When TOTS (Team of the Season) Starts in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team
Team of the Season (TOTS) is one of the most exciting periods in FIFA every year, breathing new life into the game as the European domestic seasons come to a close. Over the course of nearly two months, we get new squads from every major league, giving us the chance to use some of the best players in the game and powerful versions of fan favorites. Soon, it’ll be time for FIFA 18 to join the TOTS excitement.
EA Sports hasn’t actually revealed when TOTS is due to start, but by looking at previous years and the Promo Events schedule, it’s easy to make an educated guess. First of all, the World Cup is happening in Russia this summer, which means TOTS will be pushed forward so that it doesn’t overlap, as it was in 2014. It will have to be sometime around the end of April/beginning of May to allow enough time for all the squads to be released before the World Cup begins in mid-June. In 2014, the ‘Most Consistent’ TOTS (Team of the Season), which is usually the first, was released into packs on April 23, so we can expect it to be a similar time this year.
Then, if you look at the currently running Swap Deals Promo, it may point to the start date of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team’s TOTS. The SBCs expire on Friday, April 27, which is likely the same day that TOTS will begin. Aside from European Team of the Knockout Stage, which will likely release next week (April 13), after the Quarter Final second legs have been played, Swap Deals is the final Promo due before TOTS in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Therefore, a release date of April 27 for the Most Consistent team would make sense. It wouldn’t clash with anything else and would leave enough time before the World Cup begins. Of course, this hasn’t been confirmed and we will update this piece as soon as the date is finalized.
