There are plenty of amazing grounds that don’t feature on EA’s title, but which might be added?
More stadiums are added each year on FIFA, with FIFA 21 set to be no different.
With licensing issues the biggest hurdle to overcome, here are some of the grounds we think could appear on the new game and how they could look with Next Gen.
EA Play has given us a look at FIFA 21 for the very first time.
In the trailer released during the EA Play event, we got glimpses of Anfield and Parc des Princes and the graphics look amazing!
Alongside Anfield and Parc des Princes, it also looked like the Santiago Bernabeu, Signal Iduna Park and the Etihad will also be on FIFA 21 once more.
With only short cuts to these grounds this is unconfirmed, however it does look likely at this stage.
Vodafone Arena – Besiktas
Besiktas’ stadium is surrounded by perhaps one of the most picturesque settings in world football – the waterfront stadium would look incredible on FIFA 21.
Besiktas were founded almost 120 years ago and have won the Turkish Super League 15 times! Surely they’re deserving of having their incredible stadium feature next year.
Stadio San Paolo – Napoli
Home to one of the most hostile atmospheres in the world, it’s never easy for an opposition team to play against Napoli at home.
EA has had trouble agreeing licensing rights with the Serie A in past years – if they were to agree terms with Italy, the Stadio San Paolo has to be one of the first new stadiums on FIFA 21’s list.
Giorgios Karaiskakis Stadium – Olympiacos
Greek side Olympiacos are more than worthy of having their stadium recreated in FIFA 21.
They have featured in the Champions League for years and have won the Greek domestic league trophy a record 44 times – who better to bring the famous Greek atmosphere to FIFA 21 than the Piraeus-based team.
Estadio do Dragao – Porto
Portuguese side Porto are a team steeped in history – with 28 Primeira Liga trophies under their belt, it’s fair to say they are one of the best sides in the country.
Their stadium, Estadio do Dragao, not only has a striking aesthetic but an amazing atmosphere – it would make a fine addition to FIFA 21.
Elland Road – Leeds United
Okay, so we know that Elland Road wasn’t in FIFA 20 because Leeds failed to secure promotion. However, it looks like it may finally be Leeds’ year as they currently sit fairly comfortably in an automatic promotion spot.
If Leeds do make it to the Premier League, Elland Road will almost definitely feature in FIFA 21. The stadium has been home to Leeds since the club’s formation in 1919, so it would make a superb addition to the game.
