FC 24 Winter Wildcards Team 1

As the Christmas period draws closer, EA has released Winter Wildcards as a festive promo for all players, with Team 1 out now!

Content has started to pick up again now that Christmas is almost here, and Winter Wildcards has taken over Ultimate Team.

We will give you everything you need to know about the Winter Wildcards promo, including the release date, concept, and players featured, so let's take a look.

Winter Wildcards release date & how to get

With a few days to go until Christmas, EA has given players an early present, with Winter Wildcards Team 1 out now, releasing on 22 December, at 6 pm GMT.

This promo replaces the Team of the Group Stage promo, and there is tons of players in packs to fulfil your Christmas wish list.

Like with each promo in FC 24 Ultimate Team, EA has dropped Winter Wildcards into packs, whilst setting new objectives and releasing SBCs for people to complete and add players to their Ultimate Team.

This is the first team of the promo, and another is due in a week, so there's a lot to be excited about if you're an Ultimate Team player.

Winter Wildcards players

Every promo sees players look forward to seeing who EA will include in the release, and Winter Wildcards Team 1 has not disappointed.

This promo includes current players as well as Icons, and we have lots of names for you to take a look at!

Winter Wildcards Icons

Like with many promos already in FC 24 Ultimate Team, EA has thrown Icons into the mix, and the names are fantastic!

We will highlight the two highest-rated players Icons and list the rest below.

Pele (Icon - 96 OVR)

Brazilian Icon Pele headlines Winter Wildcards Team 1, and he looks insane, which is no surprise. Pele has been given an incredible 96-rated Winter Wildcard Icon with 94 pace, 95 shooting, 90 passing, and 96 dribbling, making him easily the best player in FC 24 Ultimate Team. Pack Pele and you will be set for the rest of the game, whether he stays in your squad, or is sold.

Marco Van Basten (Icon - 92 OVR)

Dutch Icon Marco Van Basten is the second highest-rated Icon included in the Winter Wildcards Team 1, and he looks like a fantastic player. Van Basten's position has changed to CAM, and he has been given 84 pace, 87 shooting, 90 passing, and 88 dribbling. This Icon card looks like a fantastic alternative for the likes of Ultimate Dynasties Zidane.
