Best FC 24 starter pack and which nation you should choose

Picking the best FC 24 starter pack will ensure solving those early SBCs is a breeze as you look to load up on top players on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch.

What is the best FC 24 starter pack? When loading into FC 24 Ultimate Team for the first time, you’ll be presented with a special player pack choice from the nine top nations in world soccer – Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. The Bronze, Silver, and Gold cards within can be used to either form the foundation of your team, or get started on clearing Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) for top-quality rewards. The majority of players in each pack will come from the chosen nation, so you need to make sure you pick the best FC 24 starter pack to start your journey off right.

While you’re not going to be packing the top players in the FC 24 ratings here, you’ll be getting something arguably more-valuable: a suite of players that can be used as fodder for early FC 24 SBC solutions – be it Around the World, First XI, or Puzzle Master – among other challenges that require your FC 24 Chemistry to be on point. Below, you’ll find our picks for the best EA FC 24 starter pack in this year’s addition to the best soccer game ranks.

The best FC 24 starter pack nation is Brazil. The South American nation is renowned for having plenty of talent in numerous national leagues. This is an especially important factor to consider when it comes to completing advanced SBCs, which typically require players from multiple leagues.

FC 24 best starter pack: choosing a nation

Each year there are two very different schools of thought when it comes to deciding on the best nation. There are those who will opt for nations with players that operate across a number of different leagues, while others prefer packs which contain plenty of players in their own national leagues.

While there are benefits to both, the reality is that, while it doesn’t matter too much in the beginner Foundation SBCs, as soon as you start working away at the Hybrid SBCs that yield greater rewards, you’re going to need to submit players from multiple leagues that have strong Chemistry.

If Brazil isn’t to your liking, then the other best FC 24 starter pack nations are:

  • Argentina
  • France
  • Spain

Similarly to Brazil, Argentina has plenty of strong talent operating across the globe. While the odds of packing a FC 24 wonderkid for your own personal team perhaps isn’t as high as if you looked to the home of the Samba stars, you’re not going to be relying on most of these early game players for long.

Should you wish to try your hand in Europe, then we’d definitely look to either France or Spain. Both nations have plenty of talent operating in neighbouring leagues throughout Europe, while offering two tiers of national play – you won’t have to go as far afield for league-based SBCs. While you could look to England or Germany, which have three FC 24 leagues each, there comes the risk that there won’t be enough cross-pollination outside of those vertical structures, and Chemistry could suffer.

Below, you’ll find that we went against the grain a little and opted for the French starter pack team, which includes three solid Gold pulls. Crystal Palace’s Odsonne Édouard might not be our starting striker for long, but he could certainly stand to benefit from an FC 24 Evolutions upgrade.
