Sheffield FC is the world’s first football club and for their 164th birthday, EA SPORTS gave them something special.
The club’s original red and black kit was made available in FIFA22 for the very first time as an unlockable kit in the popular FIFA Ultimate Team mode:
We whipped together this little piece of silly fun to present the F.O.A.T. - the First Of All Time. From absolutely nothing at all to a finished animation in under a week and with next to no budget for flashy graphics or fancy animations, we developed the concept and designed the frames and the absolute magicians at Musclebeaver brought it all to life.
Apart from the main animation, we also helped develop a new kind of rulebook that tries to capture the unwritten rules of the FIFA22 community: the FOAT Code.
