FIFA 21 celebrations list: How to do all of the new and old celebrations

(Image credit: EA)

The FIFA 21 celebrations list contains some notable changes from years previous – although nearly a year on from release, the tweaks feel firmly established now. Gone from FIFA 21 are the “Shush” and “A-OK” finishers, in the hope of reducing toxicity from Weekend League and Division Rivals. We'll let you be the judge of whether those removals paid off. Either way, there are still myriad ways in which you can celebrate your latest 35-yard humdinger, or empty net tap-in. Below we cover them all, in GamesRadar's FIFA 21 celebrations guide.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
