The FIFA 20 TOTS (Team of the Season) event is a little different from previous years, and there are no prizes for guessing why. Since the coronavirus outbreak has left football at a standstill with matches left unplayed and leagues paused—perhaps indefinitely—this year it's the FIFA 20 TOTSSF (Team of the Season So Far).
But the central thrust behind the latest Ultimate Team promotion remains the same: celebrating the very best footballers in each league so far this season in one of the biggest events in the FUT calendar. As ever we'll be getting unique, boosted cards with which to enhance squads based on the games that have actually been played this year. I'll go into the specifics of how it works this season below.
When is the FIFA 20 Community TOTS release date?
We'll know the community Team of the Season today, April 24, 2020, at 6pm BST (1pm EDT/10am PDT). I'll include the list of finalists in full here then, so stay tuned to this page later today. If you want a reminder of the nominations we've been voting on, check out the full list on Futwiz.
How the FIFA 20 TOTSSF works this year
Given the unprecedented times in which we find ourselves, arguably the biggest event in the FIFA Ultimate Team calendar is different this year. Since the coronavirus may have ended football leagues across the world prematurely, the FIFA 20 TOTSSF has been voted on by FIFA community sites Futwiz and Futhead. Voting on the original shortlist is now closed.
There are a few rules to keep in mind. No more than five players from the same league will feature in the final 23-player squad, and there must be at least two goalkeepers, six defenders, six midfielders, and, three forwards. Then TOTS squads for the major leagues will likely follow.
