Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard will join Messi on the cover of FIFA 15 in the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
After an incredible season last year Hazard makes his debut on the FIFA cover, upon seeing the artwork he had this to say.
“I have played FIFA all of my life and it’s a huge honour to be asked to be on the cover of FIFA 15. Now I have played the game I can say it’s the most realistic football game I have seen, so I cannot wait to challenge my friends and team-mates with FIFA 15 and show off the new moves.”
The cover also marks the start of a new “long term partnership” between EA and Chelsea football club. The partnership will bring exclusive social and digital content to fans of the club.
Dan Holman, Head of UK Product Marketing at EA Sports had this to say about the partnership.
“We’re delighted to have Eden on the cover of FIFA 15 and to be working with him and Chelsea in showcasing the Barclays Premier League to the amazing level of detail that the game will deliver this year. Eden’s quick, direct and skilful approach is a joy to watch on the pitch, and a dream come true for FIFA Ultimate Team fans, and it shows why he is often one of the first names in their concept squads.”
