The Old Firm rivalry rages on digitally this year as Celtic Park and Ibrox Stadium arrive in EA Sports FC 24. After years playing in a fictional arena, Scottish football fans finally get signature home field advantage.

Both iconic Glasgow grounds were originally planned for last year’s FIFA 23. But EA delayed the landmark inclusion to polish the stadium experiences further for their rebranded football series.

Now the legendary venues officially join EA Sports FC 24, alongside 5 other new arenas like Italy’s Stadio Friuli and Luton Town’s Kenilworth Road. Fans eagerly await taking the pitch in hyper-accurate recreations of the famous Old Firm battlegrounds. Electronic Arts have a habit of adding stadiums into the series each year but these additions were most welcome.

Teaser images showcase the meticulous detail developers digitally captured. Crisp grass, vivid seating and flickering lights immerse players in the stadium atmosphere. It’s a Scottish soccer fan’s dream brought to life. There are even more leagues licensed this year including the famous Scottish SPL.

Supporters expressed delight at the overdue opportunity to experience true home field glory. For over a decade, the fictional Eastpoint Arena hosted all matches. But the 54,000 capacity generic ground paled beside Celtic Park and Ibrox’s prestige.

Many joke this addition mercifully concludes EA’s Eastpoint era. Finally fans can flood the field for derby day victories surrounded by familiar stands. Authenticity heightens the drama and tension.

Beyond the stadiums themselves, EA Sports FC accurately renders every detail down to the iconic entrance tunnels. Celtic’s lucky hoops banner and Rangers’ marble halls set the stage for sporting spectacle. With the player faces not being a problem as the developers are known for their face capture trips to grounds, hype is at an all-time high.

With mere weeks until the September release, anticipation builds for the most immersive and emotional Old Firm showdowns yet. Hearing the roar of 60,000 diehard fans never sounded so sweet.
