It's that time of the footballing season where the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees are revealed, celebrating their achievements over the academic year of 2021. Unlike other popular FIFA 22 promos, where players are released at random, the Team of the Year is your chance to vote for which players you think have performed the best over the last 12 months (even with some bias towards who will be best in-game), and finally have your voice heard.

The FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees are the most anticipated promotion of the year, with each player that wins earning a respective TOTY card that eclipses any other promotion in the game, often seeing the 95+ ratings splattered across the starting XI.

So, with four categories to vote in (Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers), here's the full list of the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees...

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees: Goalkeepers

  • Thibaut Courtois
  • Ederson Moraes
  • Emiliano Martinez
  • Edouard Mendy
  • Gianluigi Donnarumma
  • Mike Maignan
  • Jan Oblak

Seven names made themselves into the list for the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees in the goalkeeper category, with representation from around the globe. As with many of FIFA's promotions, fans may opt to vote for a keeper that will fit into their teams, so it could be a good time to push for a Donnarumma or Ederson to be a brick wall between the sticks for your Ultimate Team.

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees: Defenders

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees Defenders

  • João Cancelo
  • Kyle Walker
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold
  • Achraf Hakimi
  • Jesús Navas
  • Kieran Trippier
  • Rúben Dias
  • César Azpilicueta
  • Antonio Rüdiger
  • Cristian Romero
  • Marquinhos
  • Mats Hummels
  • Giorgio Chiellini
  • Leonardo Bonucci
  • Simon Kjær
  • Milan Škriniar
  • David Alaba
  • Jules Koundé
  • Luke Shaw
  • Reinildo Mandava
  • Christian Günter
  • Alphonso Davies
  • Theo Hernández
  • Jordi Alba
  • Leonardo Spinazzola

Making up the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees in the defender's category is a mixture of speedy full-backs to no-nonsense centre-halves. Some players may be alarmed at the omission of the previous TOTY pairing of Virgil Van Dijk and Sergio Ramos, although the European Cup has highlighted the likes of Chiellini and Ruben Dias alongside PSG's dominating Marquinhos.

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees: Midfielders

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees Midfielders

  • N'Golo Kanté
  • Declan Rice
  • Fabinho
  • Joshua Kimmich
  • Manuel Locatelli
  • Casemiro
  • Kevin De Bruyne
  • Jorginho
  • Marco Verratti
  • Lucas Paquetá
  • Leon Goretzka
  • Jude Bellingham
  • Nicolò Barella
  • Marcos Llorente
  • Pedri
  • Luka Modrić
  • Bruno Fernandes
  • Phil Foden
  • Mason Mount
  • Thomas Müller
  • Dani Olmo
  • Florian Wirtz
  • Nabil Fekir
  • Son Heung-min
  • Filip Kostic
  • Luis Díaz

Chelsea's midfield duo of N'golo Kante and Jorginho lead the way in the voting for Ballon D'Or, gaining a fifth and third place ranking respectively, closely followed by Kevin De Bruyne and Mason Mount - all of whom are named in the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees. However, fierce competition for in-game maestros may come from the likes of Luka Modric, Fabinho, and Joshua Kimmich as players look to reinforce their own squads with ball-winners.

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees: Attackers

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees Attackers

  • Karim Benzema
  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Harry Kane
  • Romelu Lukaku
  • Kylian Mbappé
  • Jonathan David
  • Robert Lewandowski
  • Erling Haaland
  • Ciro Immobile
  • Lautaro Martínez
  • Dušan Vlahovic
  • Luis Suárez
  • Gerard Moreno
  • Neymar
  • Lorenzo Insigne
  • Mikel Oyarzabal
  • Jack Grealish
  • Dimitri Payet
  • Dušan Tadic
  • Mohamed Salah
  • Lionel Messi
  • Federico Chiesa

As the most eccentric category, the Ballon D'Or shareholders Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both could be the popular choices for the FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees, whilst Mo Salah may also be a popular choice after his below-expected finish in the accolade. As per usual, the forward nominees are some of the most flamboyant players in the world, so if you cast only one vote this year, you may want to get your favourite player over the line.

Fans will be able to select and share their starting XI for the 2021 FIFA 22 TOTY during the voting period which begins on Monday, January 10th, 2022 at 04:00pm GMT / 8:00 AM PST and runs until January 18, 2022 at 07:59am GMT / January 17, 2022 at 11:59 PM PST.
