For the first time in its history, EA launched women’s team in FIFA16. EA continues to outline the growth of women’s football by featuring US World Cup winner Alex Morgan on the FIFA16 cover. The American appears next to super star Leo Messi.
Alex Morgan will be one of three women to appear on regional covers of the game. Christine Sinclair will be featured on the cover in Canada alongside Messi, while Stephanie Catley will be on the Australia cover. Messi will have a spot on every regional cover, along with the worldwide cover.
This year’s game from EA Sports will feature several women’s national teams for the first time in the franchise’s history. Germany, the United States, France, Sweden, England, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, China, Italy and Mexico will all be playable teams, according to EASports.com.
Football, the fastest growing sport in the US, is benefiting from a fantastic boost with the triumph of US women team during the World Cup in Canada. Another focal point that will help football (or soccer) elbow itself among US sports.
