FIFA 19 is having a controversial time off the pitch, but on it there are a number of welcome additions, including new officially-licensed stadiums that are a first for the series.
Most notably, Wolves’ stadium Molineux is in FIFA for the first time. The recently-promoted Premier League club have always played at make-believe ground Ivy Lane in the FIFA series, so fans are getting a kick out of finally seeing their home officially licensed. (Ivy Lane is still in FIFA 19, by the way.)
The official Wolves Twitter account is having a bit of fun with the addition, too.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ivy Lane for being a fantastic host to the club over recent years.
We leave with a heavy heart but the time has come for us to return home.

Elsewhere, Spurs new stadium is in FIFA 19. This stadium still hasn’t opened yet, and it still doesn’t have a name, so in FIFA 19 it’s simply called Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
FIFA 19 also has Fulham’s ground, Craven Cottage:
Cardiff’s ground, Cardiff City Stadium:
As expected, an officially-licensed Signal Iduna Park, home of Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund unceremoniously tore up their contract with Konami to be a partner club for PES 2019, which meant they’re not officially-licensed in that game. Now, lo and behold, their stadium is back in FIFA 19 after skipping FIFA 18.
And finally, it’s worth pointing out FIFA 19 has a few new Spanish stadiums. Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, Seville’s stadium, looks pretty good:
