FIFA 23 Team of the Year: How to choose the 12th Man

FIFA 23 has released its final eleven for Team of the Year (TOTY), but there were some notable exceptions.

The three most-voted runner-ups for TOTY have been counted and will be available to vote for in the 12th man vote.

We’ve rounded up all the players you can choose from, and when and how you can vote, and you’ll also get a loan card of your favourite.

Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23’s 12th Man vote.

FIFA 23 TOTY 12th Man: All nominees

This year FIFA has changed up the formula by allowing one player from each category into the 12th Man vote.

This means instead of three forwards, you can vote for either an attacker, a midfielder, or a defender.

Here are the choices:

  • Defender: João Cancelo – Manchester City
  • Midfielder: Federico Valverde – Real Madrid
  • Attacker: Erling Haaland – Manchester City

The 12th Man will get a fully upgraded TOTY card in FUT, so this is your chance to get another very powerful player for your club.

FIFA 23 TOTY 12th Man: How to vote for your favourite

Voting for the 12th Man is going to be a bit different than voting for your favorite TOTY nominees.

However, if you follow these steps to vote for the FIFA 23 TOTY 12th Man, it’s simple enough.

  1. Launch FIFA 23 and enter FIFA Ultimate Team or log into the FIFA 23 Companion/Web app.
  2. Wait for a Player Pick screen to appear.
  3. Select your favourite from the 12th Man candidates.
  4. Don’t forget to confirm your choice to actually cast your vote.

After your vote is cast successfully, you’ll get a one-game loan item of the player you chose.

FIFA 23 TOTY 12th Man: When can I vote?

The FIFA 23 TOTY 12th Man vote will become available on January 23, 2023, at 8am PT / 11am ET / 6pm GMT / 7pm CET. 

It might take a few minutes for it to show up in the game after this time, but keep refreshing and it should appear. 

You can also try to navigate through the menus a bit. Sometimes Player Pick screens tend to appear when you enter the store.
