Since EA Access** and Origin Access** launch last week, millions of players around the world have already started to build their dream squads and gone head-to-head on the pitch, with more than 57 million total matches played, 3.2 million squads created, and over 52 million goals scored in the game.

“Each year we look to add more ways for our players to engage, from mode innovations to gameplay mechanics to delivering the most authentic experience to date,” said Aaron McHardy, Executive Producer for EA SPORTS FIFA. “This year, we’ve also introduced VOLTA FOOTBALL that adds a completely new dimension to the game and brings FIFA 20 back to the streets and futsal courts where a lot of football players from all over the world started out. It’s an experience our players have asked us to bring back, which we’re excited to deliver as we continue to build the world’s game.”
