WSL partnered with EA Sports to add Women’s club teams in FIFA 23

The reveal trailer for EA Sports’ last instalment of its FIFA-stamped football simulation game, FIFA 23, is out now, with women’s club football confirmed to feature in the game for the first time ever.

With Chelsea’s Sam Kerr featuring as cover star for FIFA 23 alongside Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé, the top tiers of English and French women’s club football, respectively known as the Barclays Women’s Super League and D1 Arkema, will feature in game for the first time ever. The 2023 women’s World Cup will also officially feature in the game along with the 2022 men’s World Cup.

Commenting on the deal, Navin Singh, Commercial Director of the FA, said:

“I’m delighted that the Barclays Women’s Super League will be one of the first women’s club competitions to feature in EA SPORTS FIFA 23, with the franchise historically having one of the largest and most engaged gaming communities in the world. 

“The added visibility a global brand like EA SPORTS will provide for our league, teams and players cannot be underestimated. 

“This very much supports our ambition to accelerate the growth of the women’s game in England, and highlights our commitment to open up the Barclays Women’s Super League, and make it even more accessible, to new audiences around the globe.”

Francois Vasseur, Marketing Director of the French Football Federation, added: 

“This partnership between D1 Arkema and EA SPORTS is excellent news for the league, the clubs, the players, but also for the fans who, starting this year, will be able to discover their favourite players and participate in exclusive activations. 

“It represents a huge step for D1 Arkema as a leading league with a worldwide following.”

EA Sports FIFA 23 will be released on 30 September 2022 on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
