As FIFA Ultimate Team has evolved over the years, EA have incorporated more and more real-life performances into the game. Team of the Week is always a hotly debated topic each week, as are Team of the Year and Team of the Season when they roll around.

However, in recent season, they’ve also incorporated Player of the Month awards. These awards, again, come from the actual shortlist of their respective league and FIFA fans can vote on who they want to win.
