Fulham follows Man City with FIFA 12 deal
23rd Aug 2011 | 14:59
Fulham is the latest Premier League football club to sign a deal to become an EA Sports 'Official Video Game Partner'.
Following Manchester City's 'unprecedented' FIFA 12 deal, Mohamed Al Fayed's boys have put pen to paper to receive a number of game-related benefits - even if none of them sound quite up to par to Blue Moon's "digital channels" and 3D head scans of the entire team.
Throughout the season, Fulham and EA Sports will be holding a range of Club events and experiences that Fulham fans will be able to get involved in.
These include a bespoke FIFA 12 trailer (that's the vehicle kind) which will be present at Craven Cottage on selected match days, EA Sports branding on the LED perimeter board and a Pro Player Tournament at the club's training ground to determine which Fulham player is best.
EA will also be producing a Fulham specific FIFA 12 game sleeve which fans will be able to download for free from the club's website (www.fulhamfc.com) around the launch of FIFA 12.
We bet Fulham Fans will still have to play in "Forest Park Stadium" in the actual game, but at least Dempsey's on the box.
Nick Harford, Football Business Lead at EA Sports said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Fulham Football Club and look forward to providing a series of FIFA 12 gaming experiences for both fans at Craven Cottage and players at the Motspur Park training ground."
Alistair Mackintosh, CEO at Fulham Football Club said: "Partnering with EA SPORTS is a fantastic opportunity to offer our fans a unique gaming experience on match days at the ground, and on-line. We are very excited at the prospect of seeing our players in this state of the art game, and welcome EA SPORTS as Official Video Game Partner."
FIFA 12 is out on September 30.
