EA Sports recently announced women’s club teams would be a new feature on FIFA 23.
Currently, gamers will be able to choose between teams from the Women’s Super League in England and the Division 1 Féminine in France.
This announcement has been made just days after Sam Kerr was unveiled as the cover star for the game, alongside PSG star Kylian Mbappe.
It is the first time a women’s football player has appeared on a global FIFA cover, although Steph Catley and Alex Morgan featured on the respective covers of the Australian and US editions in 2016.
The latest updates from EA Sports are a sign of the publisher’s efforts to increase female representation in their flagship football video game.
Women’s football fans are understandably delighted with the news, and will be eagerly awaiting the launch of FIFA 23.
With anticipation mounting, GiveMeSport Women runs through which women’s teams have been confirmed so far.
