FIFA 22’s Player of the Month (POTM) awards are back, with football’s most impactful players across the year getting a nod for a big upgrade in-game. Keeping a keen eye on Spanish football? Here’s what you need to know about LaLiga’s POTM process, including how to vote and grab their upgraded cards.

If you’ve played past editions of FIFA, you’re likely familiar with the POTM process. FIFA players can vote on the best footballers that month in their domestic league, with the winner getting an upgraded card reflecting their form.

POTM cards are typically a big boost on a player’s base card compared to a Team of the Week (TOTW) nod. However, you will typically have to complete an SBC to grab one.

  1. Head over to the EA SPORTS LaLiga POTM website
  2. Scroll through the candidates and make your choice
  3. Hit vote
  4. Wait until your vote is confirmed and then you’re done

September LaLiga POTM nominees and winner

September’s POTM for LaLiga has gone to Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema. The striker has been on fire in LaLiga this year, netting nine goals and eight games including a hat-trick against Celta Vigo on September 12.


Benzema’s 91-rated POTM card is a +2 upgrade on his base card, upping his Pace to 79 and already solidifying his insane Shooting and Passing stats.

If you want to recruit Benzema to your team, you’ll have to complete an SBC like usual. Unlike Ronaldo’s 26 squads though, you’ll only need two ⁠— and it should set you back around 135,000 coins, making it a great investment if you have the fodder.

You’ll have until October 22 to complete the SBC and grab this top-tier Benzema card.
