There are 115 stadiums in the new EA FC 24 game, released worldwide on 29 September 2023, but there are two high-profile absentees from the impressive list.
Ten new football grounds have been added when compared to the list from FIFA 23, the final game to include ‘FIFA' in the title before the separation of the world football governing body and EA Sports.
These new grounds include Premier League newboys Luton Town's Kenilworth Road, the iconic Glasgow duo of Rangers' Ibrox and Celtic's Celtic Park and the home of Real Madrid Women, Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Included there are some brilliant venues and the Old Firm derby, especially, will be one EA FC 24 players will be looking forward to trying out in the ‘authentic' grounds.
So, what's missing?
Is Camp Nou in EA FC 24?
No. FC Barcelona's iconic Camp Nou stadium is not in EA FC 24, and not just because the Catalan club's world-famous ground is currently undergoing major renovation work.
The 2022/23 La Liga champions will not be back at their home stadium for some time, and are instead playing at the city's Olympic Stadium on the Montjuïc hill.
You can read more about that and the Camp Nou renovation here, but the real reason the Camp Nou is missing from EA FC 24 is because of Barcelona's partnership with Konami Sports, rival of EA Sports.
This will look particularly strange because of La Liga's new partnership with EA Sports, which means all La Liga branding will be a part of the game. Ultra-realism, with the exception of FC Barcelona.
Is Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena in EA FC 24?
No, this is the other high-profile stadium missing, and for the same reason. German champions Bayern Munich also have a deal with Konami and, like Barcelona, extended their partnership only recently, meaning the stunning Allianz Arena is the second most famous stadium to be excluded from the new EA FC 24 game.
When is EA FC 24 released?
EA Sports FC 24, to give the new game its full title, is released on 29 September 2023 and is available on these platforms: Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X.
