Electronic Arts announces
the renewal of its partnership with FIFPRO, the
global union of professional association football/soccer players. A report
EA may be moving away from the FIFA brand, so this may play into that somehow.
Or not. Here's word:
For the last 28 years, EA SPORTS has created the
world’s biggest sports game - beloved by fans, players, and the football
community worldwide. The collective strength of the EA SPORTS football franchise
is fueled by 300+ licensed partners, including FIFPRO, who help generate the
game’s unparalleled authenticity, both now and long into the future. In addition
to the thousands of player names and likenesses that are supported by the FIFPRO
license agreement, EA SPORTS football experiences are the only places fans can
play in the iconic UEFA Champions League, CONMEBOL Libertadores, Premier League,
Bundesliga, and LaLiga Santander.
