Everton FC’s home ground, Goodison Park will make its gaming debut in FIFA 14, after the team penned a new two-year deal with EA Sports as the club’s official gaming partner.
The announcement follows on from a successful partnership with the brand over the past two years. The inclusion of Everton’s stadium in the latest version of the game is a prominent feature of the deal.
EA Sports paid a visit to Goodison Park earlier in the year to capture the details of one of the oldest football grounds in the world.
Dan Holman, head of UK product marketing, EA Sports, said: "We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Everton and especially to be adding Goodison Park to the stadium roster in FIFA 14.
"This will ensure fans will get a completely authentic experience. We look forward to working closely with the club over the next two years."
Everton’s commercial director, Dave Biggar, added: "We’re delighted that EA Sports are once again joining our portfolio of official partners – and even more so that Goodison will make its debut in FIFA 14.
"The game is hugely popular so we have no doubt that Evertonians will be looking forward to playing inside the stadium, even if it is in a virtual sense."
