EA Sports’ latest game in their super successful FIFA series of football sims, FIFA 15, is almost here, and it’s a big deal in most of the world. Especially in the UK, home of the sport, and of the EPL, one of the biggest football leagues in the world. And to celebrate this launch, UK games retailer, imaginatively called GAME, is going to make the launch an event to remember.
Players from the Premier League will be showing up at various GAME stores throughout the country on September 25, as players wait to get their hands on their copy of the game, engaging them in games of FIFA on consoles. The players who will be showing up include England midfielder Jordan Henderson, Tottenham Hotspur centre back Eric Dier, Paul Dummett, Adam Federici, David Elgar, and trio David Meyler, Liam Rosenior and Tom Ince. Additionally, fans at the GAME Edinburgh St James Centre will have the chance to be greeted by Hearts’ Danny Wilson on Friday September 26th, from 3-5pm.
“FIFA 15 is going to be a winner with both football and gaming fans alike and with such a top line up, we’re expecting big crowds. We know how important it is to fans to get gaming as soon as possible so we’ve got our staff match fit to open over 300 of our GAME stores at midnight so gamers can get their hands on it as soon as the whistle blows,” said Dave Howard, Stores Director at GAME.
FIFA 15 launches soon. Stay tuned for further coverage.
