EA FC 24 is nearly here and with it comes the first Ultimate Team promo of the year with the Nike Mad Ready Campaign. Every year, there are plenty of fresh promos in EA FC, but usually, the game begins with the Ones to Watch campaign, which looks like it won’t be returning this year. 

Instead, the game will be kicking off with the Nike Mad Ready cards, so that you are ready for when the game fully releases. EA FC 24 also has the Evolution cards in the game this year too, to get things started. 

Here is all you need to know about the Nike Mad Ready promo for EA Sports FC 24.

What is the EA FC 24 Nike Mad Ready promo?

This promo will shine the spotlight on Nike athletes in the game, offering players a series of objectives to complete using Mad Ready players so you have the best possible start to this year's Ultimate Team. According to EA, these objectives are ‘tailor-made’ to get you ready for release.

Alongside the players, there will also be cosmetic items for you to earn too including a limited-release kit seen above. The players themselves are not boosted, they just have a different appearance on the card.

Here are all five confirmed players for the EA FC 24 Nike Mad Ready promo:

Name Club Nationality  Position
Enzo Fernandez  Chelsea Argentina CM
Federico Chiesa  Juventus Italy LM
Sam Kerr Chelsea Australia ST
Alexia Putellas Barcelona Spain CM
Virgil van Dijk Liverpool Netherlands CB

While these cards unfortunately won't receive any stat boosts, they are still some of the strongest players in the entire game and will thus be extremely desirable. Let's hope that you manage to pick up at least one while they are still in packs.

The Nike Mad Ready promo will only last for seven days, by the time the game fully releases the promo will have expired, making way for a new one. It means that the Nike Mad Ready promo will only be available to early access players who ordered the Ultimate Edition or EA Play members. 

For now, that is all we know about the Nike Mad Ready promo arriving in EA FC 24. We have also covered all of the new Icons arriving this year, as well as how chemistry works with the introduction of women’s players to the game. For everything else, check out our EA FC 24 homepage
