Team of the Year (TOTY), released once per year, is a team made by the players who really played well during the calendar year according to the FIFPro's voting and announced in the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala. In this guide, you will know everything about FIFA 17 TOTY cards, including ratings and stats boosts, cards price fluctuation, frequently asked questions and to be updated nominees shortlist.


These very special blue cards which becomes available in packs for a week, are assigned only to eleven players (a goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards), that can be of any league and quality. In the week a player gets his TOTY card in packs without finding hid regular card there. Your odds of pulling a TOTY card from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the regular card of that player in another week, which means you card keep the same when you own regular card of a TOTY player and you need to buy the relevant TOTY version if the improved version is in demand, but it has to mention that you can't use regular card and the TOTY card of the same player in your squads at the same time.


In FUT 17, TOTY cards will be available from January 9th, 2017 (Monday) to January 16th, 2017 (Monday) and are announced on the Ballon D'Or Gala at 5:30pm (UK time) and released in packs at 8pm.


So how big are the ratings and stats boosts? It's usual that the players ratings and stats of FIFA 17 TOTY cards are boosted in six or seven points. However, there is less chance for the forwards to increase because Ronaldo and Messi are already highly rated. The attributes have a same increase but not all attributes have to be improved. By the way, the position of the players in these cards may change according to their excellent performance in a new position.


Of cousre, we care about TOTY cards price. During this week cards price fluctuates before and after TOTY release, so I'll brief the situation here.


1. Before TOTY release, there are some players planning to build their squads in January, as buying the best players will cost them the same as how much they’d spend building an average team in the beginning, so any others decide to monetise their teams. Because the series of selling and buying actions, the market encounters a more severe devaluation, and price falls.


2. After TOTY release, players that feature in the FIFA 17 Team of the Year should slightly increase in price as their regular card is no longer available in packs. Owing to FIFA 17 TOTY players are the ones with best stats, so they are expensive. The price are high. The players will be at their highest prices when they first become available in packs, due to a lack of supply and excessive demand and will fall throughout their release, especially when all the players are available.
