EA Sports has officially unveiled EA Sports FC, the new brand name for its popular football video game series that was formerly known as FIFA. The announcement comes after the publisher decided to end its 30-year partnership with FIFA, the global governing body of football, last year.
According to EA Sports, EA Sports FC is more than just a name change. It is a new platform that will bring together the biggest competitions, leagues, and players across the men’s and women’s game, as well as new authentic experiences that will delight and engage fans around the world.
“This is where the story of EA SPORTS FC begins. We’re building on 30 years of leadership and history creating experiences that bring the global football community together, and continuing to take it into a fan-first future,” said Nick Wlodyka, SVP & GM, EA SPORTS FC. “EA SPORTS FC will be a symbol for the sport, a symbol of innovation and change, and we’re energized to show our fans more about the future in July.”
EA Sports FC will continue to feature more than 19,000 real-life players, 700 teams, 100 stadiums and 30 leagues that have been part of the FIFA series for decades. That includes exclusive partnerships with the Premier League, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A, MLS, and many more. EA Sports FC will also include popular game modes such as Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and VOLTA Football.
However, EA Sports FC will also introduce new innovations and opportunities for fans to enjoy and interact with football in different ways. EA Sports said it is committed to reinvesting in the sport and working with a large and increasing number of partners to expand to new areas that bring joy, inclusivity and immersion to a global community of fans.
More details about EA Sports FC will be revealed in July 2023.
