FIFA 22: Why you MUST save your FUT Champs Player Picks for TOTS

The Team of the Season (TOTS) promo is set to kick off soon in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, alongside the Icon Swaps 2 campaign.

The most hotly anticipated campaign of the year will bring us plenty of content including promo cards, objectives and SBCs.

So, we're taking a look at how best you can prepare your FUT 22 club ahead of the giant promo.

Patience is key

You can expect your Weekend League rewards to include Team of the Season Red Player Picks once the promo kicks off if EA follows the same system as FIFA 21.

This means you can earn TOTS cards for free simply by playing Weekend League.

The more wins you achieve, the better chance you will have of receiving a top tier TOTS card.

It must be noted that all TOTS player picks earned from the Weekend League will be untradeable.

Packs galore

Unfortunately, saving your player picks does mean that you will not be able to open any packs during this time period.

Though this may seem like an issue, we feel the positives outweigh the negatives here.

This will almost force you to save your packs for the TOTS promo, meaning once the players are released into packs you will have a higher chance of packing one.

You will also still be able to complete any pack or player SBCs that are released over the next few weeks.

TOTS start date

FIFA 21's TOTS campaign started on Friday, 23 April with the Community TOTS squad and EFL TOTS squad released.

The official FIFA 22 Team of the Season start date has not yet been confirmed by EA, but it looks like we now know when the campaign will begin.

The reliable FutArcade has revealed that EA will kick off the FIFA 22 TOTS promo on Friday, 29 April 2022.

The first TOTS squads will be released into packs at approximately 1pm ET / 6pm GMT on the day of release.

Expected TOTS Squads

Looking at years gone by in FUT, we can predict which squads are expected to feature.

The following squads will likely be released as part of the FIFA 22 Team of the Season promo:

You can expect some of these squads to be released into packs at the same time.

For example, in FIFA 21 the Premier League and Saudi League TOTS players were made available in packs during the same week.
