Players have often said that they get motivation from the fans, but equally, some critics think it could bring a better, more technical edge to the game. If the German Bundesliga is anything to go by, it could mean the end of the much discussed home advantage, levelling the playing field and, yes you guessed it, meaning it’s all to play for.
While there will be more viewers than ever, the matches will be playing out in empty stadiums. The broadcasters have confirmed that they will be using crowd noise from Fifa 2020 for viewers at home, but for the players there is no doubt that the lack of fans will change the game.
Either way, getting the right atmosphere at home is more important than ever, so while we will leave the decorations, the snacks and the drinks to you, check out our guide to setting up your TV for the perfect viewing experience, so you can be sure that you won’t miss a second of the action.
There's also tons of other sport available to watch via Freeview Play, with the BBC's Wimbledon Relived, the FA cup, and highlights from both London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
