Electronic Arts has revealed that Clint Dempsey, US Men’s National Team Captain and Seattle Sounders FC star midfielder, will appear on the North American cover of FIFA 15 alongside Lionel Messi.
Clint Dempsey recently participated in the 2014 FIFA World Cup with the US Men’s National Team. He led the team to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Brazil, before they lost a close match to Belgium. Dempsey scored two goals in the tournament, while becoming the first American player to score in three consecutive World Cups.
Dempsey’s response to being on the cover was “It’s an amazing opportunity in my career to be on the cover for FIFA 15, a game that has played a big role in growing the popularity of the sport in America,” said Dempsey. “To join the class of other elite athletes who have appeared on previous covers is very humbling and I am extremely grateful for this honor.”
FIFA 15 is expected to launch on September 23 in North America, September 25 in Europe, and September 26 in the UK for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS, PS Vita, and PC.
