Not only is this the first year you’ll be able to play as women’s teams in FIFA 16, it’s also the first year they’ve made the cover of one of the biggest video games on the planet. Nicely done, EA.
At least three markets—the US, Australia and Canada—will have women on the game’s box, all of them sharing space with Lionel Messi, who is bound by contract until death to get his face on the front of FIFA, whether he wants it there or not.
In the US it’ll be Alex Morgan, in Canada it’ll be captain Christine Sinclair and in Australia it’s Stephanie Catley. I hope all three enjoy being as badly photoshopped onto the cover as their male counterparts.
