‘FIFA 19’ Introduces Women’s World Cup Mode In New Update
Ahead of the Women's World Cup, which kicks off on 7 June, EA's latest FIFA 19 update allows you to play in (and win, of course) the final of the prestigious football competition.
A total of 22 teams are available for selection: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China PR, England, France, Germany, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Thailand and the current champions, USA. Ten of these are completely new to the game.
Brazil and Chile are the only teams to feature players with "generic faces", according to EA. Elsewhere though, stars like USA striker Alex Morgan - who also made an appearance in Kim Hunter's side of the original game's story-based The Journey mode - should be instantly recognisable.
If you want to take part in your own (virtual) Women's World Cup Final, simply head to FIFA 19's Kick Off mode. Once you've selected your team, the match will progress to the Stade de Lyon in France. You know, where the actual final is being held, on 7 July.

The final itself is only available for FIFA 19 players on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Those playing on Nintendo Switch can still enjoy the new team additions, but sadly they can't play in a special "Final match presentation". The update is live now for the specified platforms, so seek it out, and there it'll be.
Just to remind you, the Women's World Cup begins on 7 June and will end on 7 July - hopefully with England eclipsing their third place finish from 2015 to become champions of the world.
