EA FC 24 Secures Multi-Year License Deal with European League
The Eredivisie has officially extended its partnership with EA Sports, guaranteeing comprehensive representation of Dutch top-flight football in EA FC 24. This announcement is set to delight Career Mode enthusiasts, who can now embark on a journey to unearth the hidden gems of the Eredivisie and nurture them into future superstars. It should also excite Ultimate Team fans as it would allow them to construct a unique squad that defies the conventional playing styles.
EA Sports Vice President David Jackson expressed his delight following the Eredivisie license renewal deal.
“The Eredivisie maintains a very special place in the world of football. With incredible talent and emblematic clubs that are known across the globe, the league is a leader in the development of elite players and coaches. Our renewed partnership underlines a commitment to continually offer the most authentic interactive football experiences in the world. We are excited to further enhance our cooperation with a league that has been a part of the EA SPORTS family for so many years.”
The Dutch top tier league boasts an illustrious history, with Ajax, PSV, and Feyenoord standing among the 18 prominent teams. Rich in tradition and legacy, this league serves as a fertile ground for nurturing future stars. This league serves as a fertile breeding ground for promising talents, where aspiring stars like Xavi Simons and Jurrien Timber aspire to emulate the footsteps of Ryan Gravenberch and Cody Gakpo, vying for attention from the elite European clubs.
With the recent news of EA's separation from FIFA, concerns were raised about the potential lack of authenticity, including generic teams, kits, and players. However, fans can now breathe a sigh of relief, as EA's dedication to delivering a true-to-life experience remains unwavering.
“Our unique licensing portfolio of more than 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums and 30 leagues that we’ve continued to invest in for decades will still be there, uniquely in EA SPORTS FC. That includes exclusive partnerships with the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, the MLS – and more to come,” the official announcement from EA Sports read.
The end of the partnership with FIFA may have led to the unfortunate exclusion of the licensed World Cup and the FIFA name in the game's title. It's crucial, however, to recognize the significant strides EA Sports has taken to curate an exclusive portfolio, which now features all five major European leagues. This achievement underscores EA's dedication to delivering an immersive and authentic football gaming experience.
EA Sports FC 24 has demonstrated a strong commitment to expanding its content, with particular emphasis on women's football, which has emerged as a significant area of growth. The game now features renowned women's tournaments, including the Women's Champions League, Barclays Women's Super League, NWSL, and D1 Arkema. As the momentum continues to build, fans can eagerly anticipate the inclusion of more women's leagues in the game.
