FIFA 17 News Post

Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund is the global cover athlete for FIFA 17. Over the past 2 weeks, more than 3.1 million votes were sent in. Marco received more votes than James Rodriguez of Real Madrid C.F., Anthony Martial of Manchester United and Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC.

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.

“It is incredible to see how fans get behind their favorite player – Marco plays for a great club, is really fun to watch, and he is very popular in FIFA Ultimate Team, so it makes a lot of sense that the fans picked him,” said Nick Channon, Senior Producer for EA SPORTS FIFA. “Reus joins an elite group of international football superstars who have appeared on the cover of FIFA over the years.”

“I’m honored to join a very distinguished group of footballers to appear on the cover of FIFA,” said Reus. “Most of all I am humbled that the fans have chosen me, and I will strive to make them proud with my performance on the pitch.”

FIFA 17 is scheduled to release in North America on September 27 and worldwide on September 29 on Origin for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I still think EA should have used all of them.

Now that Messi is off the hook as cover star, he goes crazy with the hair coloring lol.

PS: I hope he keeps the color for the first month of the season, EA puts it in the game, then he switches back to normal. No ability to edit player appearance = blonde Messi all year for us offline folks. Yeah, that'll be annoying.
