The Euro 2024 Path to Glory is on and we may finally see a 99 OVR card in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team

It will take until after the regular portion of the season is done and dusted, but we’re finally set to see a 99 OVR player in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team thanks to the launch of new dynamic Path to Glory items for Euro 2024 and Copa America.

Team of the Season failed to deliver and was an overall disappointing piece of content, considering its status as the quintessential endgame Ultimate Team promo event. Not a single player over 97 OVR was suspicious at the time, but it’s now clear that EA was setting the stage for its Euro 2024 content to be the actual Thanos of EA FC 24 Ultimate Team.

Enter Path to Glory and Greats of the Game, a massive double release that kicks off the Festival of Football in EA FC 24 that will continue throughout June and July. The former takes the bulk of the space with a total of 30 players, 20 from Euro 2024 and 10 from Copa America. Greats of the Game are represented by 12 legends of European and American soccer divided into eight Icons and four Heroes.

While Path to Glory players are capped out at 96 OVR, their dynamic nature opens the door wide open for one or more players to earn upgrades all the way up to 99 OVR. The way the upgrade path is laid out, any of the seven 96-rated players whose nation wins either Euro 2024 or Copa America is guaranteed to end up with a 99 OVR card by the end of the event.

Greats of the Game come with higher starting ratings, with Rivaldo being the best at a 97 OVR. But their much more limited upgrade path means there will be no 99 OVR Icon or Hero in EA FC 24 unless there’s another major release during the summer.
