FIFA 22 Adds Alex Scott to Commentary Team
EA SPORTS has announced that Alex Scott MBE, former Arsenal and England right back, will be featured as a Goal Commentator in EA SPORTS FIFA 22.
“This is a big moment for FIFA, for football and women and girls across the world” said Alex Scott. “Representation is crucial and the inclusion of an English-speaking female commentator on FIFA is game-changing. The impact it will have is simply stratospheric. It’s a big moment for me personally and professionally. It’s an honour to be part of the FIFA gaming institution, alongside some of my brilliant presenting colleagues. Whilst I am the first English-speaking female broadcaster to feature in FIFA, I will certainly not be the last. I know this is just the start of stronger female footballing representation from EA SPORTS and the football community as a whole.”
During her playing career, Scott amassed 140 caps for England, represented Team GB at the 2012 Olympic Games and previously featured as a player in FIFA 16 and FIFA 17. Since retiring from football, she has quickly become one of the UK’s most recognised and celebrated football pundits and represents a new generation of football broadcasters who bring their unique perspective to the game.
“Alex is an inspirational voice in the world of football, as she continues to evolve her talent from the pitch to the studio” said David Jackson, VP Brand EA SPORTS FIFA. “Authenticity and immersion are at the core of what makes FIFA special, so we’re thrilled to include Alex’s experience and insight in FIFA 22, as part of our English Language commentary team.”
