FIFA 19: Here’s how to play the game one MONTH before release

This is great news for those itching to try out EA Sports' new game

Gamers will be able to get their hands on FIFA 19 – one month before it launches.

There will be 20 consoles, complete with the demo version of the game, at next month’s eWorld Cup at London’s 02.

FIFA 19 Standard and Champions Editions are available to pre-order from GAME and Amazon

Taking place on August 4, it’ll see the best FIFA players in the world, including the likes of SpencerFC and ChiBoi, battle each other.

“Be one of the first in the world to try FIFA 19 ahead of its official release.”

Tickets are available from the FIFA eWorld Cup website. Standard entry costs £12, while VIP tickets are priced at £35 – a bit pricey if you ask us.
