Release Date

The La Liga season has come to an end and there are no more matches to be played in May.

With the official shortlist now having been revealed, we will likely see the winner announced in the coming days.

The current Karim Benzema April Player of the Month SBC expires on Monday, 6 June, so there will be a bit of a wait for another La Liga POTM SBC to go live.

Monday, 30 June is the absolute earliest we could see the new SBC come, but it will likely arrive a bit later than that as EA needs to allow time for votes.
