FIFA 22 Trailer

Watch the official FIFA 22 trailer below.

The reveal trailer has got fans hyped for the upcoming release, featuring cover star Kylian Mbappe, along with top talents Trent Alexander-Arnold and Christian Pulisic.

Gameday Atmosphere

EA has revealed new Gameday Atmosphere for Madden 22, so will we see something similar in FIFA 22?

Connect you to your NFL fandom from the sidelines to the seats in ways that enhance and impact every game with Gameday Atmosphere.
New environments and presentation elements let you feel the impact of big, spontaneous moments that can change the course of a game based on the unique atmospheres of each NFL stadium.
Plus, new on-field reactions and player personas add intensity to the drama during pressure moments.

This looks like extra emotion will feature in the game, bringing with it passion and a unique playing experience in each match.

Two stadiums shown off

So far we have seen two stadiums in the FIFA 22 reveals.

Chelsea's Stamford Bridge and Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu have been seen and both look epic in the new game.

The next-gen graphics are insane too, so we can't wait to see these packed out with fans.

Portuguese paradise

After the unveiling of the Estadio da Luz, home of Benfica, the Estadio do Dragao, home of Porto, will also be in FIFA 22.

Their arch-rivals Porto will also have their home ground in the game, with the Estadio do Dragao coming exclusively to FIFA 22.

Yankee Stadium, New York City

Wait - that's a baseball stadium, right?

Yes, but it's also the home of New York City FC.

Whether EA could get the rights for the stadium, given it is owned by the New York Yankees, remains to be seen - with it likely to be tied to MLB The Show 21.

Either way, it does highlight a serious shortage of MLS stadiums in the FIFA franchise, despite a strong relationship with the league.

Only LA Galaxy (StubHub Arena), Vancouver Whitecaps (BC Place Stadium), Atlanta United (Mercedes-Benz Stadium), Portland Timbers (Providence Park) Seattle Sounders (CenturyLink Field), New York Red Bulls (Red Bull Arena) have their own stadiums in the game.

That leaves 20 clubs without stadiums, something that needs addressing for FIFA 22.

Given David Beckham's new relationship with EA, his Inter Miami side and their stadium (Inter Miami CF Stadium) is perhaps one of the more likely to be included.
