FIFA 21: Celebrations and moves – Controls for PlayStation, Xbox and PC

FIFA 21 has added new signature celebrations to the game. If you're looking for the controls to make them happen on PlayStation, Xbox or PC - we've got this quick guide to get you started.

FIFA 21 will launch on 9 October with new and improved celebrations.  Some popular celebrations have been removed in a bid by EA to stop “toxic behaviour”.

The “shhh” celebration, which the developers say were often used to stall games, is one of those removed.

“We were told by the community that there’s toxic behaviours in the game, and we wanted to make sure we removed them,” Fifa 21’s lead game-play producer Sam Rivera explained.

“So we removed some of the celebrations that people thought were not the best idea to have in the game.”

The A-OK celebration has also been canned and EA said that “more changes are planned” around celebrations. Celebrations have also been shortened overall to help improve game play performance.

FIFA 21 has added multiple new celebrations, including the “Finger Swipe” and the “Selfie” next to adboards. A number of so-called signature celebrations have also been added.

Another new celebration is one from South Africa’s very own Siphiwe Tshabalala. His iconic dance after scoring the first goal for Bafana Bafana at the 2010 World Cup on home soil can now be replicated in the virtual world.
