Career Mode in EA FC 24 now empowers managers with the ability to craft their coaching team, introducing a dynamic of hiring and firing akin to the managerial mechanics in NBA 2K. Here’s an overview of how it operates.

Tactical Vision, a new facet of Manager Career, grants the freedom to adopt a preferred tactical approach, be it possession dominance, long-ball strategy, or a defensively oriented style akin to Sam Allardyce.

To execute your vision and game plan successfully, you won’t just need to find the perfect custom tactics and formation. You will also need to hire, and sometimes fire, coaches from your internal setup to get the most out of the players in the squad.
