Alex Morgan FIFA 16 Cover

U.S. Women’s National Team star Alex Morgan will appear alongside Lionel Messi on the cover of FIFA 16, EA Sports announced in a press release.

Morgan willl be on the cover of the United States version of the game and Canadian Women’s National Team captain Christine Sinclair will be featured on the box art of the Canadian version, marking the first time a woman has appeared on the cover of a FIFA game.

Last year, Clint Dempsey graced the cover of the U.S. version of FIFA 15.

The game includes 12 women’s international teams available to play in Kick Off mode, offline tournaments and friendly matches, including the U.S. and Canada.

“I know people all over the world play this game and I’m really excited that FIFA 16 is putting such an important spotlight on women’s soccer,” Morgan said in a press release. “And now to share the cover with today’s greatest player is surreal.”

FIFA 16 is expected to be available Sept. 22 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

Quick Take

EA Sports seems to be committing fully to the idea of women’s soccer in FIFA 16, and interest in the U.S. Women’s National Team is high at this time. However, we’d like to see women’s teams available in more game modes. Perhaps the franchise can build on this if successful.
