The Team of the Year is rapidly approaching in FIFA 22. The annual promotion is EA Sports' biggest promo, with everyone trying to get their hands on the best 12 players of the past year and their highest-rated cards.

Typically, EA Sports has released the TOTY cards by positions; usually starting with Defenders and Goalkeeper, then eventually the midfielders, and the attackers to follow, eventually finishing off with all 12 players in packs. Here's our expected release date for TOTY defenders in FIFA 22.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year Defenders Release Date

Last year, EA Sports switched up its usual schedule for TOTY, releasing the attackers first, then midfielders, then defenders. Whether this is the new schedule for their Team of the Year rollout is unknown, but we do expect the promotion to begin in the middle of January, likely on Jan. 14.

If defenders come first from the TOTY promo, then Jan. 14 should be the date that they arrive. If they are the second set of TOTY items to be released, then they'll likely arrive Jan. 16, and the latest they should be released is Jan. 18.

Depending on the order EA choose, we can expect the TOTY defense and GK to arrive either of those three dates. Most likely, we expect TOTY Defenders to release on the last day. Let us know who you expect to make it into this year's TOTY.
