Discover all you need to know about UEFA EURO integration in FC24. From teams to players, stay updated with the latest news and insights.

EA Sports ended its longstanding partnership with FIFA in 2022. FIFA 23 was the last installment of this footballing franchise, after 30 years of EA licensing the FIFA name. In its place, EA introduced FC 24. And in 2024, players get an exciting UEFA Euro 24 update.

The Euro 24 update builds on EA’s existing partnership with UEFA. FC 24 launched with several UEFA-licensed competitions:

  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Women’s Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • UEFA Europa Conference League
  • UEFA Super Cup

But this is the first time EA has included an official Euros tournament mode in 12 years. Players haven’t been able to enjoy this mode since the UEFA Euro 2012 add-on.

Why now?

The decision to expand the UEFA partnership may have been influenced by rumours that FIFA is working on FIFA 25. This is a new console title to rival the FC series. Gaming industry insiders have suggested that 2K Games is developing FIFA 25. 2K Games is the studio behind big sports franchises like NBA 2K and WWE 2K.

Commenting on the Euro 24 partnership, Guy-Laurent Epstein, UEFA Marketing Director, said:

“We are delighted to further expand our partnership with EA Sports, with UEFA Euro 2024 becoming a part of the EA Sports FC game. UEFA Euro 2024 is one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting football tournaments, and we’re thrilled that the huge EA Sports FC 24 community across the globe will get the chance to engage with the tournament in such an authentic gaming environment.”

What to expect from the Euro 2024 update

The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship is the 17th edition of the UEFA European Championship. Germany is the host. The UEFA Euro 24 add-on for FC 24 provides a realistic tournament experience, available to players at no extra cost. The update includes updates to clubs and players, reflecting players’ current standings and capabilities in the real world. This ensures that the in-game experience closely mimics the real-world tournament.
