Football Manager 2024, the latest edition of the beloved series, will hit shelves on November 6. The game’s early access period provided fans with a glimpse of what’s in store, including a peek at ratings. So here are the top 50 players in Football Manager 2024 based on their current ability ratings.

Sports Interactive’s revered simulation series returns with Football Manager 2024. Targeted towards enthusiasts, the game places players in the driving seat of any club of their choosing. They can manage everyday operations, handle player development and recruitment, and of course, lead their side to glory.

At the heart of Football Manager 24 is its expansive database. The game manages to capture player attributes with excellent detail and rates them with a preset number named Current Ability or CA. Ranging from 1-200, the rating provides managers with a firm idea of the player’s quality. To view a player’s CA in the game, managers need to use an official editor or a third-party skin.

With this in mind, here are the top 50 players in Football Manager 2024 based on their current ability ratings.
