Player of the Month (POTM) awards are back in FIFA 22, giving fans the opportunity to choose which real-life player’s performances deserve a boosted Ultimate Team card. Here are all the nominees and winners for Ligue 1.
A new FIFA Ultimate Team season is upon us, and FIFA 22 players have already been busy taking part in monthly votes to determine which in-form players deserve Player of the Month (POTM) cards in their respective leagues.
POTM cards pack more of a punch than Team of the Week (TOTW) cards, which only provide modest stat improvement. So, as you’d expect, they’re highly sought-after and can be unlocked by completing a squad-building challenge (SBC).
Here’s everything you need to know about the Ligue 1 POTM in FIFA 22, including how to vote, who the nominees and winners are, and more.
How to vote for Ligue 1 POTM in FIFA 22
If you want to get involved with the Ligue 1 POTM vote, you will have to wait until the nominees are announced. This typically happens towards the end of the month and is published on the official Trophées UNFP website.
After you know all the Ligue 1 nominees and have made your choice, follow the instructions below:
- Head over to the FIFA 22 POTM website
- Select Ligue 1
- Scroll through the candidates and make your choice
- Hit vote
- Wait until your vote is confirmed and then you’re done!
Ligue 1 POTM February winner: Kylian Mbappe
He might not have gotten a FIFA 22 card for his August POTM, but PSG cover star Kylian Mbappe is on the board with a Ligue 1 upgrade — finally — in this year’s cycle.
Four goals in four games plus an assist will more than likely do that as the star struck in almost every outing (PSG’s 3-1 loss to Nantes didn’t feature Mbappe on the scoresheet). It’s also his seventh POTM award in Ligue 1.

However, if you thought this card was going to be an easy grab after being an easy vote, you’d be wrong. The 94-rated card certainly boasts some great stats to justify his appearances: 99 Pace, 91 Shooting, 95 Dribbling, and 86 Passing are the major highlights.
But, it won’t be cheap. The Mbappe POTM SBC will set you back more than 2 million FUT coins and require a whopping 11 squads to complete. It’s up there for one of the most expensive SBCs in this cycle, and it’s not even his best card (those lucky enough to have his Headliners and TOTY cards would know that).
If you do fork out for it, rest assured he’ll carry you to plenty of victories in the tail end of the cycle.
