Cristiano Ronaldo Named Cover Athlete For EA Sports’ FIFA 18
EA Sports announced that Cristiano Ronaldo will be the cover athlete for FIFA 18.
This announcement comes on the heels of Real Madrid (and Ronaldo) winning the Champions League on Saturday. In that match, Ronaldo scored two goals and led his team to a 4-1 victory over Juventus. Real Madrid became the first team in history to win back-to-back Champions League titles. Needless to say, this is a great time for the Real Madrid forward to grace the cover for his first time.
EA Sports had this to say via a press release:
The world’s best player has helped fuel the biggest leap forward on the pitch that we’ve ever delivered,” said Aaron McHardy, Senior Producer for EA Sports FIFA. “We are extremely excited to partner with Cristiano – working with him we learned a lot about his unique play style and what makes him so special. His passion, energy and global fanbase make him the perfect ambassador for FIFA 18.”
