Well, this is pretty great. It was announced today that both Alex Morgan and Lionel Messi would be gracing the cover of the upcoming FIFA 16.
Messi is no stranger to the FIFA franchise, being one of the best futbol players in the world. It’s fantastic to see Alex Morgan on the cover as well. Earlier this year, Electronic Arts announced that for the first time ever, female players/teams would be in a FIFA game. We wrote an article on how we thought including women in FIFA was the best feature added in years.
Alex Morgan is easily one of the biggest names on the USWNT. (Who, are fresh off its dominant run in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada). The former Cal Golden Bear said in a statement that it’s “an incredible honor” to be on the cover of FIFA 16.
Not to be outdone, Christine Sinclair will be one of the cover athletes (along with Messi) if you live in Canada.
FIFA 16 will hit store shelves on September 22 across all platforms.
