EA SPORTS has dropped a set of Honorable Mentions TOTY cards into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team after the Team of the Year’s rollout wrapped up. Here’s everything you need to know about this latest FUT release.

Team of the Year cards have been dripped into packs on a position-by-position basis since the voting ended and the fan-voted XI was revealed. This is expected to conclude with the full starting 11 going into FUT packs on January 28.

However, that’s probably not going to be the last you see of TOTY, as Honorable Mentions and 12th Man are next up.

In the case of the 12th Man – that’s essentially a fan pick of three final nominees who didn’t make the cut, and players were able to vote for who they wanted to see make the cut. For Honorable Mentions, it works a little differently and there’s more content involved.


FIFA 22 Honorable Mentions content explained

If the promo is going to run the same as FIFA 21, that would mean fans can expect six new TOTY-themed cards to be involved in the Honorable Mentions content drop.

These will be released into FUT packs this January, and further SBC or Objectives cards will also be on the way.

Alongside the release of the Honorable Mention players, EA SPORTS are also gearing up to drop the TOTY 12th Man winner. Voted for by FUT users, this special card is awarded to the player who narrowly missed out on the final TOTY squad but still deserves a nod.


They will receive a huge upgrade similar to the one given to the main team, so it’s sure to be an unbelievable card. According to well-known FIFA leaker FutSheriff, the 12th man has already surfaced.

If their leaks are to be believed, it appears that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo came out on top of the voting. It suggests that Ronaldo will receive a 97-rated card, with eye-watering shooting and dribbling stats.
