In a historic move Sam Kerr is set to be the first female cover star in FIFA history. She will be joining Mbappé, who is set to make his third appearance as the cover star, on the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23.
Mbappé is back for Fifa 23
It seems likely that Mbappé will continue to feature on all versions of FIFA 23, but for now it is unknown, but rumours suggest he has signed a long term deal with EA.
As it stands it seems likely he will be the Cover Star of the franchise for a while, even once it changes name to EA Sports FC.
In an exciting move the franchise and the game, Sam Kerr featuring on the front is huge. It demonstrates just how popular the Women’s game has become around Europe, after always being popular in the USA.
Sam Kerr makes history
It’s also further confirmation of the new leagues that are set to be added to the game, with many women’s sides being one of the big additions for this year’s FIFA 23.
The Cover Star on FIFA is often one of the highest rated players in the game and Sam Kerr’s appearance on the front is an indication of that. If she isn’t the highest rated, the Chelsea and Australia forward will definitely be up there in the game.
More information will follow in an announcement on the 20th of July.
