Argentina and Barcelona icon Leo Messi is our FIFA 15 global cover star:
This is Messi’s fourth appearance on a FIFA cover after featuring on FIFA Street, FIFA 13, and FIFA 14. In that time, Messi has set the record for most goals in a year (91) and marked a milestone as the only player to receive the FIFA Ballon d’Or four times.
This past season, the 27 year old had 28 league goals for FC Barcelona and captained Argentina to the FIFA World Cup final. During the World Cup Messi won four Man of the Match awards, scored four times and received the Golden Ball award for best player of the tournament.
Leo Messi was originally announced as an EA SPORTS Football Ambassador in November 2011, a partnership that has not only put him on the cover of multiple FIFA titles but also brought a new street football pitch to Barcelona thanks to the Messi foundation and EA SPORTS.
As with previous FIFA releases, we will have a number of regional covers featuring local talent with Messi. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we reveal those.
