EA SPORTS have confirmed the FIFA 21 TOTY (Team of the Year) promo is coming soon to Ultimate Team, and the community will decide who will feature once again with their votes.
The game’s promotional calendar in FUT is ever-changing, but some events have proven to be a constant in the mode. Team of the Year, much like Team of the Week, will always come around at the same time as usual – and that’s January.
With 2020 behind us, many will be looking forward to seeing who will be named TOTY nominees.
EA officially confirmed the arrival of their next FIFA 21 event on January 6, with voting opening a day later – on January 7.
How to vote
FIFA 21 TOTY voting is being conducted on the official FIFA 21 website, and that’s where nominees have been posted – still live as of January 14, 2021.
To cast your vote, all you have to do is follow these steps:
- Load up the official FIFA 21 TOTY voting page.
- Visit the tab for Team of the Year.
- Select the nominees you would like to vote for.
- Confirm your vote online and wait for the winners to be announced.
Team of the Year release date and time
Based on information sent to us by EA, January 18 is when voting stops for the event. Then, it will only be a matter of time for the promo cards to start rolling out.
There is talk that the official release date of the entire TOTY squad will be January 25 – giving EA a few days to publicize the winners in each category of positions.
