EA inks new two-year deal with Premier League

US publishing giant Electronic Arts has extended its partnership with the Premier League for the upcoming EA Sports FC 24.

In a post on the sports organisation's website, it said that this deal will see all 20 clubs in the league be represented in the football blockbuster. This follow's the partnership between EA and FIFA falling apart last year.

“Through our long-term partnership, the Premier League and EA Sports have inspired generations of football fans and we look forward to developing this in the years to come," Premier League CEO Richard Masters said.

“The new EA Sports FC 24 game is a significant evolution which we are proud to be a part of. Beyond this, we will continue to develop existing projects as well as introducing exciting new ones.

“Thanks to EA Sports’ support, the ePremier League tournament has been a major success over the last five seasons and we are now developing community initiatives together across the country and in other locations globally.”

EA Sports president Cam Weber added: “EA Sports FC is built on a platform of authenticity and innovation, and our renewed partnership with the Premier League will bring fans closer to their favourite clubs and players.

“Across the entire EA Sports FC ecosystem, the ePremier League, and our shared commitment to investing in community-level football, we’re proud to call the Premier League our partner both on and off the pitch.”

Earlier this year, reports pointed to this partnership being worth $587 million
