When is the FUT Team of the Week revealed?
Fifa Ultimate Team’s Team of the Week feature is released by EA Sports every Wednesday, and is active for a week from 6.00pm GMT.
TOTW recognises the players from across the globe who have stood out for their clubs in the previous round of fixtures.
In total, a squad of 23 is selected, with 11 starters, seven substitutes and five reserves.
All of these in-form stars are recognised with special in-form cards available for that week only with improved stats – they are therefore highly-sought.
The feature is also present on Fifa Mobile, although the format is trimmed down slightly and the cards’ stats are not boosted to the same extent.
Who was named in the Fifa Team of the Year?
Team of the Year (TOTY) gave Fifa 18 Ultimate Team and Fifa Mobile gamers the chance to get their hands on limited-edition cards honouring the standout players from 2017.
TOTY items are available in packs for a limited time after the squad is announced, and were highly-sought after and incredibly rare.
