With the exciting news of Kobe Bryant gracing the cover of NBA 2K24, we now move to the possible cover star for the upcoming EA Sports FC 24. Ahead of a massive week for EA Sports, rumors have been swirling around the internet like crazy. The latest one is that Manchester City striker Erling Haaland will be the first cover star for EA Sports FC.

Of course, this rumor comes from the popular FIFA news leaker, FUTZone.
Erling Haaland is one of the most entertaining, explosive, and dominant strikers in the Premier League. In his first season for Manchester City, he scored 52 goals in 52 matches. Yes, read that again. Those are FIFA 23 career mode numbers.
Nevertheless, Haaland taking over the cover from Kylian Mbappé would feel like it’s officially moving away from the FIFA series. However, with EA’s departure from the FIFA series should come a new look and a new face of the franchise.
