The UCL Hero Pack was one of the biggest draws of preordering EA FC 24, and we've got all of the players you can get right here alongside the time that it drops in-game.

Standard Heroes are some of the best players in the game, giving you the opportunity to boost the chemistry of many players in your squad with a leading star. UCL Heroes up the ante even more with stat boosts and a new design - but not every card has had the benefit of an upgrade.

What time does the UCL Hero Pack drop?

Players who preordered the Ultimate Edition of EA FC 24 before August 22, 2023, will see the UCL Hero Pack added to their Ultimate Team club from 10:59 PM GMT on November 27, 2023. This has been confirmed by the official EA Help webpage, so set your alarms and make sure to open it as soon as it arrives!

As is the case with most preorder packs or bonuses, this is a rough guideline that means your pack could arrive shortly after 10:59 PM if you don't get it on the dot. You might need to reload Ultimate Team or restart the game entirely for it to track, and it might not appear until you play the game as opposed to the Web App or Companion App.

Here are all of the players that you can get from the preorder UCL Hero Pack, each with bonus stats from their original versions:

  • Wesley Sneijder (Serie A)
  • Gianluca Vialli (Serie A)
  • Nadine Keßler (Frauen-Bundesliga)
  • Bixente Lizarazu (Bundesliga)
  • Carlos Tévez (Premier League)
  • Sonia Bompastor (D1 Arkema)
  • Paulo Futre (Liga Portugal)
  • Vincent Kompany (Premier League)
  • Jari Litmanen (Eredivisie)
  • Steve McManaman (LaLiga)
  • Rui Costa (Serie A)
  • Dimitar Berbatov (Bundesliga)
  • Ludovic Giuly (LaLiga)
  • Tomáš Rosický (Bundesliga)
  • Alex Scott (NWSL)
  • Nwankwo Kanu (Eredivisie)
  • Ramires (Premier League)
  • John Arne Riise (Premier League)
  • DaMarcus Beasley (Eredivisie)

New cards like Vialli and Keßler look very exciting to use, but I think that Ramires, Tevez, and Bompastor are the three best options - with the former two's linkability reigning supreme. You'd be set with pretty much any of the options though, but let's hope that you don't end up with Beasley or Kanu.
