FIFA16 Cover Vote

2 Jul

779030-59e279e6-13eb-11e5-97cb-591a1d9825c0EA Sports is currently running a contest to determine which player will be on the cover of FIFA16 in Australia, France, Latin America, Mexico, and the UK. Interestingly, the Australian candidates are all members of the Australian Women’s National Team: Kyah Simon, Steph Cateley, and Katrina Gorry. That’s right, female footballers are the only players in the running for Australia. All the nominees for the other countries are, unsurprisingly, male.

What is also interesting about these three female nominees is that they are only 24, 21, and 22 years old respectively. They’re just babies! What an honour to be considered for such an item so early in your career.

Voting ends July 5 for all the regions, with the winners and covered revealed on July 8.
