Footballers from around the globe are slowly making their way back to training this week which can only mean one thing. The new season, and the new version of FIFA 20 is closer than ever. Whether you're going to tiki-taka your way to glory with Dortmund, long ball your way out of the relegation zone with Newcastle or hit and hope with Arsenal - you'll be able to get your practice in soon with the new FIFA 20 demo. Here's everything we know so far:
When does the FIFA 20 demo come out?
Based on previous release dates, there should be a demo two weeks before full release - meaning 12th September 2019 is the most likely date that you can play FIFA 20 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.

When will FIFA 20 pre-order start?
Early access members - i.e those prepared to pay for it - will be able to get hold of the game on September 24th.
Will FIFA 20 have Career Mode and Ultimate Team?
Unfortunately nothing new was shown about Career Mode and Ultimate Team at E3. They're definitely still a thing though. We're hoping to get some big improvements but we'll have to wait and see.
What teams will you be able to use in the demo?
Usually, the demo only lets you use a select few teams. At the moment, EA haven't confirmed which teams will be usable. The latest trailer features Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munch and Juventus, so that could be a sign that those are the ones to feature.
Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal, have licensing deals with their rivals, Pro Evolution Soccer so we can assume they won't feature.
What else can we expect?
There's a brand new mode called 'VOLTA'. EA describe it as: "a brand-new style of gameplay grounded in football realism which immerses players in the flow of the street with new tools including simplified flicks and skill moves, new flair animations, or using the wall as a teammate."
It seems to be a mix between FIFA Street and 'Journey mode'.
"Football intelligence" is also a key selling point to the new title. It consists of three aspects:
1. Authentic game flow - for realistic football movement for all players on the pitch.
2. Decisive movements - four revamps of already existing concepts which include Strafe Dribbling, Controller Tackling, Set Piece Refresh and Composed Finishing.
3. Ball physics - new shot trajectories and more realistic tackle interactions for better 'physics driven behaviour'.
