FIFA 23 is Christmas number one in the UK boxing charts

This year’s UK Christmas Boxed Games Chart is here and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s FIFA at number one.

EA’s mega-successful soccer series is a frequent winner of the number one Christmas crown and last week likely saw another sales boost due to the attention surrounding the controversial World Cup in Qatar.

FIFA games have occupied the Christmas top spot ten times since sales began in 1984, making it the number one favorite Christmas franchise (compared to Call of Duty’s nine Christmas chart-toppers).

Since 2006, only three games outside of the FIFA and Call of Duty franchises have managed to snag Christmas number one: Skyrim (2011), Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018), and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (2020).

Other entries in this year’s Christmas Top 10 also come from well-known franchises – and overall the rundown looks very similar to last year’s – when FIFA was also number one. Like last year, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is back in the top 10. And Nintendo also has two Pokémon games, just like last year.
