Ultimate Team

FC 24 debuted women's players into Ultimate Team for the very first time, and this has been a huge hit, not only with gamers but for the women's teams and players too, as the popularity of the sport is continuing to grow.

Women's football stars have become favourites in Ultimate Team purely because of their in-game ability, and the likes of Kadidiatou Diani, Alex Morgan, and Caroline Graham Hansen have all become even more popular thanks to FC 24.

772 million women's player items have featured in the starting XI of Ultimate Team matches this year, and the game is still relatively new!

On top of that, there have been 373 million Ultimate Team squads with 1+ women's player items in their starting XI so far!

Another fantastic new addition to Ultimate Team this year has been Evolutions, allowing people to upgrade their favourite players by evolving them.

There have been 15.6 million Evolutions started in FC 24 Ultimate Team so far, and there are plenty more EVOs on the horizon.

FC 24 Other Modes

The amount of players involved with FC 24 around the world is astonishing, and since its release, there have been 1.7 billion cross-play matches played!

That's almost a quarter of the world's population!

The most popular match-up in men's football is Paris Saint-Germain vs. Real Madrid, with Real Madrid the most used team in the game.

As for the women's teams, Arsenal vs. Chelsea is the most popular fixture, with Chelsea the most popular women's team.

And this ties up nicely with the two top scorers in FC 24 this year, with PSG's Kylian Mbappe unsurprisingly the men's top goal scorer, and Chelsea's Sam Kerr the highest women's scorer.
