FC 24 Around the World solution
The best way to solve the FC 24 Around the World SBC is to pick two affordable leagues with diverse nationalities, players rated over 80, and players than can play in the LWB and RWB positions – the two hardest ones to fill.
As we’re in the early stages of FC 24, it’s tricky to give an absolute answer on the cheapest solution to this puzzle, but this general advice will still help you keep the cost down and potentially solve it using players you already have in your club.
In our Around the World SBC solution, we used players from La Liga and the NWSL. These leagues are particularly good to use, as there are a few affordable options for both the LWB and RWB slots that this SBC’s 5-2-1-2 formation throws at you. Remember that this year players can slot into alternate positions without the need of a position modifier card, so even if you see a card with LB as its main position, make sure to check that it isn’t also compatible as an LWB, for example.
As you can see from our solution, you essentially need five players from one of the leagues and six players from the other, all in a compatible position and able to give chemistry to each other. You don’t have to worry about clubs – if every player was from a different club, you’d still have enough chemistry to get past the threshold for this challenge. You do have to make sure you’ve got a diverse spread of nations, though. Note that Around the World needs exactly ten nationalities, so two players are OK to share the same nationality (in this instance, our LWB and RWB are both from the USA).
One other thing that could catch you out is the overall team rating requirement of 81. Make sure you’re using players in the 80-83 overall rating ballpark. We highly recommend doing what we’ve done here and make a concept squad first to make sure the players you want to use add up to the right overall team rating – there’s nothing worse than buying players for an SBC, only to find your one rating under the requirement.
Here are some other leagues that you should look at using to complete Around the World:
- La Liga
- Serie A
- Premier League
