FUT players across the globe are gearing up for the biggest and best promo on the FIFA 22 Ultimate Team calendar - Team of the Season (TOTS)!

The excitement has been building since the official release date was revealed and the vote opened up last week.

So, find out how you can best prepare your FUT 22 club for the TOTS campaign.

TOTS start date

It's official, FIFA 22 Ultimate Team's Team of the Season (TOTS) promo will begin on Friday, 29 April.

The TOTS campaign will kick off with the Community squad, as voted for by you, the fans.

The Community TOTS cards will be released into packs at approximately 1pm ET / 6pm BST on the day of release.

Patience is key

Now, you may have heard popular content creators or FUT Twitter accounts barking on about saving packs for Team of the Season, but there is a right and a wrong way to do this.

LUCK OF THE DRAW - Will you get lucky during TOTS?

You don't want to be saving absolutely ALL of your packs for when the Team of the Season squads are released - this is because you need to keep the flow of players and coins coming into your club over a couple of weeks prior to the promo.

What we would recommend is saving ALL player packs, including mixed player packs, but not all non-player packs.

You should open any non-player packs that are worth 30,000 coins or less which includes Mega Packs.

Opening these packs will not only provide you with players and consumable items that you can sell for coins on the transfer market but also players that you can submit into SBCs in order to save larger, more valuable packs for TOTS.

Maximise your potential

Luckily, there are a few different ways of building up loads of packs in Ultimate Team right now.

SBCs & Objectives

Firstly, it's important to complete any objectives and SBCs that offer good pack rewards, such as the 86+ Double Upgrade that was released recently.

You can stay up to date with all the latest SBCs that are currently available in Ultimate Team right here.

The Silver Beasts objective which is released weekly can be completed whilst unlocking Icon Swap tokens and provides you with a 50k pack.

Icon Swaps

Icon Swaps 2 provides a great opportunity to unlock some of the biggest and best all-player packs in Ultimate Team.

The following pack rewards are available to unlock during Icon Swaps 2:

  • 2 Tokens - 81+ 25 Player Pack
  • 3 Tokens - 82+ 25 Player Pack
  • 5 Tokens - 83+ 25 Player Pack

You simply MUST take advantage of these packs and save them for when the TOTS players are in packs, as this might just be your best chance of packing one!

FUT Draft

Playing FUT Drafts is one of the easiest ways to build up your packs ahead of the Team of the Year promo.

Entering into a FUT Draft costs 15,000 coins or 300 FIFA Points.

FUT Draft is actually very enjoyable at the moment with all promo players and Prime Icons currently available to pull.

Having said this, the FUT Draft method relies on your ability as a FIFA player more than anything, as the further you progress through the rounds, the better pack rewards you will receive.

League SBC Grind

League SBCs are challenges that EA drops every year within Ultimate Team.

For every team that you submit, you receive some pack reward, whilst you also receive a group reward once you complete the entire SBC.

The group reward is always a better pack compared to the subsections within the SBC.

League SBCs are repeatable in FIFA 22, which means you can grind these constantly!
