Source: EA Sports

Can't wait for EA Sports FC 24 (FIFA 24) Career Mode? Then read on, because we'll tell you everything you need to know. The highly acclaimed game mode within the popular soccer game is getting a number of new features this year. With these, EA aims to enhance the depth of the EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode.

At the end of July, the developers unveiled the EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode trailer. This video briefly covers all the new features. Watch the trailer below if you want a quick but clear introduction to Career Mode.

The foundation of Career Mode in EA Sports FC 24 remains unchanged. You start your adventure as a manager or player. You do this with an existing or a new club that you can create yourself. After that, you are responsible for your club's performance, trying to win as many trophies as possible, develop players, and implement winning strategies.

This year, the developers are giving players more freedom when playing the EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode. The new features give you control over how you approach the adventure. Let's take a quick look at the key new features.


We all know the coaching staff can make or break a team's performance. So new this year in EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode are coaches, who can support your managerial career. You can buy coaches on the Coach Market, which shows you their knowledge level, skills in different fields such as attacking, defending, and goalkeeping, and their salary. 

The coaches will have a huge impact on how your team learns new tactics, and how your players develop. They will also give bonuses to players, depending on the coach's skill and the player's position. A midfielder will need a coach whose skills are specifically good at training midfielders. 

Training Plans, Pre-Match Reports & Match Ready Training

Match preparation is one of the most important things for a football player. That is why EA Sports has redesigned training plans to make them more accessible and easier to navigate. These training plans will determine a player's fitness and sharpness during a game. EA recommends you check them frequently to get the full potential of each player on the pitch.

Pre-Match Reports is a new way EA Sports introduces to analyze your opponents and see how they play. This allows managers to tweak tactics that specifically work against, let's say, Liverpool. 

Match Ready Training supplements the Pre-Match Reports. They allow your players to train scenarios that work well against a certain opponent. Does their team like to park the bus? Then you might want to train on specific passes that can break or pass their backline formation. This will increase their performance on the pitch, and you can see the difference after they have trained. 

Spectating as a coach

New this year in EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode is the fact that you can watch the game as a coach on the sidelines. This means you will feel more connected with your players and what's going on on the pitch. Last but not least, you will feel more like a coach than ever before. And who wouldn't want to be the next Guardiola or Ten Hag?

Player Agent

Let's get to the changes in EA Sports FC 24's Player Career. First off, each player now has a Player Agent. You can tell them what team you'd like to play, and they will tell you how to get there. These Player Agents will give you clear objectives you can work on, and eventually what targets you want to hit. In the end, if you make it that far, you'll be able to play for your dream club.

Let's say you are a striker and you want to play for Paris Saint Germain. What would you have to do to get there? That might mean you have to do several successful dribbles, inside-the-box goals, and shots on goal. 

Play Styles redesign

Unlike previous years, EA has made player personalities a key aspect of Player Career in EA Sports FC 24 Career Mode. Each personality tier unlocks a new play style that you will be able to use. Get to the top tier of a personality, and you can unlock a play style plus. Simply meaning, one of your signature moves will become world-class. You will learn to dribble like Messi or shoot like Valverde. 

More celebrations

This might not be the most exciting feature, but we feel like it's worth mentioning. EA has added a lot more so-called dynamic events, from the Ballon d'Or Gala to traveling with a club bus through the city after a won championship. Everything is in order to let the player feel more immersed during EA Sports FC 24's Career Mode.
