Team of the Season is well underway in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and next up is Ligue 1 — here’s everything we know about the French TOTS squad, including when the team dropped, stats, and more.
Team of the Season is well underway, with mouthwatering squads from the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, and the fan-voted “Community” team already added to the star-studded Ultimate Team player roster.
Now FIFA 21 players have their eyes set on Ligue 1’s year-end event.
When it comes to top-class players, the French top league is hardly lacking in talent, with the likes of Mbappe, Neymar, Ben Yedder, and Di Maria all impressing in 2020/21.
So, which of Ligue 1’s top-class names made it into this year’s TOTS promo? For starters, both the leaks and our predictions weren’t too far off the mark.
The Ligue 1 squad was the sixth major lineup released for Team of the Season proceedings, and dropped at the end of the last week of the month.
EA SPORTS confirmed ahead of time the sixth major Team of the Season squad would be released on Friday, May 28, with FUT fans getting their first look at the squads around 6pm BST. They stuck to their word, and the first batch of Ligue 1 TOTS cards were added to packs soon after.
The new Ligue 1 upgrades will be in packs for a week, and you can find all of the players who made the cut down below:
A host of Ligue 1 leaks slipped through the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team cracks ahead of the squad’s official release: popular insider @KingLangpard once again revealed seven of the squad’s fifteen players before they even came out.
While the ratings didn’t exactly match up (Neymar is actually a 96 instead of just 94) they did the the players themselves that would be included right. Ben Yedder, Di Maria, Depay, Bamba, and of course Laborde all made an appearance in the leaks, and can be found in the official TOTS squad as well.
Neymar – CAM – 94
Mbappe (Worse than POTY)
Also, a UCL Showdown SBC consisting of Werner & Walker

Three cards had already been partially leaked on the FUT loading screen, however, including a mysterious midfielder, at least one star from newly-crowned Ligue 1 champs Lille, and a French player boasting “97” dribbling after their TOTS upgrade.
Here’s the early FUT loading screen leaks:
As we expected the Ligue 1 TOTS lineup is loaded up with Lille and PSG stars. Dexerto also expected to see Monaco, Lyon, and Marseille in Friday’s Team of the Season promo squad.
So, how did our predictions, selected as TOTS began, pan out this time? Read below to take a look for yourself:
So there you have it — everything we know about one of FIFA 21’s most popular Team of the Season lineups ever year, Ligue 1. Expect to see the “Ultimate” lineup up next in the bumper FUT promo, in early June.
