If you and your club members want to make it to the Elite Division in EA FC 24 Pro Clubs, you will undoubtedly want the best formation and tactics.

Whether you play with an “Any” or you like to let the AI do the job, we have the best set up for you to use to climb the ranks. Using an “Any” means the player in this position will control all AI players and their Pro.

So, let’s dive in and discuss the best formation and custom tactics you will want to use in EA FC 24 Pro Clubs.

Best Formation in EA FC 24 Pro Clubs

When it comes to choosing the best formation for your EA FC 24 Pro Clubs team, you have two standout options:

  1. 5-2-1-2 (Recommended for AI Defending): If your team relies on AI-controlled defenders, the 5-2-1-2 formation is your best bet. Its five-person defensive line provides excellent protection, making it challenging for your opponents to score.
  2. 4-1-2-1-2 (2) (Ideal for “Any” Players): If your team prefers manual control over every player, the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation is the way to go. It excels in short passing and creating goal-scoring opportunities.

Choosing the correct formation is crucial for success in EA FC 24 Pro Clubs, so consider your team’s playing style when deciding.

The most crucial tactic here is changing Chance Creation to Possession. Using this setting, the AI players are less likely to do long passes, which results in your team losing the ball.

Instead, they will look for the more accessible and shorter passes, allowing you to maintain the ball to create attacks successfully.

Instructions

Here are the best instructions to set in the 5-2-1-2 formation:

PositionInstruction
GK• Comes for Crosses
Sweeper Keeper
LWB• Stay Back While Attacking
CBs• Default
RWB• Stay Back While Attacking
CMs• Stay Back While Attacking

You do not need to set instructions for any position where you will have someone controlling their Pro.

4-1-2-1-2 (2)

If you use this formation, we recommend having a player as the “Any.” This gamer will control all the AI players in your team.

We suggest having a real player at each ST position with the “Any” as one, a player at CAM, and, if possible, at CDM. However, note that if you only have three players, you can play without the CDM.

With a setup like this, you will have a much easier time defending and creating opportunities to score goals.

Custom Tactics

  • Defence
    • Defensive Style: Balanced
    • Team Width: 45
    • Depth: 40
  • Offence
    • Build-Up Play: Balanced
    • Chance Creation: Possession
    • Width: 55
    • Players in box: 5
    • Corners: 1
    • Free Kicks: 1

Having Possession set as your Chance Creation will mean the AI players will move closer to you when you have the ball. This makes it easier to make passes.
