I am obsessed with the FIFA football game and have published every copy for the last 30 years

A FIFA-crazy dad has every copy of the popular footie computer game released over three decades.

Josh Mitchell has collected all 29 editions of the game since its launch in 1993.

In total, the 37-year-old has 86 versions across different consoles, including Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo 64.

He also has online versions for his iPhone.

Josh’s collection also includes other EA football games including 2002 and 2006 Fifa World Cup and Euro 2000 and 2004 European Championship versions.

He also has spin-off games like Fifa Street and Fifa Manager.

Josh unveiled his collection after manufacturer EA Sports announced it was cutting ties with Fifa and launching new footie video game franchise EA Sports FC.

The stay-at-home dad, whose favorite version is the original Fifa 94, started collecting at the age of seven.

And he says he misses quirks, including the ability to foul the referee.

Josh, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, said: “It’s just the best game and always has been.

“I remember the graphics being better than anything as a kid, but I miss the fun parts of the game.

“It’s so realistic now, and part of the romance was fixing any glitches.

“I must have spent hundreds of pounds over the years and still play the games to this day. You never get too old.”

The new game franchise will continue to feature most of the top teams, leagues, stadiums and players as EA Sports has separate licensing agreements.

However, the Fifa-run World Cup is written from the content.

Dad-of-two Josh will complete his collection when Fifa 23 is released later this year.

He said: “Without Fifa in the title it won’t be the same but I’m sure the game will be just as good. Everyone will still call it Fifa.”
