FIFA 18: What is going on with stadiums this year?

Just what's that seating all about?

Stadiums are one of the big improvements in FIFA 18.

EA Sports crammed them with a load more detail this year – with improved crowds, better lighting and more realistic match atmosphere.

But sometimes, all that extra detail can come at a cost – and some arenas boast some weird quirks.

YouTuber xAcceptiion spotted something that’s not quite right with one of them.

There’s a small crowd in the dugouts of this stadium

On the side of the pitch, next to the players, there are groups of fans in the dug out.

Now, either this is an extraordinary seating arrangement or EA just filled the open spaces with random character models. We think it’s most likely the latter.

But that’s not the only thing.

Near that side of the pitch is confetti, which bears a startling similarity with the confetti that showers across the screen during Ultimate Team pack openings.

Subtle Easter Egg or just a coincidence? We’re not entirely sure.

The bizarre glitch allows you to explore the practice arena

But by far the weirdest stadium glitch takes place in the practice arena. Or outside of it.

That’s because it allows you to explore the pitch and even leave the stadium entirely.

You’re able to run into the stands, through the walls – there are literally no barriers.

However, we doubt EA meant for this to happen as much of the world is poorly rendered and lacks detail.

Come on EA, sort it out.
