One of FIFA’s most popular events is back, with Headliners set to return to Ultimate Team to ring in 2022 in style.
Now, one of the mode’s most popular events is back, with Headliners set to close out 2021 with a host of powerful cards. First added in 2019, this event is always full of special packs, SBCs, objectives, and great players for your FUT team.
We’ve got all the details about what to expect down below.
When does FUT 22 Headliners start?
FIFA 22’s Headliners is set to kick off on New Year’s Eve, meaning players can get their hands on upgraded cards from Friday, December 31 with Team 2 available as of January 7.
Almost all FIFA 22 Ultimate Team events kick off at 6PM GMT / 1PM EST, and Headliners is no different.
What is FUT 22 Headliners?
Headliners is a simple event, with players earning a special upgrade based on real-world performances.
To get an upgrade, players will need to:
- Get a new Team of the Week card
- Earn a Player of the Match upgrade
- Be part of a team that win four consecutive games (one-time only)
Headliners can receive four upgrades through the rest of FIFA 22, and will always be one rating point ahead of their highest-rated TOTW card.
FUT 22 Headliners Team 1 & Team 2
Team 1 hasn’t been the most well-received promo to date but there are some superstars up for grabs. Kylian Mbappé’s Headliners card is without a doubt the most sought-after item in the promo, with Van Dijk, and Koulibaly next in line. Unfortunately, there’s a steep drop-off after the top choices in Team 1.
Team 2 fares better with more options that will leave you satisfied. Salah and Kimmich are the top two options and their clubs have a great chance at winning four straight before the season ends.
However, Barella, Cancelo, Vinicius JR., Theate, and to some extent Watkins are all excellent options as well.

As the year comes to a close, FUT players can’t wait to get their hands on the Team of the Year promo. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 22 TOTY.
Ultimate Team’s TOTY promo is one of the most anticipated events of FIFA 22. The top footballers of the past year are honored as players vote for their favorite TOTY nominees in FIFA 22.
Team of the Year highlights the best Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers in an eleven-man squad. However, players can also expect 5-6 additional cards through the 12th Man, Objectives, and SBCs.
The competition was stiff this year as 2021’s top performers stepped up their game. Let’s take a look at the release date and the players included in the TOTY promo in addition to SBCs and Objectives FUT players will get a chance to complete.

- What is Team of the Year?
- FIFA 22 TOTY full squad
- TOTY Objectives & SBCs
When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
After the full squad was revealed on January 20, the TOTY will begin to appear in packs as of Friday, January 21, 2022. Forwards will appear in packs first on January 21, with midfielders and defenders set to follow in the subsequent days.
As is the norm with most promos players can expect to get their hands on these coveted cards at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET.
What is Team of the Year?
TOTY is a compilation of footballers who performed the best throughout 2021. Unlike Team of the Season which uses a club season as the criteria, this promo uses the calendar year to judge the top performers.
EA Sports typically chooses a squad of eleven players that fit into a 4-3-3 formation. Although, there is some flexibility when it comes to the way players fit into the formation. All players can expect a stat boost that will take their overall into the 90s.
Interestingly enough, this promo is decided by FUT players through a vote. You’ll get to decide which superstars are included in this year’s iteration of the Team of the Year. We’ll keep you posted when voting opens to FIFA 22 players.
FIFA 22 TOTY full squad
The criteria for selecting the TOTY is heavily influenced by trophy-winners. Most of the players on this list will have won a competition by the time 2021 comes to a close.
For example, Jorginho isn’t known as the flashiest footballer but his contribution to winning the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 makes him an undeniable representative.
The Attackers are led by Robert Lewandowksi who many believed should have won the 2021 Ballon d’Or thanks to his brilliant performances in the Champions League and Bundesliga. After winning Copa America last summer, Lionel Messi is once again involved in the squad.
As previously mentioned, Jorginho’s Euro and Champions League winning year see him make the TOTY. His Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kanté is right beside him in the midfield.
Check out the full squad below.
- 96- Donnarumma
- 94- Cancelo
- 95- Marquinhos
- 97- Ruben Dias
- 93- Hakimi
- 96- De Bruyne
- 97- Jorginho
- 96- Kanté
- 98- Messi
- 97- Mbappe
- 98- Lewandowski
TOTY Objectives & SBCs
As of now we currently have no indication of what to expect in terms of the players up for grabs through Objectives and SBCs during TOTY.
When EA Sports announces additional information concerning the official release date and SBCs we’ll update this section so be sure to check back in!

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?
Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.
Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.
While an in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Featured TOTW
In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.
To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.
When is the TOTW released?
Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.
Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.

How to vote for 12th man in FIFA 22 TOTY
Following the reveal of the TOTY squad, Ultimate Team players will get a chance to vote for the TOTY 12th man in FIFA 22.
Voting for the TOTY main squad is now closed but Ultimate Team players will soon be able to cast their vote for the illustrious 12th Man in FIFA 22.
After the TOTY nominees were revealed by EA Sports, FUT players could vote for the main squad of eleven from January 10 to January 18. With voting now closed, players are already speculating at which of the best footballers of 2021 made the cut.
Leaks have already hinted at some of the world’s best being involved but there will no doubt be a ton of debate on who unjustly missed the cut. Luckily, players will get a chance to vote a 12th player into the TOTY squad, known as the 12th Man.
When is the TOTY 12th Man release date?
12th Man voting gives players a great opportunity to vote one last player into the TOTY promo. After the announcement of the initial 11 man squad that is expected to occur on January 21, EA will put forth three more nominees that just missed the cut.

Once the three footballers are revealed, FUT players will get their chance to cast a vote for the members of this special ballot. This will likely occur after the full TOTY squad is revealed.
How to vote for the TOTY FIFA 22 12th Man
Contrary to the TOTY main squad vote that took place on EA’s FIFA webpage, the 12th Man voting takes place in-game or on the companion app.
Follow these steps, once the nominees have been selected:
- Log into FIFA 22.
- Start Ultimate Team up on your platform of choice or via the Companion app.
- Choose the nominee you wish to cast a vote for in the proceeding screen.
- Cast your vote.
