Team of the Year (TOTY) arrived in FIFA Mobile as well and with this occasion EA Sports released a series of special, high-rated player items.

Obtaining Team of The Year Player Items

There are two ways to get Team of the Year Player Items: Finding them in TOTY Packs or completing TOTY Player Plans.

1. TOTY Special Packs

Throughout the week, there will be several different Pack and Bundles with the chance of finding a Team of the Year Player in one.

2. TOTY Player Plans

If you are unable to find TOTY Player items in Packs, you can also earn them by completing TOTY Player Plans. 

TOTY Player Packs and Plans unlock over the course of the week, broken up by their position types (Goalkeepers & Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers).

Each TOTY Player Plan requires a specific number of Items to complete, which includes using current Silver, Gold, and Elite Player Items, Elite Trophies, as well as other, player-specific TOTY Tokens. 

Team of the Year Packs may also contain the items required to complete these Plans. Even if you don’t manage to pull a TOTY Player in one, you may get the pieces required to complete a specific Player’s TOTY Plan.

Team of the Year Tokens

If you’ve been completing the In Form Master Plans since the launch of FIFA Mobile, you will have received a TOTY Token. With Team of the Year event kicked off, you can redeem these TOTY Tokens in one of two Plans to earn a TOTY Player Token or other Player Items to help you complete the different TOTY Plans. The more TOTY Tokens you’ve earned, the closer you are to unlocking different TOTY Player Items.
