WREXHAM AFC will be one of the teams included in the upcoming FIFA 22 video game.
EA SPORTS has announced a multi-year innovation partnership with Wrexham AFC ahead of the launch of the game.
The agreement will see the club become playable within FIFA’s Kick Off mode; located in the Rest of World category, as outlined by club co-chairmen Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
The partnership will also see EA SPORTS supporting Wrexham AFC’s work off the pitch, in the local community via an initiative with Wrexham Glyndwr University, and the provision of a community lounge at the Racecourse Ground in the future.
“It’s great to be partnering with Wrexham AFC and to support the club’s commitments to the Wrexham community and its fans,” said David Jackson, EA SPORTS VP Brand.
Jackson added, “We’re excited to launch innovative community projects in collaboration with the Club, and for Wrexham fans to experience playing with their side in EA SPORTS FIFA 22 when the game releases later this month.”
Humphrey Ker, Executive Director, said: “There are only a small number of brands within football that can be classed as iconic and that every club wants to be associated with.
“Everyone is truly excited about Wrexham joining FIFA 22. The co-chairmen talked about making Wrexham a global force when they became its custodians and are now able, with our fans, to take on the Rest of the World, as part of that journey.”
