How to make players run in FC 24

In order to make your players sprint in FC 24, you simply need to hold down R2 if you are on PlayStation or RT if you are on Xbox. We’ll assume that you already know that. Instead, you’re wondering how to control the runs of your teammates who aren’t in possession.

The ability to direct your teammates’ movement off the ball will be key to unlocking an opposition defence in FC 24. The best way to do this is by utilising the creative run feature.

First introduced in FIFA 21, the creative runs feature allows you to manually control the movement of your teammates whilst in possession of the ball. This is an incredibly useful tool to have, particularly when you’re attacking against an opposition with a deep lying defence.

Here are the steps to follow if you wish to trigger a creative run:

  • PlayStation: Whilst in possession of the ball, hit L1 and flick the right analogue stick to direct the run of your teammate.
  • Xbox: Whilst in possession of the ball, hit LB and flick the right analogue stick to direct the run of your teammate.

The creative run method takes some getting used to, but once you’ve got the hang of it, it is incredibly effective. The unpredictable and unorthodox nature of the off-the-ball will cause havoc with the opposition defenders, increasing your chances of creating a goalscoring opportunity.

That is everything you need to know about how to make players run in FC 24.
