LEO MESSI TO STAR ON GLOBAL COVER OF FIFA 15
EA SPORTS today announced that Leo Messi is set to appear on the global cover of EA SPORTS FIFA 15 – due out late September 2014. Falling just short after a stunning performance that saw him receive top individual honors at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 27 year-old won four Man of the Match Awards and scored the same number of times in the tournament. Messi had 28 goals for FC Barcelona this past season. EA SPORTS is honored to have Messi lead a roster of international superstars set to appear on the cover of FIFA 15.
This season will mark the fourth consecutive time that Messi stars on the cover of a FIFA title previously appearing on FIFA Street, FIFA 13, and FIFA 14. In that time, Messi has been on top of the football world at FC Barcelona, setting the record for most goals in a year (91) and marking a milestone as the only player to receive the FIFA Ballon d’Or four times. Leo Messi was originally announced as an EA SPORTS Football Ambassador in November 2011, a partnership that has not only put him on the cover of multiple FIFA titles but also brought a new street football pitch to Barcelona thanks to the Messi foundation and EA SPORTS.
