When will the FUT15 TOTY 2015 be released?

TOTY 2015 Card  FUT15 Team Of The Year Details and Schedule TOTY CardThe TOTY players will be released into packs in stages starting after the announcement of the FIFAPro World XI and based on last years schedule the release dates/times will be as follows:

  • Goalkeeper and Defenders: Monday 12th January 2015, 8pm to Wednesday 14th January 2015, 6pm.
  • Midfielders: Wednesday 14th January 2015, 6pm to Friday 16th January 2015, 6pm.
  • Forwards: Friday 16th January 2015, 6pm to Saturday 17th January 2015, 6pm.

Following on from last year, this year we’re expecting all cards to be released in packs together for 24 hours at the end of the week, between Saturday 17th January 2015, 6pm and Sunday 18th January 2015, 6pm.

Look out for Happy Hours and special promotion packs during the week that will give you increased chances of getting Team of the Year players. You can follow us on Twitter for updates.

The Professionals pick their FUT15 Team of the Year

Watch Rio Ferdinand, Joey Barton, Kyle Walker and FIFA’s strongest ever player, Adebayo Akinfenwa predict who’ll be in FIFA 15’s Team of the Year. The “round table” give some interesting insights from inside the professional game.

Do you agree with their choices?

EA SPORTS are also offering you the chance to win every player in Akinfenwa’s predicted team (untradeable versions) by retweeting the following tweet. (You’ll need to be quick though!)

You can also retweet this for a chance to win Kyle Walker’s predicted TOTY squad.

Will there be a TOTY market crash?

There probably won’t be the market crash that most people are predicting (or hoping for) but you should see a dip in player prices as people clear out their squads looking to free up coins to buy TOTY packs.

The exception would be the very top players. Messi and Ronaldo have already dropped 200K in value at time of writing (although their prices were already really inflated) and could drop even more leading up to the release of the TOTY strikers. It should definitely be a buyers market.

The FUT market price dips aren’t just directly down to TOTY though. Indirectly, in the ‘black’ FUT market coin sellers are hiking up their prices in a bid to cash in on people’s rush to stock up their coins for TOTY packs which will have a noticeable knock on effect to Ultimate Team trading. Remember – buy coins at your own risk!

If you’re planning on opening packs this week then GOOD LUCK!!!
