After Konami announced last month, they would not renew their licensing contracts with A.C. Milan and Inter Milan, the writing was on the wall for EA Sports to step in.
And step in they did.
Today, EA Sports announced their long term exclusive licensing agreement with both teams.
“Continuing to elevate strategic club partnerships in Italy is crucial to our vision and commitment to grow the love of sport, and in this case, global football worldwide through authentic interactive experiences,” said Nick Wlodyka, Vice President & GM, EA SPORTS FIFA. “We look forward to offering fans an innovative and interactive FIFA experience for years to come.”
On another note, the partnership between EA Sports and AS Roma has come to an end. Going forward, AS Roma will be named Roma FC.
You can still expect to see the same AS Roma real-world, authentic players and related likenesses in EA SPORTS FIFA 21 and EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Player Chemistry within EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Ultimate Team will be unaffected by these changes.
With all of that said, here are a couple of FIFA 21 trailers featuring A.C. Milan and Inter Milan, in historic San Siro stadium, as well as 8 new FIFA 21 screenshots.
