EA have decided to celebrate the career of Alexandre Pato by releasing a Flashback SBC for the Brazilian striker. Here’s how you can complete Pato’s Ultimate Team SBC and get your hands on an excellent forward.
The fact that Pato currently plays his football in the MLS will make him rather difficult to fit into squads but players should consider making room for him as the striker should be a goal machine leading the line.
Players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this Brazilian speedster, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.
FIFA 22 Flashback Alexandre Pato stats
When examining Pato’s stats it’s difficult not to like what you see given how well-rounded of a striker he is. We knew that Pato was going to bring top-tier pace and dribbling to the table but his shooting and physical stats are a pleasant surprise.
86 strength and 94 jumping will be incredibly useful in the box while his 90 shot power and 87 finishing will lead to a ton of goals. Pato feels quick and responsive as a forward with mazelike dribbling ability and his 4* skills and weak foot are a huge bonus. If you use Brazilian players, Pato is a no-brainer SBC.
Cheapest way to complete FIFA 22 Flashback Pato SBC
To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Rossoneri, Seleção, and League Finesse. Considering the value, this is an incredibly affordable FIFA 22 SBC, costing about 145,000 coins in total.
You can check out the cheapest solutions below.
- # of players from Milan: minimum 1
- TOTW players: minimum 1
- Squad Rating: minimum 83
- Team Chemistry: minimum 80
Rossoneri solution – Cost: 31,000 coins
- # of players from Brazil: minimum 1
- Squad Rating: minimum 84
- Team Chemistry: minimum 75
Seleção solution – Cost: 37,000 coins
League Finesse requirements
- # of players from Serie A TIM: minimum 1
- Squad Rating: minimum 85
- Team Chemistry: minimum 70
League Finesse solution – Cost: 75,000 coins
The Alexandre Pato FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Flashback SBC is available until January 20, so make sure to get working on this challenge as soon as possible. Even if you don’t have a ton of Brazilian players, Pato makes for a fantastic impact from the bench.

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.
- Collect your loan player as a reward.
Players will receive a loan card matching the nominee they selected as a reward.
With leaks indicating that Ronaldo and Salah both missed out on the TOTY, competition will be incredibly fierce for the 12th and final spot.

TOTY FIFA 22 Ultimate Team nominees, voting, leaks, & SBCs
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 some of the players expected to be involved in the TOTY promo as well as how to vote for TOTY nominees.
- When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
- What is Team of the Year?

- TOTY leaks full squad *SPOILERS*
When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
Players should expect this highly-anticipated promo a few weeks into the new year. In FIFA 21, this particular promo was available as of January 22, 2021. What with EA’s tendency to release promos on Friday, January 21, 2022, is a great date to circle on your calendar given voting closed on January 18, 2022.
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 Nominees
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.
That’s not to say that players who haven’t won a trophy can’t end up on the TOTY. Someone like Erling Haaland whose individual performances have earned him the praise of football fans around the world has a great chance at making the list.
Here are the Attacker, Midfielder, and Defender nominees for the FIFA 22 TOTY.
The Attackers nominees 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 should certainly be involved in the squad.
As previously mentioned, Jorginho’s Euro and Champions League winning year should see him make the TOTY. His Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kanté also has a great shot at making the cut this year.
Expect to see the trend of Premier League players making the TOTY continue when it comes to defenders. After all, Chelsea did win the Champions League and Ruben Dias has looked incredible throughout 2021.
Gianluigi Donnarumma and Edouard Mendy should be the favorites to receive the Goalkeeper spot. However, players must remember that the TOTY is decided by fan vote which means anything can happen when it comes to determining the squad.
TOTY leaks full squad *SPOILERS BELOW*
FIFA leakers are restless when it comes to revealing upcoming promos and exciting cards prior to their release date. Consider this a warning for any FUT players who want the TOTY squad to remain a surprise until the official release date.
This squad of eleven players represents the top performers of 2021. The entire squad has been confirmed by renowned FIFA leakers DonkTrading and FutSheriff. Naturally, there’s going to be a ton of debate surrounding these inclusions as players hope to pack a TOTY card in the coming weeks.
When EA Sports announces additional information concerning the official release date we’ll update this section so be sure to check back in!
