EA Sports Announces Cover Athlete for FIFA 17
EA Sports has announced that fans chose Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund to be the global cover athlete of EA Sports FIFA 17. Over the past two weeks, fans have voted on the official FIFA Cover Vote Website for their favourite player among four FIFA 17 ambassadors, James Rodriguez of Real Madrid C.F., Anthony Martial of Manchester United, Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC, or Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund. Fans cast over 3.1 million votes, with Reus emerging as the victor.
Reus is a highly-decorated winger, and is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous attackers in Europe. Reus was named Footballer of the Year in Germany in 2012, and has 29 appearances with the German National Team. Reus was also recently named captain of Dortmund, and will be wearing the captain’s armband in the coming season.
All four players featured in this year’s cover vote are global ambassadors for FIFA 17 and influenced key gameplay features to bring innovation to the way players think and move, physically interact with opponents, take set pieces, and use new techniques in attack. Reus serves as the face of the new Active Intelligence System, which impacts off ball activity and the way players move, read and react.
