TOTY Guide - Team of the Year of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team


Q: How the Team of the Year of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team is chosen ?
A: TOTY players are not chosen by EA Sports. They are chosen by the votes of thousands of professional players members of FIFPro, the worldwide representative organization for all professional football players.

Q: How can I know who are the players of Team of the Year of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team ?
A: Before January 13th you can only see the shortlist HERE. On that day, you can see in our website or live at the Ballon D’Or ceremony at Zurich’s Kongresshaus. Click HERE to see the TOTY players of FUT 14.

Q: How much increases the rating and the attributes of a player on a TOTY card ?
A: There is no rule about it but usually the rating increases 5 to 8 points. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.

Q: How many cards are on a TOTY ?
A: 11. One goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards.

Q: How can you get one of those cards ?
A: As usually, you can buy them on transfer market or you can get them on a pack. These cards are only available on packs by specific periods.

Q: Do I need to buy any special pack to have the chance of getting a TOTY cards ?
A: No. You can get a TOTY card in any gold packs with rare cards.

Q: When the TOTY is released ?
A: Monday night, January 13th, 2013 at the Ballon D’Or ceremony at Zurich’s Kongresshaus.

Q: When the first TOTY cards are released ?
A: Just after the FIFA World XI is made official, at 8pm (UK time).

Q: When these cards are released in packs ?
A: For each position there are specific dates :
Goalkeepers and Defenders – January 13th 8pm to January 15th 6pm;
Midfielders – January 15th 6pm to January 17th 6pm;
Forwards – January 17th 6pm to January 18th 6pm;

Q: The TOTY cards will not be released all together in packs ?
A: Probably. On the weekend January 25-26th or in January 18-19th.

Q: The TOTY cards are expensive ?
A: Yes. A lot. Several cards cost more than 1 million coins. They are the most expensive cards of the game.

Q: There will be happy hours and special packs as the popular 100k pack during the TOTY release ?
A: Probably yes.

Q: What happens to the market with the TOTY release ?
A: No one can be sure. It may crashes. In an attempt to get one of these millionaire cards, the players tend to sell almost everything, in order to get coins to invest in packs. The natural effect of this behaviour is to drop the cards’ prices. We think that the greatest drops will be only during the 100k packs and on the weekends (forwards and all team).

Q: When should I sell my players ?
A: We think that the best thing to do is to sell them before the new year.

  1. forno97 says:

    I have 1 million coins to spend on packs, when should i spend them (all on the weekend when the full toty is released or maybe 200k on defenders, 300k in midfielders, ecc…)?

    • Kevin Duser says:

      You have a better chance of getting a TOTY on the Weekend so i would recommend the Weekend or exactly when they are released in Packs. :-)

    • UjustGotEHEHed says:

      I recommend you go with your 2nd option as it would be more preferable to get midfielders and strikers (ribery, bale, ibrahimovic, ronaldo) as they would most probably cost more on the market. They would also be more fun to play with. So spend around 200k on goalkeepers and defenders, 350k on midfielders and 450k on forwards. But at the end of the day, it is your own choice. Choose carefully!

    • If they release all the TOTY players in a single weekend it will be a good time to try your luck. The best one.
      Try to buy always on happy hours to find the best packs.

    Hey rodrigo!
    So i’ve been confused about today and these packs. Is it not until weekend its possible to buy packs and have chance to get them all? Is it day by day goalkeeper, defenders then midfielders then strikers then in the weekend all players?

    • Check the schedule we published in this article. First, it will be released only GK and defenders. Two days later, only midfielders and two days later only forwards. There is a chance to see all players being released together in the weekend after the forwards.

  43. Patrik Daniel Mrozek says:

    Is it best to buy the packs today or wait until the weekend? Didnt quite get it if the release all today or keeper/def today midfield tomorrow attackers after that then the whole team.

  44. adrian says:

    hey Rodrigo, is it 100% confirmed that the whole TOTY will be released on the weekend, I don’t want to wait until then to open packs and find out its finished!

  48. Jeff says:

    Hi Rodrigo,
    I havent gotten a TOTY card but in case I do, when is the best time to sell them? Immediately, or after the TOTY release is over. (How will their prices change as time passes?)

  49. Justin Wong says:

    How Long will the toty be available in packs?

  50. ellis bradley says:

    Hi just wonderimg, i have a million coins and im going to get a 1 mil bpl team with all expensive players like aguero, hazard, etc. My question is, when abouts during the toty should i buy them or should i buy them now cause some of the prices are rising now. Cheers

  51. Andreas Holm says:

  52. Lukas says:

  56. pillnor says:

    Hey Rodrigo! When or if will regular players start rising again?

  57. Rajan Soni says:

    I just bought TOTY Lahm for 650k on the ps3. I want to sell him before the weekend so I can carry on trading. Would I get my money back tomorrow morning UK time when the least amount of cards are on the market, or on Thursday or Friday when the defenders are out of packs and do you think I will get my money back?

  58. Nicholas Kam says:

    When is The Best time to buy back your Team during TOTY . This is my situation , i want to buy this team it currently costs 640k and i have 530k PS3 , at what time would i probably able to afford it . In your opinion and your suggestions .

  59. rob waddell says:

    Will there be a time where you can get defenders/midfielders/forwards in packs?

  60. Recently my dad & I have been noticing players we have sold that were bought through packs come with 7 contracts, but when we sold them we have noticed on occasions the contracts have been removed, but NO games have been played.
    Please can you tell us how this is possible.

  61. anonymus says:

    Will all the TOTYS be out at one time? And if so, when?

  62. killo says:

    When will all the TOTYS available in packs at one time?thanks

  63. Tyler smaha says:

    If I am looking to buy ibra when should I during the toty? The prices have been fluctuating so much idk when the best time is

  64. Jay says:

    When should I buy Lewandowski? I’m guessing when the forwards are out because everyone will care about them

  65. Ace says:

    Hi Rodrigo. I have normal Ibrahimovic since few months back but I haven’t sold him. Is it too late to sell him now? Will his normal card price rise when the TOTY Ibra version is out? Thank u.

    • Hi.
      Most of the regular cards tend to get cheaper when the TOTYs are out. However, with the regular cards of TOTY players, it usually happen the opposite: they are more expensive now. Messi and Ronaldo are the exception. Maybe you should sell him now.

  66. killo says:

    When is the most likely date that all of the totys will be available in packs? This weekend (18-19th)

    • Since forwards will be released this Friday afternoon and they usually are available in packs for 2 days, I think it is more likely to have all cards available at the same time in January 25 and 26.

  67. NevioCarlo says:

    I want to buy some TOTY players, when is the best time to buy for example Dani Alves ?

    • The prices of TOTY cards have a behaviour very unexpected. It is difficult to know. The best time to buy a TOTY card is probably the last day they are available. For example: tomorrow for midfielders.

  68. Alex says:

    Which time does the midfielders get in packs in Sweden?

  69. conor says:

    On Fifa 13 they released all 11 Tory players in packs directly after the forwards. Would they not do the same for Fifa 14?

  70. Andres says:

    i have 800k in coins. if i spend all of it on packs do you think i have a strong possibility of getting any toty player?

  71. wout kamers says:


    Lucky me, got a toty Ramos!
    When should i sell him? He’s now selling for around the 610k, will his price be higher in a few days?

  72. Harry says:

    Hi when u say all the TOTY players will be out on the 25-26th weekend will their be TOTY out during the time between the 18-19th weekend and the 25-26th weekend

    • Harry: it is not official. We believe that all the TOTY players may be out on the 25-26th weekend. But it not guaranteed. According to what happened last year, they will be available on that weekend but not on the week days between the two weekends.

  73. killo says:

    When will we know when all the totys will be out?

  74. anonemouse says:

    why would it bhe the weekend 25-26 and not 18-19?

    • Hi.
      First of all, nobody said that it will be the weekend of 25-26. It was only a suggestion. 18-19 will be difficult since forwards will be released friday and they will be in packs by two days.

  75. Tyler smaha says:

    Ronaldo is going for between 1.7 and 1.8 mil on Xbox right now, if you had to guess, what do you think his price will drop to this weekend when the TOTY forwards are released and the entire team? I have around 1.5′mil and really want him

  76. killo says:

    When shud i use my 5000 fifa points?

  77. Dave says:

    after toty cards stop being released i.e after 26th, the supply would be low. Is it a good idea to buy a toty for about 700k (ramos) and selling later. Is his price likely to rise by a lot in say april when there are few toty cards on the market?

  78. FifaFreak10 says:

    Do you know when the deadline date to get any TOTY player in a pack is?

  79. Andrew Qumsieh says:

    After all the Toty players r released r they still possible to get in normal packs?? or is it only now when they get released???

  80. killo says:

    Is there any chance all the TOTYS could be released tonight,along with the forwards?

  81. andrewmichie says:

    When is the best time to tade? When will the market crash be at its best

  82. andrewmichie says:

    When will 100k packs be out

  83. killo says:

    When will all TOTYS not be available in packs anymore?

  84. matt says:

    I have 300k and want to build an expensive team. if I build an expensive team now will they drop in price or are they gonna get higher

  85. Haddin says:

    Hi Rodrigo
    I got Normal Ronaldo in a pack yesterday
    So should I sell him now or after Toty ?
    Now his price is around 1.4 m on ios

  86. Kaas says:

    When come all players together in packs?

  87. Sam says:

    When will 100k packs be out for toty

  88. David says:

    When does the opportunity to get toty in packs end?

  89. Jens says:

    is there only one 100k pack for each person?
    and will all the toty only be available this weekend, or next weekend as well?

  90. Tom says:

    100k packs are currently available and i bought loads of players that are usually worth 4000-5000coins for 650-1000coins and now they’re worth only 850-1000… will their prices go up at all when toty has passed?

  91. s4ndz says:

    Got IF Damia on the 100k pack.. rest all were discard players .. :(

    how much will that sell for?

  92. dankar says:

    Hi Rodrigo,

    As I understood from all the above comments and replies,

    All the 11 TOTY players are now available till today in packs until 6 pm (GMT time) ,So the best chance to get any TOTY player in pack is today before 6 pm GMT time?

    My 9 year old son insisting to buy him a pack ( I have 600k coin now)
    Kindly I have 2 questions :

    What would be the best pack to buy with the best chance to get one of the TOTY players

    There is 3 options now:

    100k pack (Jumbo rare players pack)
    35k pack (Mega)
    15k pack (gold)


    If i have FIFA points ..could it be transferred to coins?

    Thanking you in advance.

  93. Madrid says:

    Hi Rodrigo,
    I have 4 questions:
    1) I baught a bunch of packs with fifa points while the happy hours where on. I didnt get any toty informs but I got valuable players like Suarez, Vidic, Willian, Oscar etc. Should I sell them now, or should I wait a bit for about a week or so?
    2) In the same packs I also got a bunch of discard players.Now that toty are no longer available will the price rise for at leat 1k each?
    3) I also tried to invest on some cheap players that I thought their prices would rise after the market crash. For example I mananged to get Cavani for 5k. His price has risen a bit but not that much as I first thought, should I wait for another week or should I sell now?
    4) In one of the packs I got inform Adrian from West Ham, should I sell him now or wait for a week untill the market has recovered completly?
    Thanks for your time.

    • Hi.
      1) Wait a bit more.
      2) Discard players ? What is that ? Players that have no commercial value ? Discard prices never change.
      3) Nobody can be sure but I think it will raise a bit more, yes.
      4) Wait one week if possible.

      • George says:

        Hi Rodrigo, thanks a lot for your help… When I meant discard players I meant players which werent very usefull (75-81 rated players in bad leages or with bad attributes). My mistake as I often play fut in spanish and I didnt realise that discarding players was quickselling them, so nevermind and thank a lot for all of your help with this specific topic and many other topics such as the formation guide etc. On the other hand I’m following your advice and are selling everything this monday, hoping to get to about 250k to 300k. Because of this I started researching trading tips etc and got a bit confused. When I started reading about the peak hours I couldnt figure out at what time I should sell and at what time I should buy. I know that the peak hour takes place from 3:30 pm to 12:00 am (uk time) yet I dont know if I should sell inside this lapse of time or buy. So basically I have 2 questions:
        1) The peak time is a wide lapse of time between 3:30 pm and 12:00 am uk time, so 5:30 pm is part of the peak hour or am I wrong? Isn’t any peak hour supposed to be shorter?
        2) Should I sell my players inside the peak time and buy outside of it, or should I buy inside the peak time and sell outside of it? Ive read both versions one saying that selling inside the peak time is better as there are more buyers and the other version saying that buying inside the peak time is better as there are more sellers.

    Help i don’t know what to do. I bought a toty ibra a few weeks ago for 4.830.000 and played with it but know his price is rapidly dropping (because of the tots coming up?) and i don’t know if i should sell him for maybe a loss of 300k or wait until his price rises again.
