EA Sports' FIFA 22 will feature a new commentary partnership of Derek Rae and Stewart Robson with Alex Scott becoming the first ever female commentary voice on the game.

Rae has been associated with FIFA commentary for some years now starting with his first appearance on FIFA 19 in the game's Champions League and Europa League match ups.

Lee Dixon partnered Rae and they went on to become the first-choice commentary duo over Martin Tyler and Alan Smith on FIFA 21.

36-year-old Alex Scott is effectively replacing Alan McNally and serving as the pitchside reporter on Career Mode. Scott will also hand players all the live updates on matches in one of the game's most popular modes.

According to Eurogamer, an example shown to the press at a preview event shows Scott reporting on news of a goal at another match that is being played.

FIFA 22 is all set to release on October 1. It will be the first edition to be available on next-generation new consoles too.

The game is reported to have included some major updates on gameplay and FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) as well as Career Mode.

We hope this is the year EA Sports gets everything right!
