Following the well-documented split between EA and FIFA, we now know that 'EA Sports FC' will be taking over as the future of the franchise.
As is to be expected, speculation among the FIFA community surrounding the details of the new game is rife on social media.
Well, we finally have some concrete information on the EA Sports FC licences, with EA having secured the rights to the biggest league in the world.
EA Sports FC x Premier League
EA has signed a new six-year deal with the Premier League ahead of the release of EA Sports FC.
According to various reports, the partnership will be worth close to £500 million per year, which is almost double the previous annual rate.
So, what does this actually mean for EA Sports FC itself? The new game will have the rights to all 20 Premier League clubs and everything that comes with them.
EA Sports FC will feature legitimate Premier League club names, players, kits, badges and stadiums for players to enjoy.
This news will no doubt come as a great relief to fans of the franchise amid worries that EA Sports FC would lose certain league licenses going forward.
