EA’s FIFA History is changing its name. For its part, the International Football Federation made its statement and unveiled its plans for the future.
Now, the annual soccer game iteration drops the name FIFA to become EA Sports FC. A bit like its rival of yesteryear had before ESP, but for slightly different reasons. Here, it would be a dispute which is certainly the cause.
A new name therefore which should not pose too much of a problem since EA seems able to offer equally similar content thanks to the presence of more than 300 partners. However, despite this, he should not gain legitimacy. At least, that will be the case if we are to believe the International Football Federation.

In view of upcoming events (Qatar 2022, Women’s World Cup 2023), FIFA indeed plans to publish certain “non-simulated” games.
