Inspired by the authentic small-sided form of football played in streets, cages, and futsal courts across the world; Volta gameplay immerses you in the flow of the street with new tools including simplified flicks and skill moves, new flair animations, and even the option to use the wall to your advantage.

Customization

Volta Football gives you countless ways to customize and personalize your player. From how they dress, to their hairstyle and tattoos, and new celebratory emotes, create your male or female player and showcase them across the various game modes in VOLTA Football.
