FIFA president weighs in on EA Sports FC switch

Yesterday, EA announced that they were ending their partnership with FIFA and would continue the franchise under the name 'EA Sports FC.' 


After nearly 30 years of collaboration in creating interactive football experiences, EA is ready to enter a new era in which EA Sports FC will be the future of football for EA. EA released a full statement yesterday, assuring fans that everything they know and love from EA's existing FIFA franchise will be included in EA Sports FC, including popular game modes like Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, and VOLTA Football.


Fans were also concerned about licensing agreements and whether certain players/teams would remain in the game, which EA addressed by saying, "Our unique licensing portfolio of over 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums, and 30 leagues that we've continued to invest in for decades will still be there, uniquely in EA SPORTS FC." This includes exclusive partnerships with the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, and the MLS, among others."


They also informed fans that FIFA 23 will continue to be developed with their current partner and that the next FIFA will have more features, game modes, World Cup content, clubs, leagues, competitions, and players than any previous FIFA title.
