FIFA 23 Ligue 1 POTM

Here are the nominees for the very first FIFA 23 Ligue 1 Player of the Month. The August nominees include some global superstars, so here’s how to cast your vote for the Ligue 1 POTM.

FIFA 23 players will once again have the opportunity to earn special Player of the Month items via SBC. The Bundesliga, Serie A, and Premier League nominees for August have all been announced, and now Ligue 1 follows suit.

EA confirmed that the August POTM winners across Europe’s top five leagues will not receive special items in FIFA 23, but Ultimate Team fans can still vote for their favorite players. Here are the August nominees for Ligue 1 POTM as well as a guide to casting your vote.

FIFA 23 Ligue 1 POTM August nominees

  • Neymar Jr. – PSG – LW
  • Florian Sotoca – RC Lens – ST
  • Lionel Messi – PSG – RW

While Neymar and Messi would be valuable additions to any club at the start of FIFA 23, EA confirmed that the August POTM winners across all leagues will not receive a special card in FIFA 23.

Instead, the September POTM winners will likely be the first POTM items to hit Ultimate Team. Ligue 1 is well underway and while the league must crown a winner for August’s POTM, FIFA 23 is set to release on September 30.

How to vote for FIFA 23 Ligue 1 POTM

  1. Visit EA’s POTM webpage for FIFA 23
  2. Select Vote Now under the Ligue 1 category
  3. Have a look at the POTM nominees
  4. Cast your vote for the Ligue 1 POTM
  5. Wait for the Ligue 1 POTM to be announced by EA

While EA hosts the POTM voting for four of Europe’s top five leagues, it seems the Ligue 1 voting will take place on a third-party website governed by Ligue 1. We’ll let you know if this changes following the release of FIFA 23.

Nonetheless, you can expect your vote on this website to count toward the Ligue 1 POTM in FIFA 23. Players can still vote for the August Ligue 1 POTM even though a special card for the winner will not appear in Ultimate Team.

We’ll keep you updated with the September nominees once they’re announced, and you’ll have a say in which player will receive the first Ligue 1 POTM item in FIFA 23.
