After numerous delays, the 2023 season of KONAMI’s popular soccer title, eFootball went now live for mobile devices. Since then, till the 2024 season, we saw a host of other changes in gameplay, controls, and new features being introduced such as Co-op Mode and My League. The concept of Contract Renewal Ticket is one amongst many others that underwent modification in this Season. In this guide, we are going to simplify Contract Renewal Tickets in eFootball 2024, how to acquire them, and some tips to use them efficiently.
Contract Renewal Tickets in eFootball 2024
Contract Renewal Ticket is an in-game asset that allows users to renew the contracts of their Expired Players. Now, when we say expired players, we mean the Legendary/Iconic Player Cards or the cards coming from the previous season, where we coin them as Carryover Players. Expired players are also those who have their 365-days contract expired and cannot be played anymore.
So these type of that you owned in the previous seasons have all been carried forward in eFootball as Expired Cards. To use those Players in matches, you need to spend Contract Renewal Tickets on them. Each Contract Renewal Ticket would increase the Contract of your Expired Cards to 60 days or even in some cases the Match Pass brings the 10-day Contract Ticket as well.
Renewing Contracts using Tickets
Now, let us look at how you can renew player contracts using the Contract Tickets. To do so, you need to click on a player whose contract has expired. Then, you will find the option to either renew using the Contract Renewal Tickets or do Contract Renewals using GP, which you need to select the former. Select what ticket you need and you are good to go.
The new players you purchase or sign have a 365-day contract from the day you sign them. Hence, you do not have to use any Contract Renewal Tickets on them before the period ends. There is no concept of carry-overs this Season.
The Base Player Cards that you owned Last Season have been carried forward as Standard Player Cards this season. Now that we know about Contract Renewal Tickets, let us know the ways to acquire them same.

Best ways to use Contract Renewal Tickets in eFootball 2024
By now, it is clear to us that Contract Renewal Tickets are a scarce in-game resource in eFootball 2024. It would take some serious grind to earn just 1 Contract Renewal Ticket this season. The only hassle-free way to get Contract Tickets would be by purchasing eFootball Points which everyone cannot afford.
However, with the arrival of Contract Renewals using GP, we have less of a headache, but if you are lacking in GP, it is better we have to manage these Contract Tickets efficiently. Here are some tips from our end.
1. Choose your core Legendary players for Contract Renewal
First and foremost, look to give Contract to only those Legendary Players that would make it to your main squad. Say for instance many users in the previous season had built a squad revolving around Iconic and Legend Player Cards that feature in their favorite side (say Barcelona).
So, if you have plans to play with a full squad featuring players from a particular side, look to give Contracts to their Legendary counterparts first. For a full year’s contract, each expired card would require approximately 6x Contract Tickets (60 days x 6=360 days). If you intend to stick to just one squad the whole season, you can give all the Legendary Cards of that squad a Year’s Contract at one go.
2. Rotate your Legendary players while renewing to save contracts
If you have plans to shop around i.e., rotate your players in and out of the squad or play or build more than 1 Squad, then you should initially look to renew the contract of the High Rated Legendary Cards (the likes of Cruyff, Romario, Van Basten, Neymar, Messi, Beckenbauer just to name a few). In that case, give them only a single Contract Ticket (60-day contract) so that you can renew as many players as possible.
3. Don’t spend your Contract Renewal Tickets unnecessarily
Do not spend Contract Renewal Tickets on low-rated Legendary Players or expired players who don’t play for your squad anymore. That is what Resource Management is all about. There is no use in renewing players that won’t feature in your squad.
4. Release your duplicate Legendary players
If you have duplicate Legendary Cards, do not give every card a Contract Renewal Ticket. When we say duplicate, all versions of the Iniesta Card or the Messi card have been clubbed together as a single version. So, if you have different versions of the same Player Card, it is most likely that they have been clubbed to a single version.
So, it is of no use giving Contracts to different versions of the same card as they now possess the same stats and abilities. We would advise you to keep one Legend Version and Iconic Moment Version of a particular Player card (the gold and pink background and the single OVR gap are the only differentiators) and release all the duplicate cards. The process can earn you Level Training Programs that can be used to level up your main squad players.
