FC 24 Ballon d'Or

Winning the Ballon d'Or is one of the most prestigious awards a player can earn during their career and in FC 24 you can now win the Ballon d'Or in Career Mode.

There are quite a few things to remember when trying to win the award, but the most important thing will be to play well consistently, and you will soon be named the best footballer in the world!

How to Win the Ballon d'Or in FC 24

Winning the Ballon d'Or in FC 24 player Career Mode is not easy, and it could take several seasons for you to achieve this award. It's a long-term goal for any Career Mode player who dreams about starting from the bottom and eventually becoming the best player in the world of football.

To be nominated for the Ballon d'Or, let alone winning it, the player's OVR is crucial and must be in the high 80s and potentially low 90s, so it is unlikely that you will win the award as a Wonderkid.

Once your player has grown to a sufficient rating, you should follow four simple steps to give your player the best chance of being in the Ballon d'Or discussion, and we've highlighted each one below.

Maintain Good Form

Form is a cheat code for targeting the Ballon d'Or, but it must be maintained to a high level in nearly every game of the season. This means you cannot ghost in one game but score two the next; your performances must be consistent throughout.

The form rating must be over 7 at all times, and you must do whatever keeps your rating high every game, such as scoring goals if you are a striker, assisting if you are an attacking midfielder, or making successful tackles if you are defensive-minded.

Winning Individual and Team Awards

Winning individual awards such as Man of the Match, Team of the Week, or Player of the Month can really boost your case to win the Ballon d'Or, helping you stand out from other potential candidates.

Meanwhile, team achievements such as winning the league or UEFA Champions League, for example, can also help your case to win the Ballon d'Or, although it is not essential and doesn't make or break your chances.

Best Positions to Play

You will have a much higher chance of winning the Ballon d'Or if your player is an attacker or a midfielder, as they are more likely to score or assist goals and contribute other performance-related bonuses. It is possible to win this award as a defender or goalkeeper. However, it is much more challenging.

Don't Move Clubs in January

Staying with the same club throughout a season gives you a greater chance of qualifying for the Ballon d'Or. However, moving elsewhere in the January transfer window will significantly affect your chances if you downgrade to a weaker team or league.

Completing a transfer in the summer window before the new season has started is safe and should not impact your Ballon d'Or hopes. Again, only do it if it is a clear upgrade on where your player is already.

Suppose your team wins at least one major trophy during the season. In that case, an open-top bus parade takes place in Career Mode to conclude a successful season, while the awards for Manager of the Year and Player of the Season will be presented during magnificent galas.

Ensure that you and your team consistently deliver exceptional performances throughout the season to give yourself the best chance of winning the awards.

And there we have it, a complete guide on how your Career Mode Player can get their hands on the Ballon d'Or in FC 24. It's not exactly a walk in the park and requires plenty of patience, but as they often say in football, hard work pays off in the end!
