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.

EURO CHAMPS - The European champions' home ground looks insane

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

New Arenas

According to FUTZone on Twitter these new stadiums will feature in FIFA 22.

We also are pretty sure that the Brentford Community Stadium will be added to the game after their promotion to the Premier League, but we await confirmation.

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.

HOME RUN - Yankee Stadium's appearance on MLB The Show may block it from coming to FIFA 22

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.

Fans' Poll

Fifplay conducts a poll each year for the stadiums fans want to see in the upcoming FIFA title.

This year it looks to have been sabotaged by fans in Iran and Greece, however!

We run through the most popular choices:

Azadi Stadium, Iran National Team (25%)

Never say never, but we can't see this being added for FIFA 22.

The ground is also home to local clubs Esteghlal and Persepolis.

Imam Reza Stadium, Shahr Khodro FC (9%)

Another ground used by the Iran National Team, the almost 30,000 seater is the home of Persian Gulf Pro League side Shahr Khodro.

Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium, Aris Thessaloniki (8%)

Another unlikely stadium, tenants Aris Thessaloniki have nicknamed the stadium "La Bombonera" - after Boca Juniors' home ground - due to its close relationship with the club.

Camp Nou, FC Barcelona (5%)

It's been in FIFA games before, but with Barca being a partner club of Konami and PES, the chances of the Camp Nou being in FIFA is very slim.

SHUT OUT - The Camp Nou has not been since on an EA title since FIFA 16

The only chance it could be included is if La Liga had a deal with EA much like the Premier League, but even then Barca perhaps has too much influence to make it happen.

Estadio da Luz, SL Benfica (5%)

A stadium that has seemingly disappeared from the FIFA franchise over the years, with Benfica's home ground currently not on any football game.

Porto's Estadio do Dragao is another stadium no longer in the franchise.
