We have created this FAQ to make it easier to understand the TOTY event
TOTY is an event created by Electronic Arts to celebrate the best players of the civil year. According to the EA’s financial reports, it is the most profitable event.
TOTY was released on January 6, 2020 (Monday). Usually, it lasts one week.
The TOTY event was released for the first time ever in FIFA 13 but the first items were released in FIFA 12.
TOTY is THE event. It is the most important promotion because it features the best items.
Once a year, a team featuring the world’s best players is announced. This release is responsible for thousands of pack openings. It also means severe price falls. Everything happens at an absolute immense scale: these cards are the best in the game, they come in packs for a week and prices fall to never before seen values.

Yes. Team of the Week are released uninterrupted every Wednesday.
Team of the Year, commonly abbreviated to TOTY, is a selection of players released on a yearly basis. These blue special cards are assigned to the best players based on their real performance on the previous civil year.

Team of the Year items are probably the best cards in this game. They feature significant upgrades and are assigned to the best players of the civil year.
TOTY is a team made by the votes of the FIFA community. The TOTS is about the players of each league who have played better during the season (usually between August/September and May).
The Team of The Year is voted on by the FIFA Community. Each team is selected from a shortlist of 55 players, nominated by EA SPORTS for their real-world performance in the previous year. The final Team of the Year selection will be determined by a combination of EA and Community Votes.

Before FIFA 18, the TOTY players were selected from the voting of FIFPro, the worldwide professional footballers association, and announced in the Best FIFA Football Awards Gala.
Eleven. The Team of the Year is released only once a year and contain the best 11 players in the world. The TOTY is made up of 1 goalkeeper, 4 defenders, 3 midfielders and 3 forwards, where each category can contain a player in any position.
TOTY card ratings remain unchanged after being implemented into FUT.
No, they are not affected by TOTY items.
You can have multiple items of the same player in your club. However, you cannot use them in your squad at the same time.
TOTY items become available in packs for a full week. During this period, they replace the corresponding regular items. In other words, it is not possible to find a regular card of a TOTY player on that week.

If you own the regular card of a TOTY player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the new version, you will need to buy the corresponding version in the market or pull it from a pack in that week.

Your odds of pulling a TOTY card from a pack are exactly the same ones of pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.
All the most popular packs will be available but for a limited time or limited quantity (lightning rounds). This includes 25k, 35k, 50k, 100k and 125k packs.
Themed SBCs, themed objectives and themed players cards are also available.
Lightning Rounds are new rounds of promo packs, which are available on the store until they run out. On Lightning Rounds there are a global limited amount of packs to be sold. The first to come are the first to be served. On another hand, without a limit of packs for each user, you are free to buy how many promo packs you want as long as they are not sold out.
During the Team of the Year event, lightning rounds are usually released in a daily basis.
Yes. These packs are usually released during the TOTY promotions.
You have to pack them while they are available in packs. A selection of players (nominees) can also be found in objectives and SBCs.
They are in packs from Monday to Monday but not all at the same time (except in a selected time).
The players are not inserted in packs all at once. These special items are released according to their positions. From Thursday to Monday, all TOTY items are available in packs.
Just like it happens with any best-rated player, the likelihood of finding a TOTY item in FUT packs is very low because these cards are extremely rare.
TOTY players can be found in any pack with rare gold players. Obviously, the chances of finding one of these cards are higher if you open a pack which contains more rare gold players cards.
Yes, they are.
Yes. Except for FUT Champions Players Picks, it doesn’t matter when you got the packs. The cards you will find inside depend exclusively of the date you open them.
That’s when all the Team of the Year players are in packs, probably between Thursday night and Monday night.
