The publisher of FIFA, EA Sports, and the global union of professional soccer players, FIFPRO, have announced an extension – and therefore renewal – of the contract that binds both parties.
With this extension of the deal how long it will arrive or its duration has not been specified, but the companies have said it will be a “long term commitment“.
With the newly released FIFA 22, possibilities began to emerge about a name change in the saga. This left several initial doubts, such as current contracts with brands, etc.
But now, with the agreement extended, EA will be able to continue using the physical aspect of the players, Champions League, LaLiga, etc.. In addition to the other leagues like the Premier, something that in essence can be extrapolated to the rest.
“Our players remind us that one of the most important aspects of the EA Sports experience is the profuse immersion created through authenticity created by the world’s best leagues, teams, and talents.“.
This was the beginning of a statement offered by the Vice President of EA Sports, David Jackson, who ended up clarifying the way in which intend to continue offering such content.
“This is how we continue to continually blur the lines that separate the worlds of physical and digital football.“.
This news comes the same week that the new name of the brand is being considered and in which EA states that children should not spend money on FIFA.
EA Sports FC would be the new name of FIFA, according to a trademark registration
The editor states that they are right now reviewing the right agreements with the name, which are apparently separate from football agreements and gaming licenses.
We leave you, in passing, with 18 cheetah and cheap players with whom you will surely sweep in FIFA 22.
