Tottenham and FIFA fans can expect the in-game team to sport improved likenesses thanks to a new partnership between the club and EA Sports.
EA and Tottenham have agreed a three-year partnership that will make EA Sports the official video game partner of the club.
"We are extremely excited to join a world class football club like Tottenham Hotspur as an Official Club Partner," said Matt Bilbey, senior vice president and general manager of Football, EA Sports. "This is an opportunity for us to create a deeper connection with their passionate, global fan base, and use our game as a platform to engage Spurs supporters all season long."
Tottenham will visit the United States next week for a three match pre-season tour. While in New York, EA Sports will be conducting 3D head scans of Tottenham Hotspur players at Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station. This will enable the FIFA development team to capture high-quality and authentic 3D digital player models for future versions of the FIFA video game.
In addition, over the course of the partnership, Tottenham Hotspur and EA will develop a range of initiatives to entertain and engage fans both at White Hart Lane and across their media channels. This includes exclusive videos featuring Tottenham Hotspur players, the ability for fans to predict match outcomes using the EA Sports game engine, and exclusive tournament footage taken from the club's Training Centre to determine the best FIFA 13 player in the squad.
And that's not all. EA Sports will create a special Tottenham Hotspur game packaging sleeve for FIFA 13, which fans will be able to download from the club website prior to the game's launch.
Tottenham Hotspur joins seven other English Premier League teams that have become club partners with EA Sports. The other club partners are Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle, and Manchester City.
