When is FIFA 22 TOTY coming out?

With voting concluding on January 18, it’s believed that Team of the Year will be revealed on January 21, 2022. 

When is TOTY in packs? FIFA 22 promo explained

Team of the Year works a little differently from other promos in FIFA 22, as the cards included will stagger out into FUT packs, similar to how nominees were announced.


This means that the FIFA 22 TOTY will be announced on that Friday – as expected – but players will be available in stages. For example, attackers may be released into packs first, then midfielders, etc. This is in contrast to Team of the Season, for example, where the entire XI will be revealed and put into packs on that very same day.

The schedule for releases has not yet been confirmed. Once this has been done, we will update this article.

FIFA 22 TOTY cards

The design of the Team of the Year cards has been shown off in glimpses. Until now, we have had to settle for just nominee versions – which are standard, and very similar each year.


For a flash at the complete version, though, check out the official EA SPORTS FIFA reveal for the promo. It can be seen with a gold border.

A more complete version was presented (in mini form) during a giveaway tweet.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year – SBCs, Objectives & leaks

Team of the Year will include some Squad Building Challenges and Objectives, though fans will have to wait for the first wave of cards (most popular, most voted for) to roll into packs before any additional content follows.

The week starting January 24 should include some SBC and Objectives content around TOTY. So far, there have been some strong leaks and unconfirmed reports of EA dropping some absolute fire SBCs around, and during, the promotion.


One of the game’s most notorious leakers @FutSheriff has supposedly managed to uncover some SBCs that could potentially bankrupt players before we even get to TOTY! They have said they do not know the exact days they are coming, however, and it could be before TOTY, or during.

Here are the leaked SBCs according to FUTSheriff:

  • Hero Player Pick
  • 11x 81+ Attackers
  • 11x 81+ Midfielders
  • 11x 81+ Defenders
  • 3x 85+ Attackers
  • 3x 85+ Midfielders
  • 3×85+ Defenders

The Hero Player Pick will be interesting with players scrambling to see if they can grab themself the ever-popular Ginola and Pele cards. Also, the packs centered around each position will be very tempting as players look to store them and increase their chances of securing a TOTY.
