It’s time to get ready… MADReady for EA FC 24
The Nike MadReady promo is the first of its kind in EA FC 24. For the first time in franchise history, EA are releasing promotional cards before the full release of the game. It's a promo that is exclusive to the Early Access of the game.
What is the Nike MadReady promo?
The Nike MadReady promo in EA FC is the first ever promo in an EA Sports game that is exclusive to prerelease Early Access.
The Nike MadReady promo will feature five players who have been picked out by EA. These players are getting aesthetic-only promo cards, meaning that they have no stat increases from their base versions.
These cards will feature the first animated background card design in EA Sports soccer game history, but the changes on the cards will end with the design and player photo.
What players will be available?
Only five players will be available in the Nike MadReady promo at the start of EA FC 24. Juventus winger Federico Chiesa will be by far the most sought after. As the name of the promo suggests, only Nike-sponsored athletes will be part of the promo.
The rumored full list of players is*:
- Federico Chiesa
- Niklas Sule
- Geoffrey Kondogbia
- Enzo Fernandez
Out of all five of the players, Marseille midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia is the most disappointing. Players will be hoping that these are allowed to be passed though the new Evolutions system in EA FC 24 to make them viable for use.
*This list is unconfirmed, and is based on reliable leaks.
How to get promo players
Players included in this first promo of EA FC 24 will only be available through objectives in the first week of the game.
This means that they will not be available in packs from the store and players will instead have to complete challenges to get their hands on them. Those challenges will not be available until the game releases.
When is the Nike MadReady promo?
The Nike MadReady EA FC promo will begin on the day of Early Access release of the game. It will run from September 22-29, 2023. It is the first promo in EA soccer game history that will only be available before the full release of the game. The promo will likely release at 1 p.m. EDT (6 p.m. BST).
The promo will end with the full release of EA FC 24 on September 29, 2023. This makes it completely exclusive to the pre-game release.
