Gaming giant signs with the ISL club as an Official Partner.
Mumbai City FC have announced global gaming giant EA Sports as one of their Official Partners until the end of the 2023/24 season.
As part of the deal, EA Sports will have its logo on the back of Mumbai City’s first-team matchday shorts and will also get prominent visibility at their training facility at Nagoa Village Panchayat Football Ground.
Kandarp Chandra, CEO, Mumbai City FC, stated:
“We are delighted to welcome EA SPORTS to the Mumbai City family in this landmark moment for gaming in India. Our focus is to bring the fans closer to the club and through our partnership with EA SPORTS; our supporters will have more opportunities to engage with Mumbai City through the power of gaming, especially in times when our fans are unable to watch their favourite club play from the stands.
“By partnering with EA SPORTS, we aim to incorporate innovation and technology in our efforts to bring Mumbai City closer to wider audiences and football fans in India and across the globe. We look forward to working closely together on various initiatives over the next three seasons and provide our fans with immersive and interactive experiences in the years to come.”
The partnership comes on the back of EA Sports’ recent acquisition of licensing rights to incorporate the Indian Super League into FIFA 22.
