TOTY is one of the significant events in the Ultimate Team calendar, and it is on its way into FC 24 – that means it’s time for our prediction for the men’s squad!
The Team of the Year will comprise 11 of the world’s best men’s football players. These will be voted for by FC 24 fans.
If you have been around the community a long time, you will know it’s more so “who the best Ultimate Team items are” rather than based on merit. So, without delay, let’s head into the predictions and who we think will make the FC 24 men’s TOTY!
Here is our prediction for the FC 24 men’s TOTY squad:
Alisson (Liverpool & Brazil)
By many, Alisson is considered the best goalkeeper in the world. While the first half of 2023 did not go too well for Liverpool, Alisson was a consistent performer and has continued to be world-class.
Additionally, he is a Premier League player, and the FC 24 community loves to vote in items from this league.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool & England)
In truth, Trent doesn’t deserve a spot in TOTY, but this is the FC 24 fan base we are talking about. When it comes to the nominees list, there aren’t many great options.
He is English, from the Premier League, and has the overpowered Long Ball PlayStyle+ on his regular item. He most likely makes the team.
Rúben Dias (Manchester City & Portugal)
This is probably the first player on the list who makes the team on merit. Rúben Dias ended the first half of 2023 by winning the treble with Manchester City.
For his performances and help in winning those trophies, he has a high probability of making the FC 24 men’s TOTY squad.
Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool & the Netherlands)
Virgil van Dijk, known to many as VVD, is one of the best CBs in FC 24. Due to this alone, he will likely be included.
VVD had a rocky start to 2023 but has since ended the year strong, captaining Liverpool to the top of the Premier League as these predictions were made.
Theo Hernández (AC Milan & France)
Theo Hernández is a fan-favorite in Ultimate Team. He is tall, quick, strong, good passing, and just overpowered.
Due to him being meta in FC 24, we suspect the player base will vote him in. However, AC Milan did get to the Champions League semi-finals, so it does have some merit.
Federico Valverde (Real Madrid & Uruguay)
Valverde is in the Top 5 CMs in FC 24, and we will be surprised if he doesn’t get voted in. If the community decides to switch things up and vote for players who deserve it, we could see Rodri get in.
A TOTY Valverde would be a highly popular item, and if he gets one, it will cost over 2 million coins, in our opinion.
Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid & England)
Jude has taken the world by storm, starring for his new club, Real Madrid. The Englishman is a popular player, and coupled with an excellent 2023, he has a great shot at making the squad.
Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City & Belgium)
Kevin de Bruyne is by far one of the best midfielders in the world, and his performances showed it for Man City at the beginning of 2023.
Unfortunately, an injury has kept him out for the second half, but he is so good we don’t think that will matter for voters.
Kylian Mbappé (PSG & France)
This one feels self-explanatory. Mbappé is one of the best players in the world and the best gold item in FC 24.
It will be a major shock if he is omitted. We would go as far as saying he is a definite for the squad.
Erling Haaland (Man City & Norway)
Haaland broke all kinds of goalscoring records, won the treble, and was crucial in all those trophy wins. Like Mbappé, we feel like this is a guarantee.
Lionel Messi (Inter Miami & Argentina)
Messi won the Balon d’Or, so his inclusion feels pretty much definitive. It will be one of the first TOTY items outside the Top 5 leagues.
FC 24 Men’s TOTY Expected Release Date
Here are the expected FC 24 Men’s TOTY release dates, according to reliable insiders who also got the voting date correct:
- TOTY begins on Friday, January 19, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT
- The Attackers, Midfielders, and Defenders will be released in batches over a week. This is based on previous years’ releases.
- Full TOTY release on Friday, January 26, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT
This means the event will begin in if the leaks are accurate.
