EA Sports has announced that Fulham is the second Premier League side to have penned a deal with the game developer to offer its fans exclusive content in the upcoming FIFA 12 release.
Following the ‘unprecedented’ deal Manchester City signed with FIFA 12 that will see the side’s squad given the 3D head scan treatment EA has revealed Fulham will hold a series of Club events and experiences throughout the year to get the London side’s fans interacting with the football sim.
Whilst a Fulham specific FIFA 12 game sleeve is to be crafted and made available for download for free from the club’s website, a custom FIFA 12 trailer, the luxury caravan-esque variety not the gameplay sort, will be present at Fulham’s Craven Cottage ground on selected match days throughout the season.
With fans set to benefit from additional content opportunities, the Fulham players are also set to get in on the act with a Pro Player Tournament to be held at the team’s training ground to determine the side’s best FIFA star.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Fulham Football Club and look forward to providing a series of FIFA 12 gaming experiences for both fans at Craven Cottage and players at the Motspur Park training ground,” said Nick Harford, Football Business Lead at EA Sports.
Alistair Mackintosh, CEO at Fulham Football Club said: "Partnering with EA SPORTS is a fantastic opportunity to offer our fans a unique gaming experience on match days at the ground, and on-line. We are very excited at the prospect of seeing our players in this state of the art game, and welcome EA SPORTS as Official Video Game Partner."
