FIFA 22 Team of the Year © WhatsGaming

Every year, EA Sports celebrates 80 players who have had extraordinary performances in the last 12 months! This is one of the biggest promos in FIFA's life cycle up until now. We already talked about TOTM, TOTGS, and other similar events; therefore, we know something big is coming up every time a new promo is on the way. And now, the Team of the Year (TOTY) promo is set to commence in FUT 22 soon but before we get to good parts, EA released a Warmup series seven days earlier. Of course, we all are aware how it's going to be. Not a single promo was ever released without having an effect on SBCs and Objectives. So buckle up and gather your FUT coins, because we're going to attend the Warmup series together to have the best time. If you're short on coins, you can always count on the WhatsGaming team to load up your account with cheap and safe FIFA 22 coins! Let's see which players have been nominated and if you were guessing right the whole time!

FIFA 22 TOTY and Warmup Series

EA Sports' traditions are numerous and mostly stable. Team of the Year promo is one of them. It's that time of the year where you can participate and vote for your favorite footballer to help decide FIFA Ultimate XI. From goalkeepers to defenders, your favorite midfielders, and all the players you were following their careers for a long time. You can vote from the nominated players and help create the best Team of the Year in 2022! This year, EA runs the contest a bit different from previous years and offers you a chance to win a PlayStation 5 while you vote for your preferred player from the final nominees of the TOTY XI. What's better than that? You can find out how to enter and what are the requirements on the EA's official website.
Team of the Year voting ended on January 18, 2022, and it's believed that the actual promo starts on January 21, 2022. TOTY promo runs differently from the other released promos in FUT 22. Player cards will be shuffled out into FUT Packs (just like how the candidates were introduced). It means that as the promo will be launched on 21st January itself, the cards will be ready in stages and released in position order. For instance, the attackers enter FIFA Ultimate Team first, followed by the midfielders and defenders; all given two days each in packs. You saw the opposite of this situation happen in TOTS where the whole squad was released into packs at once. Here are nominee players in every position:
