FIFA 19 will be officially announced at 5 pm GMT on Saturday evening, at the annual E3 gaming expo.
The reveal, which will almost certainly feature the game’s first trailer, is part of EA Sports’ press conference at the event, which you can watch live here or watch from the video below
So, what can we expect to see? Read to find out the latest rumours and predictions for FIFA 19.
New Premier League Stadiums
Yes. We all know EA sports have a license agreement with the Premier League. As EA pushes to make the game more realistic than ever, we naturally expect to see all stadiums that will feature in the Premier League properly represented in the game.
These are the home grounds of the three newly-promoted sides, Wolves (Molineux), Cardiff (Cardiff City Stadium) and Fulham (Craven Cottage) as well as Tottenham’s new home.
Full Seria A License
Though the Italian teams were fully licensed and featured in FIFA 17 and FIFA 18, the league itself was referred to as ‘Calcio A’ due to EA’s inability to secure the rights to feature the league in their games.
According to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calcio Finanza), the Italian leagues will be added back to the best-selling football game having been absent from previous releases. No more ‘Calcio A’ then!
Cover Star – Cristiano Ronaldo
While it is yet to be officially confirmed, this art released by EA to tease Saturday’s reveal is pretty much certain to indicate that Cristiano Ronaldo will be on the cover of FIFA for the second season running.

UEFA Champions League, Europa League And Super Cup Licences
The licence for UEFA’s top club competition — and their interminable Euro Vase — effectively complete the set for FIFA which already has Europe’s top leagues, the World Cup, European Championship and almost every other tournament gamers in the game’s largest markets will care about.
