FC 24 Triple Threat guide with new cards for Toure, Grealish and Ginola

FC 24.

FC 24 Triple Threat appeared to be one of the most creative campaigns in years, although many in the community didn't agree. That's because it focusses on trios of players from one club – but many of the biggest names in EA Sports FC 24, such as Barcelona and Manchester United, missed out. Oof. Below we explain how the November promo worked, and run down the complete FC 24 Triple Threat cards list. 

What is FC 24 Triple Threat?

FC 24 Triple Threat is a brand new promo for this year, which brought the FC 24 Centurions campaign to a close. As the name suggests, it’s all about gathering a trio of players from the same club in your squad for extra chemistry. But these players are both male and female, and from the past and present. For instance, Paris St Germain get new cards for David Ginola (LM, 90), Presnel Kimpembe (CB, 86), and Sakina Karchaoui (LB, 88). This mix of contemporary players and FC 24 Heroes makes for the most fascinating promo since EA moved away from the FIFA series.

Manchester City, Paris St Germain, Liverpool, Lyon, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea are the clubs focussed on in FC 24 Triple Threat Team 1, which landed on Friday, November 10. We’ve covered City and PSG above, and Stamford Bridge die-hards are likely to be equally pleased with their three-headed selection. The Londoners get an upgraded version of Joe Cole (RW, 88), along with Conor Gallagher (CM, 85) and Fran Kirby (CAM, 86). 

Fans of Liverpool, Lyon and Real can see their new items on the complete FC 24 Triple Threat cards list at the foot of this guide. There are no FC 24 Base Icons in this promo, but it’s still one to be celebrated. 

Is there an FC 24 Triple Threat Team 2 leak?

Social media was rife with speculation for FC 24 Triple Threat Team 2, and as ever most of it proved fictional. Indeed, the strongest rumour was that Triple Threat would only last a week, and then be replaced by a new campaign. That's exactly what unfolded. On Friday, November 17 it was replaced with FC 24 FC Pro Live

A couple of clubs seemed inevitable should FC 24 Triple Threat Team 2 have materialised. Manchester United and Barcelona were the most obvious candidates, while many expected Arsenal to receive a trio of new items too. Alas, no deal. Instead the promo was one and done.

Are there any FC 24 Triple Threat free cards?

Funnily enough, yes! Over to EA: "Play Ultimate Team during the Triple Threat week and receive a three-part boost to your squad – a 83+ Players Pack containing a trio of players bolster your Club and celebrate the footballing rule of threes.” 

Here’s what I got from my pack. Not tremendously exciting, but still handy fodder for future Squad Building Challenges:

  • Manuela Zinsberger (GK, Arsenal) - 85
  • Fabinho (CDM, Liverpool) - 84
  • Milan Skriniar (CB, Paris SG) - 84

What’s the deal with FC 24 Triple Threat Tottenham Hotspur?

This was interesting, and complex, and expensive. Tottenham got a specific set of Objectives which enabled you to unlock James Maddison (CAM, 87) and a selection of other treats through gameplay – but to complete them all you also needed to finish both the Ashleigh Neville (RB, 88) and Ledley King (CB, 87) SBCs. Neville cost around 17,000 coins, which is fine. King set you back 381,000 coins, which is absurd. Finish all Tottenham objectives and you scored six different gold packs of varying quality, such as an 80+ 5x rare gold players pack. But the lofty price of that King SBC meant this was only one for hardcore Spurs supporters.
