Norwich City supporters will be able to play at the home of the Canaries in the latest instalment of the Fifa computer game series – after an accurate representation of Carrow Road was added to the game for the first time.

The EA Sports games have been popular with computer users since the late 1990s but traditionally only the top stadiums have been digitally recreated.

Fifa 16, which is released on all consoles on September 22, features Carrow Road following City's promotion to the Premier League this summer.

The stadiums of fellow top-flight new boys Bournemouth and Watford are also included for the first time.

The player ratings for Fifa 16 have also been revealed online, with players rated out of 100.
