Team of the Year is here, but before the full squad arrives, EA Sports are dropping the TOTY Warmup Series promo.
For the first time ever, EA Sports have decided to host a pre-TOTY event, with the Warmup preempting the release of the upcoming superpowered squad.
Because this is the first time it’s ever happened, there wasn’t a lot of information about this promo available to players. We can confirm that it’s linked to Team of the Year, and it will give players a chance to stock up on valuable packs.
Players can expect some SBCs, a handful of new packs, and maybe even a few player cards following its initial release. For now, here’s everything we know about FUT 22’s Team of the Year Warmup Series event.
FIFA 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series release date
The good news is that players won’t have long to wait for this promo to start. According to a loading screen in FIFA 22, TOTY Warmup Series will kick off on Friday, January 14.
As with all Ultimate Team promos, the promo will start at 6 PM GMT, adding new content to the game at that time.
TOTY Warmup Series leaks
Interestingly enough, FIFA leakers weren’t able to discover anything about this promo prior to its release.
As it turns out, EA have decided to throw players a curveball with the TOTY Warmup. Instead of receiving a collection of new promo cards, players have received new SBCs, Upgrade SBCs, and new Objectives.
Players will get a chance to earn some incredible new cards through these various means from now until the release of TOTY. EA has also granted players a free 83+ x3 pack that can be found in the FUT Store.
As of now, players can complete a Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC, League Player Malang Sarr Objective, 83+ 3x defender, midfielder, and attacker upgrade SBC as well as two TOTY-themed SBCs.
We’ll be sure to keep updating this article as more information becomes available, while the TOTY Warmup Series continues.

FIFA 22 Team of the Season explained
Team of the Season is the longest-lasting Ultimate Team promo of the year. The promo begins by highlighting two leagues at a time. Each week new leagues will be the focus of Ultimate Team players as valuable cards get added to packs.
The leagues in the spotlight remain in packs for a week until they’re replaced by the following leagues. However, the final squad in packs is expected to be the “Ultimate TOTS” which combines the best players from each of the previously released TOTS squads.
As you may have already noticed, some major squads are decided by fan vote, while others are chosen by EA.
FIFA 22 TOTS player predictions
In this section, we’ll reveal five players from each of Europe’s top five leagues that we believe should be included in the TOTS promo for their leagues. Although there will be plenty of squads up for grabs, we’ll focus on highlighting the potential players from Europe’s elite.
While the majority of TOTS players will come from title-challenging teams, it’s important not to forget other key performers outside of the top teams. As the TOTS squads are revealed we’ll update this list with a * next to our correct predictions. So far, we’ve gone 10/10 with the LaLiga squad up next.
Here’s a list of potential TOTS players that we could see in the future:
- Joao Cancelo – Manchester City – LB *
- Trent Alexander Arnold – Liverpool – RB *
- Mohamed Salah – Liverpool – RW *

Is FIFA 22 cross-platform? Current cross-play status
Many players enjoy FIFA 22 with their friends, but does this year’s game support crossplay? We’ve got all the details right here.
FIFA 22 has a wide variety of modes that can be enjoyed with friends, such as Ultimate Team or Pro Clubs, but what about those playing on separate platforms? We’ve got all the details on FIFA 22 crossplay right here.
FIFA 22 has no shortage of features to tackle, whether you’re taking a lower-league club to European glory in Career Mode, or assembling the perfect squad in Ultimate Team. However, there’s no doubt that taking to the pitch with friends takes the game to new heights.
The likes of Online Seasons or Pro Clubs give players even more ways to play together, but many will be wondering if it’s possible to use crossplay to draft in friends from different platforms.
With this in mind, here is everything you need to know about FIFA 22 crossplay.
Does FIFA 22 have crossplay?
Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there is no option for crossplay in FIFA 22. This means that matches with or against friends, or found with online matchmaking, can only occur with those playing on the exact same platform as you.
This also applies cross-gen, so PS4 players can’t get into the same match as anyone on PS5, and Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X users can’t join a game.
Will FIFA 22 get crossplay in the future?
The good news is that EA have confirmed they will be carrying out a crossplay test before the end of FIFA 22’s lifecycle. They didn’t announce an exact start date, but players should keep an eye out for more information in-game.
There are a couple of caveats, however, as this proposed test will only be conducted between players on next-gen consoles, so PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. It will also only be supported in Online Friendlies and Online Seasons, meaning Pro Clubs will still be limited by platform.
While it isn’t confirmed, it’s highly likely that by testing waters in FIFA 22, EA are gearing up for greater crossplay support in FIFA 23, and are currently looking to make sure that they have the correct infrastructure.
