Huge News. Fifa 16 will feature Womens Teams
Award-winning video game series FIFA 16 will, for the first time, include women’s teams in the game.
Twelve international teams, including England, will appear in EA SPORTS FIFA 16, out in September.
England captain Steph Houghton, pictured above, was delighted with the news:
“The whole team are thrilled to be included in EA SPORTS FIFA 16. It’s a really exciting year for women’s football with the forthcoming World Cup and to find out we will be included in FIFA for the first time is a special feeling.
“To be one of the first female players included in the game is something we’ll always be able to look back on and be proud of. Hopefully it will help raise the profile of the women’s game even further.
“Quite a few of us in the team play FIFA so I’m sure there will be a bit of banter about our ratings and a few extra competitive games while we’re away in Canada…. I’m looking forward to scoring as myself for the first time!”
