FIFA 23 Stadiums Thread

Hi guys, I've started a new thread for FIFA 23 for Stadiums we think should be added to the game in FIFA 24 onwards and for all of the remaining issues with current stadiums in-game that still haven't been addressed. Please keep this thread for realistic requests of Stadiums that should be in FIFA and not for personal wish lists. (Also no point requesting Premier League, La Liga or Bundesliga stadiums to be added as they should all be in FIFA 23 onwards due to those leagues having full treatments). Now EA have the UEFA license they really need to start adding Stadiums for all Champions League & Europa League regulars to improve the authenticity. Also, now EA have the Serie A license more stadiums from Italy would be really welcomed..

Can i also please make a special mention of the fact you have gone to great length last year to add the ability to edit your team's stadium in Create Your Club in Career Mode, but haven't added this feature Offline into the Edit Stadium section, where we can only currently choose a Generic Stadium & rename it.. This is a massive fail! This is where we wanted the Edit Stadium feature the most! We needed to be able to Edit Stadiums of other teams BEFORE entering into Career Mode, for immersion purposes. So i request that you please port this new feature into Edit Teams > Stadiums in the Offline menu..

(And please also make it so that when you Download Latest Squads it doesn't overwrite your edited Stadiums!)

General Issues

* Add 3D stairs instead of 2D stairs in ALL stadiums! (Especially on Next-Gen!)
* LED ad boards should be added, where they are in real life.
* Bring back the tunnel view before the game at half time or even after the game.
* Stadium exterior is good but its unrealistic its shown that often. In reality you see the stadiums from a heli-cam only before big and important games.
* Surroundings of the stadium exteriors are mostly 2D which is poor on todays hardware.
* Lighting and shadows in the most stadiums have to be redone since the sun seems to have a wrong position.
* A lot of stadia still look grey and lifeless (upper tiers of the Nou Camp, Wembley etc)
* More stadium screen content (line-up or score and scorer in screen).
* Jimmy Jib Camera Cranes have to be updated or removed as they don't appear in real life stadiums very often and in the game they look really poor.
* Stadiums look small / sense of depth totally missing.
* Railings should not be at the height of the ankles. No excuses for that.
* Large Banners
* Season opening ceremonies
* More realistic night lighting
* Dynamic lighting
* Dynamic weather
* More individual entrance ceremonies.
* Before the game players warming up and tv presenters and reporters on the side-lines
* Players warming up before the game could be a mini game while loading the game.
* Aircraft flyovers (done only in specific countries for special occasions)
* Celebrating Crowds (Realistic! Not jumping all the time but if they do they do it usually all in the same rhythm.
* Players giving autographs to supporters, throwing their shirts into the stands or swapping shirts with opponents.

Stadium Issues

Old Trafford

* The Adidas Logo is missing on the roof of the East Stand.
* The Adidas logo has to be added on the stadium seats in the East Stand.

* The seating alignments are wrong and wonky, thus the seating lettering "Manchester United" in the North Stand, and "Stretford End" in the West Stand look mis-aligned.
- The seating lettering isn't outlined in black, like in real life.
- The "i" in the Manchester United lettering on the seats has the wrong format.

* There should be a statue of Sir Alex Ferguson outside of the "Sir Alex Ferguson Stand" and decoration on the outside of the stadium.

* On the Glass front of the back of the Alex Ferguson Stand should be two ventilation grills, but in Fifa it's all glass. No Sir Alex Ferguson Lettering mounted outside. Dozens of other details missing or wrong.

Wembley Stadium

* Led ad boards between the stands should be added like in real life
* Bigger led screen as the one in FIFA is way to small
* The adjustable "roof" is usually closed in real life football matches but not in FIFA
* The ad boards behind the side-line should be curved like the stadium and not straight like in FIFA.
* Goal nets are to small and there must be more space behind goal net and ad board
* Crowd still isn't 50/50 in noise and amount.
* Exterior view was there for an intro but isn't shown if you actually play in the stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

* All of the interiors of the corner tunnels should be covered in Tottenham blue
* The big walls where the south stand meets the east and west should also be Tottenham blue.
* The pitch should be elevated with clear slopes like that of Old Trafford.
* The technical area and players tunnel should have 3g turf.
* The shape of electronic pitch side hoardings are incorrect and should continue all around the pitch unlike at other stadiums.
* There should not be a pitch level tunnel at the halfway line in the east stand (in the original plans but not in reality).
* The camera is facing the wrong way! Tottenham have stated that the camera angle will be the same as that at WHL (as in the west stand w player dugouts should be visible, not east stand).. this shall be confirmed vs Palace.
* FIFA needs to add led ribbon boards; even if they can't there is signage in the middle tier where there shouldn't be currently


* The space between the pitch and the stands is to big for side were the dugouts and the players tunnel is placed

Edit Stadiums

Currently, we can edit a generic stadiums name, but why not take it one step further to try and bridge the gap between licensed / generic stadiums? What about seating colour? Hoarding colour? Goal net type, pattern & colour? Pitch pattern? We want full control over the look of stadiums..

This is how I expect Edit Stadiums to look:

* Rename: Nou Camp
* Seating Colour: Red etc.
* Goal Net Type: Rectangle, Triangle, Deep (Wembley, Bernabeu etc.)
* Goal Net Pattern: Plain, Stripes, Chequered etc.
- Colour 1: White
- Colour 2: Red
* Pitch Pattern: Large Horizontal etc.
* Hoarding Colour:
- Tier 1: Blue
- Tier 2: Red

Or go one step further and port over the following stadium creator/editor (to FIFA 20) that was in FIFA Manager 12:

Noticed something that we have missed? Then share it with us and i will update it into the OP so we have everything collected at one point..

P.S. Please rebuild everything accurately on Next-Gen consoles!!
