Today, Electronics Arts and FIFPRO, global representative of professional footballers, have announced an extension of their partnership. The two companies have thus renewed their commitment to offer fans of EA Sports football games “the greatest and most authentic football experience for more than 150 million players globally.”
Electronic Arts says, “For the past 28 years, EA Sports has created the world’s greatest sports game – loved by fans, gamers and the football community around the world. EA Sports football franchise is powered by over 300 licensed partners, including FIFPRO, who help generate the game’s unparalleled authenticity, both now and in the future. In addition to the thousands of player names and likenesses that are supported by the FIFPRO licensing agreement, EA Sports’ football experiences are the only ones where fans can play in the iconic UEFA Champions League, CONMEBOL Libertadores, Premier League, Bundesliga and LaLiga Santander. ”
“We are excited to continue our long-term partnership with EA Sports, a true partner who is committed to creating the best interactive experience for football fans around the world,” he said. Theo van Seggelen, Chief Executive Officer of FIFPRO Holding.
We point out that in the official EA communication we never talk about “FIFA“, but only of” EA Sports football franchise. “Impossible not to think about the statements about the possible name change of the game.
Staying on the subject, EA’s most recent football game is a real success: FIFA 22 is first, second, third, fourth and fifth in the Italian ranking.
