It’s easy to forget about EA’s newest football title with all the FIFA 23 news this week. Earlier this year, Electronic Arts announced its 30-year-long partnership with FIFA would end after FIFA 23. Since the announcement, EA has been slowly gearing up to launch its new football series, EA Sports FC. On Tuesday, the American publisher announced that it had expanded its partnership with Spanish top flight La Liga.
This expansive new partnership will provide EA Sports FC with LaLiga’s branding package, two leagues, and cup competitions. La Liga host two of the biggest clubs in world football, Barcelona and Real Madrid. The deal between both companies will provide EA Sports FC with an authentic La Liga look and an immersive experience.
“EA SPORTS FC is committed to delivering the most authentic and immersive experiences in global football. Our innovative new partnership with LaLiga further elevates that ambition and solidifies both organizations’ position at the centre of football culture,” said David Jackson, Vice President of Brand, EA Sports FC.
“The visible reach and scale of this partnership is deeply exciting, as is the opportunity to deliver incredible experiences for fans through in-game innovation, interactive entertainment and grassroots initiatives.”
