FIFA Dies, EA Sports FC is Born; Now Official

This time officially - in 2023, the FIFA series will change its name to EA Sports FC. But before that happens, the developer intends to provide soccer fans with „the best FIFA ever”.

  • EA Sports has made an official announcement about the renaming of FIFA to EA Sports FC;
  • The popular football series, however, is to retain licensed league games, teams, stadiums, etc;
  • in 2022 the game will be released as FIFA for the last time - that's almost certainly FIFA 23;
  • Beginning 2023 it will be released as EA Sports FC - details about this brand will be announced in the summer of 2023.

Rumors circulating the web for some time have now been confirmed. The FIFA series will officially change its name to EA Sports FC. However, this will not happen in 2022, but only in 2023. In the meantime, EA Sports intends to serve soccer fans "the best FIFA ever" - with the World Cup 2022 mode (the tournament will take place in November and December on the Qatari pitches).

What will change? Initially, apparently not much - at least in theory. However, the developer has far-reaching plans for the new brand. "It's not just a rebrand" - as it assures in the official announcement, an excerpt of which you can read below.

More information about EA Sports FC will be revealed only in the summer of 2023.

"Everything you love about our games will be part of EA SPORTS FC – the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes will be there. Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and VOLTA Football will all be there. 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, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A, the MLS – and more to come.

This new independent platform will bring fresh opportunity – to innovate, create and evolve. This is much more than just a change of symbol - as EA SPORTS, we’re committed to ensuring EA SPORTS FC is a symbol of change. We’re dedicated to meaningfully reinvesting in the sport, and we’re excited to work with a large and increasing number of partners to expand to new authentic experiences that bring joy, inclusivity and immersion to a global community of fans. [...]

EA SPORTS FC will allow us to realize this future and much more…but not before we deliver our most expansive game ever with our current naming rights partner, FIFA, for one more year. We are committed to ensuring the next FIFA is our best ever, with more features, game modes, World Cup content, clubs, leagues, competitions, and players than any FIFA title before."
