FIFA 20 Demo: Release date, when is FIFA 20 Demo coming out, Demo review, Early Access, Volta Football, Champions League, Clubs, Ultimate Team, Career Mode, pre-order, FUT Web App & more

Which clubs will be on offer in the trial of the new EA Sports game this year?

The wait is over and the FIFA 20 Demo is available, after EA secretly dropped the trial on September 10th.  The FIFA 20 Demo is a chance for players (who didn’t get into the beta) to get some hands on experience with the game – this will include Pro Clubs, Volta and Career Mode updates. The FIFA 20 beta is now closed for those who opted in to receive emails from EA Sports. As we head towards the end of FIFA 19, player numbers drop off which will add pressure onto the development team to ensure the FIFA demo excites.


The teams available in the Champions League kick-off are:
  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Chelsea
  • Liverpool
  • Paris Saint-Germain
  • Real Madrid
  • Tottenham Hotspur

Volta Football

As well as kick-off, there is also a “Preview Experience” of Volta Football. Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior is the star, hitting the streets of Amsterdam after starring against Ajax in the Champions League. Play in a 3v3 match as Vinicius and his crew in a first to four goals wins match.


Even before E3, it was released in The Pitch Notes what the areas of focus were for FIFA 20.
More realistic finishing, improved defending, a passing overhaul, more difficult chained skill moved and goalkeeper movement being reduced were all mentioned, marking a fantastic start for the FIFA 20 cycle. READ MORE: What’s new in FIFA 20’s Gameplay

Early access?

EA are consistent with their release dates, and it looks set to be the final Friday in September which will mark the full release of FIFA 20. This year, that will be September 27, 2019, but we can expect types of early access too. Those who sign up to EA Access get eight hours of gameplay around one week before the game comes out (from 21 September), and those who pre-order the lucrative versions (Ultimate or Champions Edition) of the game can jump the queues and start playing three days before official release. That would be on Tuesday, 24 September 2019. Remember, you can find out more news about FIFA 20 by heading to our absolutely everything about FIFA 20 piece here. 

Volta Football

Volta Football is the big new draw for FIFA 20, and it looks as if the street mode will make its way onto the Demo.

Even if it is just a kick-off exhibition match, fans will be eager to see how the small-sided mode feels on the new game. We can pray for a little taster of Volta Story, but that may have to wait for the full release.

Career Mode

Career Mode gets a revamp this year, but we are unlikely to see it in the Demo. The leaked image suggests some Champions League action, so maybe you will be able to play next year's final in Istanbul. 

Ranging from the customisable managers, to interactive press conferences and player chats, it would be great to see a sneak peek.

Don't expect to get any Ultimate Team or Pro Clubs tasters on the Demo, so you can save your money on FIFA Points until the full release on September 27.
