The Euro 2024 update is live in EA FC 24, but fans are wondering if it includes a standalone Ultimate Team mode like in previous years. So, here’s everything you need to know about Euro 2024 in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team.

Euro 2024 has officially taken over EA FC 24, kicking off the Festival of Football that’s set to last much of the summer. The update lets players recreate the tournament and complete challenges across all modes, but is there a standalone Ultimate Team mode like there has been for the World Cup in the past?

Here’s everything you need to know about whether there’s a Euro 2024 mode in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team.

Is there a Euro 2024 Ultimate Team mode in EA FC 24?

No, there is no standalone Euro 2024 mode for EA FC 24 Ultimate Team. The Festival of Football update did bring a special mode featuring the fully licensed tournament, but this only offers Tournament mode, Lead Your Nation, Kick-Off, and Online Friendlies.

Instead, the devs have decided to integrate UEFA Euro 2024 into the existing Ultimate Team mode, in the form of new cards and promos. These are Path to Glory and Greats of the Game cards that upgrade over time, as well as the Copa America items.

There are also plenty of themed rewards to earn from the Festival of Football Season Progress, which are unlocked by completing challenges and earning XP.

Every time an international tournament rolls around, players hope that it will bring a standalone mode to Ultimate Team. This all stems from the 2014 World Cup mode, which was a separate experience where fans could build new teams using the players competing in the tournament. and chemistry links were based on nationality and continent.

A similar mode was released for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but in the years since the devs have abandoned the idea, deciding instead to add themed content into the main mode and keep the player base together.

When EA Sports secured the UEFA license ahead of FIFA 19, fans hoped that future European Championships would revive the standalone mode, but this won’t be the case for Euro 2024
