What is EA Sports FC? (And how does it relate to FIFA?)
In May, EA announced in a blog post that after this year’s FIFA 23, the FIFA series will officially change its name to EA Sports FC, ending a nearly three-decade partnership with the Football Association.
“This new independent platform will offer new opportunities – to innovate, create and evolve,” said a statement from EA Sports’ Group GM, Cam Weber.
Weber made it clear that despite the naming license waiver, EA Sports FC will retain FIFA’s league, club and player licenses, which include “19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums and 30 leagues”.
EA included a number of messages of support for the move from the English Premier League, LaLiga, Bundesliga, European football body UEFA and more. FIFA itself has not released a statement at the time of writing. We can expect the first EA Sports FC information in July 2023.
