EA Sports has given UK football fans the chance to play FIFA 19 ahead of its release date.
Fans who attend next month’s eWorld Cup can play FIFA 19 more than a month before its September 28 release date.
The FIFA eWorld Cup event takes place at The O2 in London on August 4.
“Witness the Final Showdown between the world’s best FIFA 18 players live at the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final 2018,” reads an official post.
“Come and meet your favourite FIFA personalities such as Spencer FC and ChuBoi at this spectacular one-day event!”
But the big news is that ticket holders will also be able to play FIFA 19.
“Twenty consoles loaded with FIFA 19 await at the O2 from 12:00 on 4 August,” the post continues. “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.
The day begins with the semi-finals of the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Finals, followed by a special celebrity tournament.
The Final Showdown of the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final begins at 6pm, and there’s an after-show party for VIP ticket holders from 8pm.
EA Sports will also use the event to reveal Ultimate Team news for FIFA 19.
