With real-life sport cancelled around the world due to the coronavirus crisis, watching FIFA streamers on Twitch has become increasingly popular of late.
FIFA matches have even been broadcast live on television with Premier League stars such as Raheem Sterling and Trent Alexander-Arnold taking each other on in a new competitive event.
But who are some of the best FIFA streamers to watch on Twitch? We’ve picked out five who are highly recommended.
The most-watched English Twitch stream for FIFA belongs to Castro_1021, an American whose real name is Edwin Castro.
Castro is known for opening a lot of packs, which many FIFA fans like to see when they tune in to streams on Twitch.
Like many top Twitch users, Castro has raised cash for charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support through marathon streams on the platform.
Castro is such a massive football fan that he named his dogs after the Toure brothers, Kolo and Yaya.
Hot on the heels of Castro when it comes to English language FIFA streams on Twitch is Nick28T. Real name Nicholas Kahwaji, the streamer has been steadily growing his audience for many years and is now closing in on recording a million followers on Twitch.
Nick28T is known for his generous giveaways during his Twitch live streams and he plays Call of Duty games on the platform as well as FIFA.
Nick28T is highly outspoken when it comes to FIFA and regularly speaks out against what he perceives to be the problems in the football game.
NepentheZ is another top FIFA streamer who is critical of the gameplay despite making a living out of the title, like Nick28T.
NepentheZ – whose real name is Craig Douglas – recently returned to Twitch having previously left the platform to join Mixer.
His 519,000 Twitch followers will be delighted to have him back, with NepentheZ attracting thousands of viewers in a five-hour stream on his return to the site.
NepentheZ has been a controversial figure in the past, however, as back in 2016 he was fined due to his involvement in an online FIFA gambling ring.
Another of the best FIFA streamers to watch on Twitch is bateson87, who has more than half a million followers on the site.
When the streamer – whose real name is Jamie Bateson – logs into Twitch, thousands of people usually tune in to watch him play.
Just like Castro, bateson87 is known in the FIFA community for opening a huge number of packs on the Ultimate Team game mode.
The Liverpool supporter, who is a part of the EA Game Changers programme, often opens rewards from his followers on his live streams.
Unlike most of the other streamers we have recommended here, FIFA fans who tune into RunTheFutMarket when he goes live on Twitch are actually likely to learn something about how the game works.
Regarded as one of the top traders on the game, RunTheFutMarket – whose real name is Nick Bartels – offers advice on the best ways to make coins in FIFA.
While the vast majority of his Twitch streams are on FIFA, RunTheFutMarket has also tried out a variety of other games including the cult classic Farming Simulator.
