The best FC 24 starter teams for career

When picking an FC 24 starter team for career mode, budget is always going to be one of the most important factors. Without a solid budget, you’re going to struggle to bring in new players without sacrificing what you already have, so we often pick a team with plenty of dollars to spare for our first season, at least. In the table below, you can find some of our suggestions for the best FC 24 starter teams from some of the most popular leagues in the world.

League Team
Premier League Manchester City, Chelsea, West Ham, Wolverhampton Wanderers

The best FC 24 starter teams for Ultimate Team

Unlike in career mode, Ultimate Team provides you with a list of random players from teams and leagues all over the world rather than a squad from real life. Because of this, there isn’t really a best FC 24 starter team for the online-heavy game mode, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have advice for putting together an early build competent enough to use in matches.

Our best advice at the start of the season is to complete as many in-game ultimate team challenges as possible to earn some resources for buying players. Those that the game gives you in the FC 24 starter team often leave a lot to be desired in terms of skills, so it’s a good idea to prepare for buying some better strikers, defenders, and midfielders when you have the cash to do so.
