EA Sports FC 24 is coming out on September 29, or if you pre-order the Ultimate Edition, you can play it on September 22. The game developer, Electronic Arts, has some exciting things planned.
One big thing fans are eager to know about is the new legendary players coming to EA Sports FC 24’s Ultimate Team mode. These players are some of the very best you can get in the game’s card-collecting mode, so people are really excited about them.
There’s a rumor going around that all eight of these new legendary players have been leaked before EA’s official announcement. A person on Twitter named Fut Sheriff, who’s known for sharing inside info about EA Sports FC/FIFA games, has shared some new information.
Hamm is the female version of R9

While we should be a bit cautious, Sheriff is usually right about this information. Also, it’s the first time women’s Icons will be in EA Sports FC 24, and they’re the biggest part of the new Icons this year. Let’s see who we can expect to see.
EA Sports FC 24 New Icons
As we said before, in the latest EA Sports FC 24 game, there are more famous female players than male players. This makes sense because it’s the first time you can have both men and women on one team.
Some of these female players became really popular during the 1999 and 2003 Women’s World Cups when soccer was becoming more popular.
The male players who are now Icons in the game include some who just retired and some who were legends in soccer’s past. Here’s a list of all the new Icons that were revealed for EA Sports FC 24:
- Hamm (93 OVR)
- Prinz (92 OVR)
- Charlton (92 OVR)
- Zico (91 OVR)
- Sawa (91 OVR)
- Abily (90 OVR)
- Smith (89 OVR)
- Ribéry (88 OVR)
This year, most of the new players are good at attacking in the game. But don’t worry, there are also some strong defenders among the new heroes. These are just some early rumors, but it’s unlikely that they’ll change. Sheriff has been right about most of EA Sports FC 24’s announcements this year, so they’ll probably be right about this one too.
EA FC 24 Release Date
EA FC 24 is coming out on September 29th, but if you’re super excited and can’t wait, there are two ways to play it a week earlier. You can either buy the fanciest version called the Ultimate Edition or if you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you get EA Play for free.
Starting on September 22nd, if you’re an EA Play member, you can try out EA FC 24 for 10 hours before everyone else gets to play it.
