What is the TOTY 12th Man?
With limited space available in the Ultimate XI, EA introduced the 12th Player to Team of the Year to reward someone who is just as deserving to gain an incredible card, if there was just that little extra room.
Last year, Lionel Messi picked up the spot, with EA saying:
He was close to making the ultimate XI, but your votes made sure Lionel Messi is recognised for his incredible year as the TOTY 12th Player!
This year, it's Messi's long-term rival, Cristiano Ronaldo who has claimed the 12th Man slot.
