The Team of the Season promo is drawing to a close in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, with the Ultimate TOTS set to enter packs soon – but what will come after that?

With European Cup competitions now ended, the door is open for some major upgrades to come, celebrating the best performers from the three campaigns.

Here is our selection of players that could end up seeing a Europa League Team of the Tournament card arrive soon in FIFA 22.

UEL Team of the Tournament

The Europa League has brought us another enthralling competition, with Frankfurt beating Rangers in the final to be crowned champions.

With a Team of the Tournament arriving in FIFA in previous years, we’ve taken a look at 11 players who should be in for a major boost in FIFA 22.

You can also check out our selections for the Champions League TOTT and Europa Conference League TOTT.

Kevin Trapp

TOP STOPPER – Trapp was a wall in goal

If it wasn’t for Kevin Trapp, Frankfurt almost certainly wouldn’t have won the cup.

With monumental saves throughout the competition, there is no other candidate for the goalkeeping spot on the side.

James Tavernier

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC – Tavernier was cool from the spot on multiple occasions

The competition’s top scorer, James Tavernier heads up the chart with seven goals – pretty good going for a right-back!

He also provided two assists as he played every minute for Rangers in their run to the final.

Craig Dawson

COOL MAN – Dawson was always calm in defense

West Ham did not manage to reach that much wanted final, but throughout their run Craig Dawson was solid.

When others around him lost their heads (looking at you Aaron Cresswell …), the big man kept his cool, using his head to the Hammers’ advantage by scoring twice.

Martin Hinteregger

SOLID – Hinteregger made his time on the pitch count

Another man from the team that won the final, Martin Hinteregger was a defensive rock for his side.

He made the third-most tackles and clearances and is high in the charts for balls recovered, despite only playing nine matches.

Calvin Bassey

WANTED MAN – Top performances mean the big clubs are wanting this man’s signature

Calvin Bassey really caught the eye as he represented the Rangers.

His speed and physicality made it look like he was playing against children at times, including a memorable recovery run and tackle in the final after an unfortunate slip made it seem certain that Frankfurt would score.

Konrad Laimer

TOUCH OF CLASS – Laimer bossed the midfield

RB Leipzig was one of the favorites for the competition, but could not make it past an inspired Rangers side.

Konrad Laimer may have gone under the radar for some, but his composure on the ball to get his side playing showed the man class.

Declan Rice

LEADING MAN – West Ham’s star man might not be there much longer

Declan Rice has had another brilliant season, nearly dragging his West Ham side to the final.

How much longer he stays at the club is questionable, as it is clear he belongs on the biggest European stages.

Filip Kostic

KILLER CROSSER – Kostic is deadly when putting balls in from wide areas

With three goals and six assists, the crossing machine that is Filip Kostic ended up with the joint-most goal contributions and also led the assists chart.

Given the amount of quality crosses he put in, he could have ended up with even more numbers to his name!

Christopher Nkunku

SPECIAL ONE – Nkunku has amassed many special cards already in FUT22

One of the in-form players of the season, Christopher Nkunku has shown his class no matter the competition.

Four goals in six matches and some more stellar performances could see him pick up a 13th FUT card of the season!

Rafael Borre

BRILLIANT BORRE – The Colombian was vital for Frankfurt’s play style

Rafael Borre offered a total attacking threat as he led the line for Frankfurt.

His runs in behind, mixed with strong holdup play, meant he managed four goals and two assists during the campaign.

Ryan Kent

ATTACK DOG – Kent is a scary prospect for any defender

A constant annoyance to any opposition, Ryan Kent hunts the ball down and puts defenders under pressure like few other attackers.

He would have hoped for more than his one goal and four assists, but his energy always put Rangers on the front foot throughout the tournament.
