EA to name the best footballers of 2017 for FIFA

via press release

The best footballers of 2017 will be named in EA SPORTS FIFA Team of The Year. For the first time ever, the EA SPORTS FIFA Team of The Year (TOTY) will be voted on by a carefully curated list of media, athletes and EA SPORTS FIFA community members, representing the millions of EA SPORTS FIFA players all over the world.

Ballot recipients will receive a custom-built ballot box that includes a shortlist of football’s most elite 55 players, nominated by EA SPORTS for their real-world performance in 2017.

Each ballot recipient will cast their vote by posting a photo on social media of their TOTY, consisting of three attackers, three midfielders, four defenders and one goalkeeper in a 4-3-3 formation. Ballots will make up 60 per cent of the total vote and EA SPORTS makes up the other 40 per cent. Follow along as votes are revealed with #TOTYVote.

The final Team of The Year will be announced starting on 15th January, with special TOTY player items available in packs for a limited time in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team and FIFA Mobile.
