SEATTLE, July 19, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) today announced that US Men’s National  Team Captain and Seattle Sounders FC star midfielder, Clint Dempsey,  will appear on the North American cover of FIFA 15, sharing the  honors with global footbalsl sensation Lionel Messi. The reveal was made  at the start of today’s Sounders FC vs. Tottenham Hotspur friendly with  a Tifo display unveiled across the Xbox Green Zone at CenturyLink Field.  This will mark the first time that an American has appeared on the  game’s cover since 2011.

Dempsey, who led the US Men’s National Team to a heroic performance in  the 2014 FIFA World Cup, is considered one of the best American soccer  players in history. He made and broke records during the tournament,  netting the fifth fastest goal of all time with a strike in the first 29  seconds of the USA vs. Ghana opener, and became the first American to  score goals in three consecutive World Cups. The 31-year-old forward  spent seven seasons in the Barclays Premier League before returning to  the United States to join the Seattle Sounders FC, cementing himself as  one of the biggest stars in Major League Soccer.

“Clint Dempsey is a world class athlete that embodies the heart and soul  of the sport,” said Stuart Lang, VP of North America Marketing,  Electronic Arts. “He showed his lethal combination of grace and  toughness at the World Cup, and plays with enormous heart and  determination on the pitch. He is the perfect ambassador for FIFA 15,  a game that’s all about bringing the emotion and intensity of the sport  to life.”

“It’s an amazing opportunity in my career to be on the cover for FIFA  15, a game that has played a big role in growing the popularity of  the sport in America,” said Dempsey. “To join the class of other elite  athletes who have appeared on previous covers is very humbling and I am  extremely grateful for this honor.”
