The BBC Sport and Sky Sports expert will appear in the next version of the title as field reporter
Alex Scott will become the first English-speaking female FIFA video game commentator when FIFA 22 is announced this autumn.
The BBC and Sky Sports pundit, who competed as a player for Arsenal and England, called the move a ‘big moment’ to bring more representation into the industry. She will reportedly appear in the game as a reporter from the field.
Scott follows in the footsteps of Spanish presenter Nira Juanco, who has become the first female commentator for any language in the history of the series in FIFA 21.
What was said?
EA, the publisher of FIFA, has moved to a more diverse presentation for its popular game, but there are more obstacles that can be removed.
After all, the company’s American football series Madden has long included female sideline votes, but a co-commentary role in a major sports title remains elusive.
Nevertheless, Scott seems delighted to be taking part in the upcoming FIFA 22 match, which is expected to be one of the most popular releases of the year. She definitely deserved the opportunity because she was an important aspect of BBC coverage in her post-play career.
