EA extends FIFA license until 2022


EA has today announced that FIFA have extended their football licence until 2022.

The deal, which began in 1993 includes FIFA events such as the World Cup and the FIFA Interactive Cup as well as giving the ability to brand its football game in an official manner.

"Our relationship with EA Sports is of high importance to FIFA," said Jerome Valcke, Secretary General of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

"The FIFA video games are a key experiential component in our work to communicate the FIFA brand and its values all over the world. This is highlighted by the 2.5 million football fans that have competed in this year's FIFA Interactive World Cup, which is just one example of the power of our partnership with EA."

FIFA 15 then?

Now they just need to get the Champions League from Pro Evo, and Europa League would be good too. Add a bit more spice to Career Mode.

Europa League is already licensed in FIFA 13, then there is Champions Cup, FA Challenge Cup, Johnstones Paint Trophy and Capital One Cup, which was mostly allowed because it isn't an alcoholic beverage... specifically Carling who aren't in FIFA at all even as shirt sponsors.

Is the Europa League there? I thought it was just called Euro League with no real gloss or charm over it. Where as you look at ECL on Pro Evo and you can tell it's a special occasion.

In more shocking news. The Sky is blue! Imagine a world where EA didn't have Fifa or Madden. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
