FIFA Ambassadors

The Next Gen consoles have provided us with plenty of excitement already, and we expect FIFA 22 to be epic!

Will Kylian Mbappe remain the cover star on the next game, or will we see a new face of FIFA?

Release Date

Obviously, FIFA 22 is still some way off, so any release date at the moment is guess work.

Judging by previous years, we are expecting the release date for the game to be somewhere between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October.

FIFA 21 Cover Star

As we know, PSG star Kylian Mbappe fronted up all three editions of FIFA 21.

A David Beckham edition has also been available, but will we see any new faces on the cover of FIFA 22.

We expect Mbappe to stay as the cover star for the foreseeable future as one of the world’s brightest talents.

If EA do opt for someone else, it is likely to come from one of their current FIFA Ambassadors.

FIFA Ambassadors

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold could be one of the next in line if EA decide to use more than one cover star for FIFA 22.

TAA is one of the top young players in the world and a crucial player in Jurgen Klopp’s successful side.

Erling Haaland

The sky is the limit for Norway and Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

EA has already signed Haaland as an ambassador, so we could definitely see the forward on the cover of FIFA at some point in his career!

Joao Felix

Another of EA’s prodigies, Joao Felix is starting to show why Atletico Madrid splashed over £100 million to bring him to the Spanish capital.

Like Haaland, Felix has a bright future ahead of him and he is certainly another player in contention for FIFA 22 cover star.

Phil Foden

One of the ‘FIFA Next’ crowd, Manchester City’s Phil Foden looks a class above every time he steps on the pitch.

EA have surprised us before with young guns on their cover, but we think FIFA 22 may come a little early for Foden.

Mason Mount

Chelsea wonderkid Mason Mount is another young English player we could see on the front of FIFA in the near future.

The Blues are going through a turbulent season, but Mount has been a consistent performer and is already a FIFA Next star.
