Team of the Year is always one of the biggest events on the Ultimate Team calendar, and FIFA 23 has been no exception. Once again, EA has handed out incredible exclusive cards to the players who have lit up football over the past 12 months, from Lionel Messi to Kylian Mbappe.

Does FIFA 23 TOTY Honorable Mention Have A Release Date?

Unfortunately, EA hasn’t officially confirmed a release date for the FIFA 23 Honorable Mention cards, However, by looking at past years we may be able to figure out when they will arrive.

We expect the honorable mentions to continue Thursday, January 26, 2023, the same day that the entire TOTY squad hits packs. If it doesn’t, it could come the following day, Friday, January 27, to give players a full day to focus on the main team of the year.

as the name suggests, fifa 23 Honorable Mentions are awarded to players who did not earn enough votes to make the Team of the Year, but still had exceptional seasons worthy of recognition.

These special cards will be upgraded compared to their regular stats, but it won’t be as eye-watering as the TOTY winners. In the past, it used to have a higher overall rating than Aadhar card, but this is yet to be confirmed.

TOTY is always the biggest ultimate team event.
