FIFA20: Launch Party

Ahead of the latest instalment in the FIFA game series dropping, EA SPORTS celebrated by hosting a mad launch party for FIFA20. 

The event brought together ballers from all walks of life, from ex-players like Ian Wright and current professionals including Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jadon Sancho, to footballing influencers like The F2 Freestylers.

With pop-ups set up for just about everything imaginable – like a barbers, 5-a-side pitch and, of course, gaming stations – the atmosphere was buzzing.  

Fans from all over the world to experience their first taste of FIFA 20.

One of the main focuses of the day was around FIFA’s new mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL: a street football concept which pays homage to the old FIFA Street series in a modern twist.

In celebration of VOLTA FOOTBALL, EA held an indoor, international tournament to showcase players’ mad skills in a street football setting.

Ballers take to the pitch in front of an audience to show off their skills.
COPA90’s very own Timbsy took part for London FC, alongside regular presenter, Chelcee Grimes.

The tournament was hosted by BBC presenter, Craig Mitch, and supported by celebrity guests. After some epic balling from all 15 international teams, the Rio Squad came out on top, picking up the trophy from Brazilian ICON Kaká.

FIFA20 is available to buy now, and if the World Premiere is anything to go by, it promises to be another cracker.
