To give yourself the best shot, you’re going need to have an EA account – then, head to email settings and check the box that says you want to receive promotional materials.

If you’re lucky enough to receive an invite, you’ll be able to play an early version of the game.

It’s worth mentioning that the screen will feature a watermark – complete with your gamer tag. This is to stop you from taking screen shots or streaming the game – both of which will result in account ban.

For those who can’t get their hands on the closed beta then you’ll have to wait for the demo, which drops a few weeks later.

If past years are anything to go by, the FIFA 18 demo will arrive on September 15 – two weeks before launch.

The FIFA 17 demo dropped on September 13, with the full game arriving on September 27.

FIFA 16 followed the same pattern, with the demo arriving on September 8 and the game released on the 22nd.
