With the release of FIFA 22 around the corner, EA, the publisher of the game is moving towards a more diverse presentation for the popular title with BBC Sport and Sky Sports pundit Alex Scott set to appear in the title’s next release as a pitch-side reporter.
Announcing the news on Twitter, the ecstatic Alex, who will become the first English-speaking female FIFA video game commentator when FIFA 22 releases this fall said this was a big moment for FIFA, for football and women and girls across the world.
“It’s also a big moment for me personally and professionally.” She wrote.
Whilst I am the first English-speaking female broadcaster to feature in FIFA, I will certainly not be the last.
