Following a contract with EA since FIFA Street and FIFA 13, the Argentinian star Lionel Messi’s spell on the box cover for their annual sports title seems to be coming to an end. Who will take his place on the box of FIFA 17?
The world’s greatest footballer signed a 4 year year, and that expires this year. It is unknown whether he will extend the contract, as his appearance doesn’t do him any harm, but it will be interesting to see who EA substitute in his place.
It wouldn’t surprise me at all if EA didn’t get a few football/soccer stars on board, and run a community competition for the fans to decide who features on the box. Hell, they might even approach the player of the year in one league, or one of the stars on a league’s leading team come May.
In each region, there are generally different players alongside the cover star, but who would you choose to see on the box? Would the self loving Cristiano Ronaldo take up the position without question, or would he be demanding too much money for the use of his face? So, who would you want to look at every time you load up the game?
