Q: How does the voting work?
A: You vote by visiting the respective country voting pages. From there, select the player you want on the cover, confirm your choice and your vote has been cast.
Q: How many times can I vote?
A: Each vote you cast is worth one (1) point, you can vote like this once a day until the voting closes on July 5.
Q: How to cast additional votes?
A: Every time you vote you can share your support on Twitter. When you do this, you give your favourite player an extra 10 points.
You can also give them more points by playing FIFA 15. When you vote for your player through the portal, you will be given the option to link your Origin ID. Once linked, actions you perform in FIFA 15 will go towards your player.
Points earned through FIFA 15:
.5 point for every game you play in FIFA 15, regardless of mode
.5 point for every game you win in FIFA 15, regardless of mode
.25 point for every goal you score in FIFA 15, regardless of mode
Points from in-game play are rewarded regardless of the clubs, players or modes you choose. You must have your Origin ID linked in order to earn points this way.
