Today, Electronic Arts introduced superstars Kylian Mbappé and Sam Kerr as cover athletes for the most extensive FIFA title ever, EA Sports FIFA 23. Mbappé and Kerr will be featured on the cover of the Ultimate Edition Global of the title, which represents the first global cover featuring a female player. In addition, Mbappé will be present in the Standard Edition of the title, while Sam Kerr will be present in the Standard Edition in Australia and New Zealand and as a world exclusive on Amazon.
David Jackson, VP Brand, EA SPORTS FC, said:
Both Kylian and Sam are two generational talents and their presence on the cover of the latest FIFA is a memorable moment not only for the franchise, but also for EA SPORTS as a whole. FIFA 23 is our most innovative and feature-rich title ever and we are thrilled to have two of the greatest soccer players sharing their love of the game with fans around the world.
Chelsea FC striker Sam Kerr is one of the sport’s most talented stars and FIFA 23 marks Kerr’s first cover in FIFA. Captain of the Australian women’s national team and the only player to have won the Golden Boot in three different leagues on three different continents, Sam is undoubtedly one of the best footballers in the world.
Sam Kerr added:
It is an honor and a dream come true to be on the cover of FIFA 23. It has been incredible to work with Kylian and the entire EA SPORTS team and I can’t wait for fans to get their hands on a copy of the game. Paris Saint-Germain forward and world football icon Kylian Mbappé is on the cover for the third consecutive year, making him one of the select few to earn this status. At just 23, Mbappé is one of the sport’s brightest young stars, on and off the pitch, and represents the best of a new generation of phenomenal footballing talent.
Kylian Mbappé then concluded:
I am thrilled to have been chosen for the third time on the cover of EA SPORTS FIFA and am even more thrilled to share a cover that honors women’s football with a great player like Sam Kerr. As a huge fan of the game, I’m thrilled for the latest edition of FIFA and can’t wait to see you all on the pitch.
Fans can tune in to the world reveal trailer di FIFA 23 on July 20 at 6pm and find out more about the most innovative and connected edition of the franchise.
