Fifa 15: Lionel Messi named global cover star for new game that's released in the UK on 26 September
Barcelona and Argentina No 10 was also on the cover of last year's edition
Tuesday 15 July 2014
Lionel Messi has been announced as the global cover star for the latest edition of the wildly popular FIFA video game series.
EA Sports has also announced the game will be released in the UK on 26 September.
This marks Messi’s fourth appearance on the cover of the series after featuring on Fifa Street and in 2013 and 2014.
EA Sports will announce the regional cover stars for their various editions in coming weeks. Joe Hart, Gareth Bale and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have appeared in recent editions in the UK.
Messi is the only four-time winner of the Ballon d’Or and was named as the World Cup 2014 Player of the Tournament on Sunday night.
However, Argentina lost the final 1-0 to Germany and several high profile commentators, including Diego Maradona, questioned whether the Barcelona man deserved to win the Golden Ball.
Fifa 14 was the second-biggest selling game of last year after GTA V.
