We’ve known for a while now that EA FC 24 would feature a UEFA Euro 2024 update. Finally, we’ve got a confirmed date for it.

All the way back in 2023, EA confirmed that its latest football sim would be getting bespoke content for this Summer’s UEFA Euro Championship. This came as welcome news to those with a copy of the game, especially after the game rights to the last UEFA Competition were granted to EA’s main competitor, the PES franchise.

Since that confirmation last year, there was complete radio silence. Now, with the tournament set to start in just over a week, we’ve finally got some more information- a tweet from the EA Sports FC’s X account told us that the Euro Update will be coming on June 6th.

We didn’t get any more concrete information than that. We already know that the update will feature new national kits and that it will be free to play for everyone who already owns the game. Beyond that nothing is confirmed. The last time an EA title featured content to go along with a major tournament was for the 2022 World Cup. If this update is anything similar you can expect a tournament mode, both single-player and online, as well as a tonne of Champions (AKA Ultimate Team) content.

It’s looking likely this content will take the form of a ‘Path To Glory’ promo. This includes both Icon and Hero cards whose stats will change based on the player’s real-life performance in the tournament. So far all this information is based on leaks so should be taken with a pinch of salt. If it does prove true, the timing couldn’t be better with the Ultimate TOTs cards leaving the game mode imminently.

If more speculation is to be believed, we can also expect Evolution and Friendly Cups with a Euro 2024 theme to be released, as well as themed stadiums and accompanying atmospheres. Just how much of this will be released tomorrow remains to be seen. Remember too, that much of the specifics of the modes and cards released will be impacted by how the tournament itself actually progresses.
