Our picks for the best teams to rebuild in EA FC 24 Career Mode are based on the club’s recent history and current condition. They vary from promotion candidates to European royalty who appear to have lost their way.

Tactical Vision brings additional depth to EA FC 24 Career Mode.

Leicester City

The Foxes defied the odds when they miraculously lifted the Premier League title during the 15/16 season. They then embarked on a UCL run that saw them reach the Quarter-Finals before winning the FA Cup just two years ago. In summary, Leicester City doesn’t belong in the Championship, and it’s your job to bring top-flight football back to the King Power Stadium.

Talents such as Wout Faes and Kelechi Ihenacho should get you there with ease, and winning the Golden Boot with Jamie Vardy would put a lovely bow on the story.

FC Schalke

The downfall of the mighty Schalke must be studied as one of the most successful German clubs of all time have now receded to the second division of the Bundesliga, and are still struggling. Who doesn’t remember their heroic run in the 2015 UCL Round of 16 against Real Madrid where they won 4-3 but lost on aggregate by just a goal?

However, the glory days seem to be long gone and the team needs a capable manager to bring them back up in the fight for the big titles. Maybe you are the chosen one.


Napoli EA FC 24
Napoli has a lot of talent but lacks in defense.

After a shining outing in the Serie A in 2022/23, everyone expected Napoli to continue their dominance in Italian football with superstars like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen in the frontline. However, their season has completely fallen apart with many suspecting the departure of their star CB, Kim Min Jae, might be the cause.

With Kvicha and Osimhen already being a deadly duo in the club, you can definitely build the team around them and make Napoli a Champions League-winning club in no time with the right transfers and investments in EA FC 24.


The Scottish Premiership is all about two clubs vying for superiority. The league’s central narrative is shaped around Old Firm rivals Celtic and Rangers, although the rivalry has been fairly one-sided in recent years. It’s been more than three seasons since Ibrox saw a title parade, with multiple derby defeats only rubbing salt in the wounds.

Rangers could use a lift and you could be the catalyst. Winning the league in EA FC 24 Career Mode is certainly the primary objective, but a memorable run in Europe could see you go down in the club’s folklore.


Beto in EA FC 24
Give Everton a taste of liquid football in EA FC 24 Career Mode.

Pair struggles on the pitch with troubled administration and you get Everton. The Toffees used to be Premier League royalty but nowadays they run the risk of relegation. To make matters worse, their Merseyside rivals Liverpool have become infinitely more successful.

Your job is to restore happiness to the Goodison faithful and guide the club away from relegation scraps. The team will require a proper rebuild and players such as Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are great pieces to build the squad around.


Sevilla is one of the biggest teams in Spanish football history as they were the all-time record UEL winners, and tasted Champions League knockouts just a few seasons ago. However, they are fighting for relegation in La Liga this season, even with big names such as Sergio Ramos.

Perhaps you can restore the club to its former status, and not only win the Europa League as per their reputation but also the Champions League as well.

Those were our picks for the best teams to rebuild in EA FC 24 Career Mode. For more on the game, check out our other guides:
