Alex Scott has been confirmed as a commentator for EA Sports’ upcoming FIFA 22 video game and will be the first English female voice ever heard in the series.
Scott was a major Arsenal and England transfer and switched to a broadcast role since her retirement and became the BBC’s first female commentator at a 2018 World Cup.
Glad to finally share the news that I joined the FIFA family and will comment for # FIFA22! ???
This is a great moment for FIFA, for football and for women and girls all over the world. It is also a great moment for me personally and professionally. # FIFA22 pic.twitter.com/A1Lhozl7K6

Scott has since established himself as one of the most recognizable kennels in England, and the next step in the 36-year-old’s career is a historic place in the commentary team for FIFA 22.
“This is a great moment for FIFA, for football and for women and girls around the world,” said Scott. “It’s also a great moment for me personally and professionally.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the FIFA Gaming Institution, along with some of my brilliant presenting colleagues.
“Although I am the first English-speaking female broadcaster to have joined FIFA, I will certainly not be the last. I know this is just the beginning of a stronger female football representation from EA Sports and the football community as a whole.”
Scott previously played as a playable character in the game back in FIFA 16 and 17, before calling her career on the books at Arsenal 2018 after spending ten years at the club in two different spells.
