EA Extends FIFA Deal

EA Sports will continue to be the official sports technology partner of the Premier League for the FIFA video game series until 2019.

The new agreement will highlight the Barclays Premier League as the most authentic league in FIFA 15. The access granted will give detail to more than 200 players in the league, build true-to-life stadiums for all 20 clubs, and capture all the ups and downs of the matches by recording live match atmosphere during the 2013-2014 season.

"We're extremely pleased to announce the extension of our partnership with the Premier League, the most played league in EA SPORTS FIFA," Peter Moore, chief operating officer, EA. "It brings our award-winning game to new levels of authenticity and realism, and enables fans to immerse themselves in the drama and emotion of the league. And as a life-long Liverpool FC fan, I know exactly how that feels!"

FIFA 15 will be in stores September 23, available on PC, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4 consoles.
