FC 24 potential is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a term to describe how much a player can develop and get better. Just like in FIFA before it, FC 24 has different levels of potential for different players – but knowing the ones to choose is going to be difficult before the football game launches.

So, we’ve gone out in search of the player’s with the highest possible potential, as well as those who can grow just a little to be the best in the game. We’ve also explained FC 24 points and taken a stab at EA FC ratings, too.

What is FC 24 potential?

Potential is a term to describe how much a player can develop in FC 24’s career mode. For example, a player like Barcelona’s Gavi has a rating of 83 in EA FC 24, with a potential of 90. A player’s potential is the rating they can reach with the right development and training. Young players with high potential are often described as ‘wonderkids’, and we’ve listed some of the best in the game in our FC 24 wonderkids guide.

Despite the change of name, potential is much as it was in FIFA 23 in EA FC 24, with the ability to turn great players, or those going under the radar, into international superstars. However, it is worth noting, players can outperform their potential, especially if they’re in a solid run of form, so it’s always worth keeping an eye on the stats of your players to see how much they improve through a season.

Here we’ve listed the EA FC 24 players with the highest potential. All these players have a potential growth in their rating by at least 19 points – Paul Wanner, for example, can develop from a 63-rated player into an 86 overall. As they start from a position of lower base stats compared to some of the better-known wonderkids, it’s always worth signing a couple and training them up to perform on par with the elite.
