It’s not December yet, but EA has already given us an early Christmas present! The leaks had been rumbling, but it is now officially confirmed. UEFA EURO 2024 will be coming in FC 24!

There are a few ways in which the tournament will be celebrated, both in-game and on the pro circuit. Much like we saw with the World Cup celebrations in FIFA 23, this should be a big release for FC 24 Ultimate Team!

Check out all you need to know about the EURO 2024 announcement in FC 24 below, including when it will be released and what gifts are in store.

FC 24 x UEFA EURO 2024

EA Sports has announced that UEFA EURO 2024 will be coming in FC 24! Players across FC 24, FC Mobile, and FC Online on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android devices will be treated to the international tournament.

Coming as a free in-game update in the summer of 2024, UEFA EURO 2024 will be available to all players. Its release will coincide with the tournament kicking off.

“We’re delighted to announce that one of next summer’s biggest football tournaments will be fully integrated across EA SPORTS FC titles,” said David Jackson, Vice President of Brand for EA SPORTS FC. “Alongside our fantastic partners at UEFA, this exclusive Euros content will enable EA SPORTS to continue delivering the most authentic and innovative football experiences for our fans.”

As with the World Cup in FIFA 23, we should see the EURO 2024 tournament come as a separate game mode in the title. Expect to see it celebrated in Ultimate Team too! Extended promo events will likely cover the campaign, with boosted items and Live cards that upgrade throughout the weeks.

On top of that, EA Sports will be the official platform for UEFA’s eEURO esports program! This is a new tournament that will feature Europe’s best FC players, where they represent national football teams.

The eEURO tournament will be an annual event starting in the summer of 2024. It will consist of qualification stages, leading to a live final to decide the winner!

As part of the EURO announcement, a free gift will be issued to FC 24 users! All you have to do is play the game by January 16, 2024, to earn an exclusive, untradeable Ultimate Team player item.
