What is POTM?
In 2016, EA and Premier League moved their relationship to another level by introducing Player of the Month, sponsored by Electronic Arts. The release of the game back then was FIFA 17. To the fans of football simulator games, EA's FIFA is the most authentic football game in the world, as EA is entitled to use the real names of the clubs and players in the game.
Once a player wins the POTM title, he will be rewarded a powered-up FUT card and a plaque from EA Sports. The POTM cards in FIFA are very unique cards that are rarely found when the players complete SBC's, and you cannot sell those POTM FUT Cards. You've ought to use them or they'll expire. With a POTM card in your squad, you'll be able to make a lot of FUT 20 coins; almost unbeatable!
How is the POTM Selected?
The POTM title is given to football players of Premier League and other leagues based on their performance in the timespan of 1 month. The POTM is chosen by a set of votes from Football experts, captains of the Premier League teams, and also public votes (which affects only 10% of the results).
POTM for Bundesliga and Other Leagues
EA moved forward, after the first years of success with sponsoring Premier League, to sign sponsorship contracts with other leagues such as Bundesliga, League 1 and MLS.
How to vote for the POTM
In order to register your vote for POTM, first you need to visit EA's POTM page. There, you'd be able to choose from:
- Premier League POTM
- Bundesliga POTM
- League 1 Conforama POTM (& Domino's League 2)
After clicking on the desired league, you'd be directed to a league-specific page for voting, and as for League 1, you'd be redirected to a completely different website. But the other two leagues will acquire your vote inside EA's website.

Now, in other times of visiting the voting page, you'd see a list of nominated players to vote for as the player of the very month that you're visiting the page on. It means, the visitors will be able to vote for only the time-span of that 30 days or less that's left to elect the next POTM. You can't vote for next 2 months or so.

Based on what criteria should you pick your players? You must watch the POTM video of each month in which the players' top scores (or defences in case of goalees) are compiled in a short video.
However, if you haven't seen the video yet, you don't have to go anywhere. Just pick one of the players randomly. Then you'd be able to see the video in the next page. After watching the video, you'd be able to change your choice:
As you can see, the video is ready to watch after you choose a random player from the list. Now, if you scroll down, you'd see the options to change the player:
