FIFA 21 TOTS Community voting opens with full list of nominees


With the end of the football season drawing near, FIFA 21 Team of the Season will soon be upon us as EA SPORTS release some of the best Ultimate Team cards of the year. 

Just like every year of FIFA, FIFA 21 Ultimate Team has seen the return of some classic promos, as well as some new ones that have been pretty clever. 

EA SPORTS have passed over promos like Winter Refresh, but the staples of Team of the Year, Player Days, and FUT Birthday have already been and gone.

With the calendar winding down on the real-world football season, it’ll soon be time for Team of the Season, and it’s looking like it’ll return in its usual slot and not the June/July release that we had in FIFA 20. So, here’s everything we know.

FIFA 21 TOTS start date

Given that the usual weekly Friday promos haven’t come around too often recently, some Ultimate Team players have theorized that EA could be working on something big.

Well, according to leaks from FUTInvestLeaks, Team of the Season looks to be that big new promo, as we’ve got a supposed release date of Friday, April 23. 

The leaker nailed everything in regards to FUT Birthday, and the Friday release would line up with EA usually does. It’ll just be a case of waiting for the hints and loading screens to see if the leaker gets things spot on. 

What’s included in FIFA 21 TOTS?

Team of the Season is all about players getting recognized for their form over the course of their league campaign, but aside from the new cards, EA should bring other content.

That includes the following:

  • New TOTS cards (Leagues & Ultimate TOTS)
  • TOTS Squad Building Challenges (SBCs)
  • Team of the Season objectives
  • Lightning rounds for packs

FIFA 21 TOTS release calendar

In terms of a release calendar for the different Team of the Season squads, it should resemble something like last year given that EA rarely deviates from what they’ve done before.

FIFA 21 TOTS card design

The blue and gold cards of FIFA’s past will be returning for FIFA 21 TOTS.

As EA has shown on their Team of the Season website, it looks pretty similar to the FIFA 20 card design but with some FIFA 21 spice.

FIFA 21 TOTS SBCs and Objectives

No SBCs or Objectives have been revealed for TOTS this year just yet, but expect them to drop as soon as the voting wraps up and we know for sure who’s made the cut and who hasn’t.

There should be a number of SBCs and Objectives for those who made the cut, and even some who were only nominees, so be sure to check back soon.

FIFA 21 TOTS leaks

Any possible leaks probably won’t come out until a few days or even hours before the voting ends on April 23. BE sure to check back as we’ll be updating this section with any leaks that happen to drop before things kick off.

As new details come to light about the cards, content, and more, we’ll update this post, so be sure to check back in as we get closer to Team of the Season.
