FIFA Ranks Guide: All Ranks In 2024

While a new FIFA game is released pretty much every year, the ranking system stayed more or less the same for years. People often view yearly releases as more updates than fresh games, but how have the FIFA ranks changed in 2024? Last year spelled major changes for the franchise.

In one sense, FIFA is no more. The game doesn’t go by that name anymore, instead being called EA FC 24. Licensing changes aside though, the gameplay and action are still pretty familiar to how the game works. The FIFA Ranks aren’t hugely changed in this iteration, but there’s enough to warrant players getting back up to speed with how it all works. There are still FUT Champions, and prizes for getting involved. So, how does the EA FC 24 Ranks system work for players?

What is EA FC 24 Ranks?

In most games, a Ranked System is present to allow players to compete seriously. The best measure of who the strongest performers are in a game. Getting to the top of ranked is a challenge, and it’s the height of the game outside of FIFA esports. The EA FC 24 Ranks fit this. They’re a system where players can compete against others of a similar skill level to try and grind their way to the top of the player base and win prizes. Although, it runs more in a regular League format than the always-on playlist of most games.

The Ranked system in EA FC 24 is divided between a few divisions and tiers. Players are placed into one of these sections. As they play against others, they’ll gain in rank as they perform better. This should keep everyone matched at their own skill level while they make it into FUT Champions.

The main goal of Ranked for EA FC 24 is the same as FIFA Ranks though. Trying to gain points in Division Rivals to get into FUT Champions. This is how it works.

How to Qualify for FUT Champions?

In order to qualify for the FUT Champions, players will need to earn Champions Qualification Points in Division Rivals. The great thing is that once you earn a certain number of points, you will qualify for the Play-Offs portion of the competitive season automatically. Players are required to gain 2,000 points through the FUT Division Rivals mode, then they’ll qualify for the FUT Champions Play-Offs.

The number of qualification points depends on the division you are in each week of the season in FUT Rivals:

FIFA Gameplay

  • Elite +1000 Points
  • 01 +750 Points
  • 02 +600 Points
  • 03 +500 Points
  • 04 +400 Points
  • 05 +200 Points
  • 06 +150 Points
  • 07 +100 Points
  • 08 +80 Points
  • 09 +60 Points
  • 10 +50 Points

Players also earn points based on the table below:

05+100+40+16
06+75+30+12
07+50+20+8
08+40+16+6
09+30+12+5
10+25+10+4

Champions Play-Offs

This event lasts six weeks, and everyone who gained enough points in the qualifiers can participate in the event. Similar to the Qualifiers, players in the Play-Offs will need to earn enough points in order to qualify for the Champions Finals. It is necessary to get 20 points over 10 matches, and you can earn them like this:

  • Winning a match +4 Points
  • Losing a match +1 Point

Champion Finals

This event takes place on weekends, and everyone with a Finals Qualification Token can participate. This is where the real FIFA ranks list begins. Each weekend, players will play 20 matches, and the outcome by points will put them into each rank. The point awards are the same as in Play-Offs, and the ranks are as follows:

  • Rank 1 – 76 pts
  • Rank 2 – 72 pts
  • Rank 3 – 67 pts
  • Rank 4 – 60 pts
  • Rank 5 – 51 pts
  • Rank 6 – 45 pts
  • Rank 7 – 36 pts
  • Rank 8 – 24 pts
  • Rank 9 – 12 pts
  • Rank 10 – 4 pts
  • Rank 10 – 4 pts

Each rank will reward different items to players. The ranking points required for a rank as well as the rewards are subject to change each season. It’s stayed pretty similar for EA FC 24 Ranks though.
