Is FIFA Plus worth it?

All soccer fans should have FIFA+ in their app roster. While it’s not yet compatible with many devices, FIFA+ is free to use and offers thousands of live soccer games each month.

But live games aren’t even the best part of FIFA+. The streaming service has many premium-quality series and documentaries, covering topics from grassroots stories to World Cup campaigns. There are also several great player profiles that focus on footballers like Dani Alves, Mohamed Salah, Sam Kerr, and Wendie Renard.

The FIFA Plus Home page features a navigation bar at the top, followed by a Countdown to Qatar 2022 banner and rows of on-demand video content.
The FIFA+ landing page highlights the latest video content and upcoming FIFA events, as seen on a Google Chrome browser.

You can also view past, present, and future soccer games from your favorite leagues on FIFA+. This Match Centre feature is handy if you follow several leagues from various countries—including continental competitions like the UEFA Champions League.

While FIFA+ only launched in April 2022 (besides its lackluster device compatibility) it’s one of the most accessible streaming services out there. FIFA+ is available in nine languages—including English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. There are even more language options planned for the future, plus more inclusive features expected to roll out as the 2022 FIFA World Cup approaches.

FIFA+ is also the first step in FIFA’s plan to diversify its media platforms. FIFA developed the streaming service alongside a plan to launch a video game franchise that will replace the popular EA Sports’ FIFA series.

FIFA Plus content

For a free service, FIFA+ is packed with content. There are live matches, on-demand shows and documentaries, and full match replays from past FIFA competitions. We particularly love those archived games because there’s no other reliable place to watch complete men’s and women’s World Cup matches.

Beyond video, FIFA+ also has exclusive news articles, match statistics, and interactive games. The free-to-play soccer trivia and fantasy games are pretty cool. But we’d be lying if we didn’t say we spent more time browsing the Match Centre feature. It’s a great way to score up-to-date info on your favorite teams while keeping tabs on upcoming matches.

The FIFA Plus Live page displays rows of live games, match highlights, and a calendar of the current day’s matches.
FIFA+ features a wide variety of live games, paired with live stats and match report data.

FIFA Plus live games

As we’ve mentioned, FIFA+ hosts many live games each month. These range from FIFA-sanctioned tournaments to domestic league competitions—including men’s, women’s, and youth-level matches.

While FIFA+ promises over 40,000 live matches each year, those games are only accessible if they aren’t already airing in your country.

The recent FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup is a prime example of the FIFA+ location restrictions. While over 100 countries had free access to the entire 32-game tournament, US-based viewers did not because the games aired on FS1, FS2, and Fox Soccer Plus.

FIFA Plus shows and documentaries

FIFA+ excels when it comes to its series and documentaries. The streaming service has such a wide range of on-demand content that it’s almost overwhelming. While there’s no handy Watchlist feature at this time, you can easily fall down the soccer rabbit hole by entering your favorite player’s name into the FIFA+ search box.

Here’s a partial list of what kind of titles FIFA+ offers:

  • 2002: This Is an Asian Odyssey
  • Academies
  • Asia Stories
  • Creator Network
  • Dani Crazy Dream
  • Die Mannschaft
  • Discovering
  • Eyes of the World
  • The Girls of Favela Street
  • Gol de Cuba
  • The Hand of God
  • Ronaldinho: The Happiest Man in the World
  • Icons
  • Keane & Vieira: Best of Enemies
  • Mysteries of Football
  • Ultimate Goal

FIFA Plus specs and features

Because FIFA+ is free, you don’t have to worry about any account and streaming limitations like you would with Netflix or Hulu. A FIFA.com account isn’t even required to watch everything FIFA+ offers. But we recommend signing up for one to save your Continue Watching progress across every device you use.

Other standard features typically found on streaming services have yet to roll out on FIFA+. Eventually, you’ll be able to manage your notification settings more efficiently and save your team and competition preferences. We’re also hoping the service will introduce a Watchlist feature.

App issues: We had trouble signing in to the FIFA+ iOS app on our iPhone 8. There’s no profile icon in the app’s main menu, so we had to click on the Gaming tab for the option to sign in. Hopefully, FIFA will fix that in a future update.

Video and audio quality

Video on FIFA+ streams at a maximum 1080p resolution and comes paired with 2.0 stereo sound. Those are standard qualities for a streaming service of this kind, like MLB.TV and NFL+. Though, we’ve noticed most live games on FIFA+ stream at 720p.

For the best streaming experience, you’ll want to ensure your internet connection speed is at least 5 Mbps. But you’ll want a more robust connection if you’re not the only device on the network.

FIFA Plus app-compatible devices

FIFA+ isn’t available on many devices—only web browsers and mobile devices, to be exact. At launch, FIFA promised the service would become accessible on a wide range of devices. But no further details have been revealed.

Pro tip: If you previously had the official FIFA app on your phone or tablet, an April 2022 update would’ve rebranded it to the FIFA+ app.

For now, you can head over to the Google Play and iOS storefronts to download the FIFA+ app.

Final take

Whether you prefer watching the Premier League, MLS, NWSL, or other soccer leagues, FIFA+ is an excellent streaming service to have on your side. It’s free to use and has everything from live and on-demand games to match statistics and fantasy brackets. We especially love the Match Centre feature, where you can view game schedules to follow up on your favorite leagues.

Most of the live content on FIFA+ pertains to lower-tiered or youth competitions. But the classic matches and on-demand series make FIFA+ worthy of your time.

The biggest downside to FIFA+ is that it’s not available on many devices. You can only check it out on web browsers, phones, and tablets. But eventually, it’ll expand to more platforms—highlighting FIFA President Gianni Infantino’s vision to connect the beautiful game with more people worldwide.
