EA Sports 'The Chant'

With FIFA 17, EA are giving FIFA the biggest update since it first came to life in 1993. With a new engine and a new story mode for players to immerse themselves in, we wanted to create the most immersive football film ever made. 

‘The Chant’ follows the hero of the game, a young player set to make his mark on the footballing world, on his nerve-wracking journey from tunnel to pitch before a big game. As his heart beats out of his chest, he ascends the stairs towards the pitch. The crowd noise grows and grows until we hear that they are chanting his name. 

World famous team mate Antony Martial and world famous rivals Marco Reus, Eden Hazard and James Rodriguez make an appearance, eyeing him up suspiciously. And we are with him every step of the way.
