives, and SBCs.
The competition was stiff this year as 2021’s top performers stepped up their game. Let’s take a look at the release date and the players included in the TOTY promo.
When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
After the full squad was revealed on January 20, the TOTY will begin to appear in packs as of Friday, January 21, 2022. Forwards appeared in packs first and were then withdrawn to make room for midfielders who became available in packs as of January 23.
Midfielders will then disappear from January 25 to 26 as Defenders make their way into the fold. Once Defenders have their two days in packs, all TOTY cards will be made available.
As is the norm with most promos players can expect to get their hands on these coveted cards at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET.
What is Team of the Year?
TOTY is a compilation of footballers who performed the best throughout 2021. Unlike Team of the Season which uses a club season as the criteria, this promo uses the calendar year to judge the top performers.
EA Sports typically chooses a squad of eleven players that fit into a 4-3-3 formation. Although, there is some flexibility when it comes to the way players fit into the formation. All players can expect a stat boost that will take their overall into the 90s.
Interestingly enough, this promo is decided by FUT players through a vote. You’ll get to decide which superstars are included in this year’s iteration of the Team of the Year. We’ll keep you posted when voting opens to FIFA 22 players.
FIFA 22 TOTY full squad
The criteria for selecting the TOTY is heavily influenced by trophy-winners. Most of the players on this list will have won a competition by the time 2021 comes to a close.
For example, Jorginho isn’t known as the flashiest footballer but his contribution to winning the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 makes him an undeniable representative.
The Attackers are led by Robert Lewandowksi who many believed should have won the 2021 Ballon d’Or thanks to his brilliant performances in the Champions League and Bundesliga. After winning Copa America last summer, Lionel Messi is once again involved in the squad.
As previously mentioned, Jorginho’s Euro and Champions League winning year see him make the TOTY. His Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kanté is right beside him in the midfield.
Check out the full squad below.
