You may be wondering who is on the EA Sports FC Standard and Ultimate Edition covers as they have finally been revealed, with the Ultimate Edition opting for a group this year instead of a single or dual cover star.

It is no surprise that EA is taking a different approach with the visual design of EA Sports FC 24, as this is the first year where they have complete control over the license and can theoretically do what they want with the game.

This does result in there being a few players that you might not recognise (whether intentional or not), but we've got you covered with all of the details regarding who is on the EA Sports FC 24 cover for the Ultimate Edition below.

Who is the EA FC 24 Standard Edition cover star?

The reign of Mbappe has come to an end, as the PSG star has been replaced by Manchester City's Erling Haaland.

The big Norwegian forward is set to appear as the sole cover star of the Standard Edition of EASFC 24, for the very first time. This also marks the first time the cover star has been a Manchester City player or a player from Norway. 

In a tweet following the announcement, Haaland said: "Every footballer dreams of this. Proud to be on the cover for the first season of a new era".

That is all we know about the covers for both editions of the game so far. Sometimes the Nintendo Switch version of the game will have a unique cover, so we will be sure to keep this updated as more information is released.
