FIFA 22 POTM: Benzema September LaLiga Player Of The Month & October FUT Updates

FIFA 22 has been officially released and in between the normal FIFA 22 TOTW squads, we can also expect to see the return of Player of the Month SBC's landing very, very soon.

The LaLiga POTM award is awarded to the top-performing player from the Spanish top-flight over the course of last month. A shortlist is released prior to the award being announced, but we'll be tracking which players are in the running each week following the latest round of fixtures.

Once the players are announced, it's over to you, the fans, who are given the opportunity to vote for their winner.


The recipient of the award will then be handed a special Player of the Month item in FIFA 22's Ultimate Team, which can be unlocked via a limited-time Squad Building Challenge.
