What is FC Pro Draft?
The FC Pro Draft is a new addition to competitions in EA SPORTS FC 24. For the first time, squad building will be a core aspect of the esport with players making hard decisions about their squad similar to what a player experiences at home.
With FC Pro Draft, competitors will be set a budget in coins that they must adhere to. For this weekend’s FC Pro Open Global Qualifier, the budget will be set at 8,000,000 coins. Competitors will need to build a full squad – their starting XI and subs – that stays within this budget and submit it before the deadline.
The cost of each player item will be set based on the in-game transfer market price of the item. The prices will be locked at a certain time each week and players will use those to build their squads.
In addition to the coin budget, competitors may also be set additional requirements they must meet with their squad. This can include incorporating player items from events in Ultimate Team such as Trailblazers or Centurions as well as requirements that highlight players from specific leagues and nations.
Over the course of FC Pro 24, we’ll see a variety of Draft requirements that will really allow competitors to flex their squad building muscles.
