The new sports game FIFA 23 does not yet have an official release, but the first streamers are already showing it with early access. FIFA 23 hits Twitch. German Twitch streamers in particular jump on it. Of the 5 largest channels, 4 came from Germany: Eliasn97, GamerBrother and Trymacs and MontanaBlack.
How popular is FIFA 23 on Twitch?
- FIFA 23 isn’t actually released until September 27th, but some streamers have early access. Yesterday on September 24th it really started. At its peak, more than 364,000 spectators watched.
- Because there are only a few channels that are already allowed to stream FIFA 23, these few streamers have excellent viewership. And because Americans can’t do anything with football and the Spaniards are in Minecraft fever, the German Twitch streamers are at the top.
- In the “Peak Train Shows” FIFA 23 was already in 3rd place in the last 3 days on Twitch – only Just Chatting and Minecraft were higher: Minecraft hosted the “Minecraft Championship 25” yesterday and the Spanish Twitch streamers showed it .

The 24-year-old wanted to become a professional soccer player himself, switched to FIFA after a serious injury to his leg and became an e-sports professional for Hertha BSC.
Eliasn97 streamed FIFA 23 for “only” 8 hours, but with a peak of 90,870 viewers and an average of 72,500, it is by far the most popular channel on Twitch.
How does he see the new FIFA? Elias Nerlich is enthusiastic: He says the new FIA is fast, tricks are performed brilliantly and shots are almost always possible. That’s good for strong players. He will pull through the next few weeks (via twitter).
