FIFA 21: EA comments on allegations by Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Highlight current changes Yes No Update: EA has now commented on the publisher's gaming rights in a statement: "We are aware that there are discussions about the licensing of players in EA Sports FIFA. The current situation on social media Channels is an attempt to drag FIFA 21 into an argument with some third party and has nothing to do with EA Sports. To be clear, we have contractual rights to show the images of all players in our game. We acquire these licenses directly from the leagues, teams and individual players. In addition, we work with FIFPro so that we can include as many players as possible to create the most authentic game. In these cases we have the rights to the player images in agreement with AC Milan and our longstanding partnership with the Premier League, which also includes the players from Tottenham Hotspur. "

Original message: Via Twitter, footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović has accused publisher EA of using both his name and face in FIFA 21 without prior permission. In his tweet he also mentions FIFPro. The network has been the global representative for footballers from all over the world for many years and regularly concludes deals with EA or Konami, which official players use in games such as FIFA or PES.

Just this year EA did a lot of advertising with the partnerships for the two clubs from Milan in the run-up to the release of FIFA 21. Including AC Milan, where Zlatan Ibrahimović is currently under contract. With the deal, EA will be able to use the official jerseys, players as well as the stadium in FIFA 21. Why the Swedish footballer only now noticed that he was part of the football simulation is probably another question. In any case, Ibrahimović would now like to investigate how he could become part of FIFPro without being asked or why FIFA is allowed to earn money with him.

A short time later, Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur also reported on Twitter and also called for an investigation. He, too, has probably never heard of FIFPro. It is very unlikely that there will be any changes here. FIFA 21 (buy now € 34.99 / € 34.99) is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The implementation for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S will follow on December 4th.
