[After traveling to Amsterdam and Brazil in an attempt to truly understand street football, EA are out to ensure Volta stays true to the streets] FIFA Street we built many years ago and it was fantastical, a bit over the top and probably not authentic - we wanted to root this game in authenticity.

The FIFA family at EA is quite large and there was a ton of experience from people that did work on FIFA Street.

[Who are FIFA 20’s Champions League commentators?] We want our players to feel like they’re truly front and centre in the Champions League experience. We’re bringing unique atmospheres that look and feel like the real thing: overlay packages, match balls, Champions League badges on kits, the archway you walk through, the branding around the stadium.
