FIFA 20: New Commentators confirmed, Career Mode, Volta Announcers, Release Date & More

In response to PES 2020's growing licenses, EA have added new teams to call the shots.


FIFA 20 is edging closer to release, and it’s about this time we can expect EA Sports to push out as many announcements to keep the momentum and the hype going.

Over the past couple of weeks, news has finally dropped regarding the biggest changes we have seen in FIFA Career Mode in over a decade, the Cover Stars have been revealed, Volta News and fresh updates to Ultimate Team. In addition to all of this, the FIFA 20 Beta has dropped, with new features being leaked. 

One announcement that flew under the radar was the reveal of the new commentators that will be in FIFA 20. 

Who Are They? 

Jeroen Grueter and Sierd de Vos will be the new commentators in the game FIFA 20 for the Dutch language.

The commentators have spoken more than a million words for the game in a year’s time, according to developer EA in a press release. The recording time took almost 700 hours in total.

Brazilian fans will be happy to hear that Gustavo Villani is arrving to the franchise this year. Like the rest of us with Martin Tyler & Alan Smith, Brazil have had Tiago Leifert and Caio Ribeiro commentating for the past few years. 

Just like The Journey, some of the commentators are getting the boot for FIFA 20
Gustavo has been the main man at Brazil’s equivalent of Sky Sports and is now heading into FIFA 20. 

We suspect that as this news has dropped for these different regions, and there is the possibility that as English speakers we will no longer be hearing just Tyler & Smith. 

There may be some variance heading to FIFA 20 for us English folk, with Derek Rae & Lee Dixon arriving last year for the European coverage for the Champions League & Europa League. 

Tyler & Smith are regulars on Sky Sports, but with the younger generation becoming more familiar with Gary Neville & Jamie Carragher, maybe we will see one of these ex-pros arrive this year. 

Volta Announcers

EA also announced that ‘Troopz’ of AFTV on YouTube will be an announcer for the London City cage. In the Volta announcement trailer, Troopz can be heard shouting ‘Oh my days fam’ as a reaction to a skill.

EA had a similar style of reaction from an MC back in the FIFA Street series. 

With many of the arenas being set across the globe, expect different announcers that represent the cultural environment in which the game is set.

Release Date

EA Sports are very consistent with their release dates, and once again the final Friday in September will mark the full release of FIFA 20. This year, that will be Friday, 27 September 2019, but we can expect types of early access too.
