EA becomes official Tottenham Hotspur video game partner

Deal set to create "a range of initiatives to entertain and engage fans"

EA and Tottenham Hotspur FC have announced a three-year deal that will make EA Sports the official video game partner of the footy club.


"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, the club's home pitch, and more widely across their media channels," reads the official press release.

"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."

EA Sports will be conducting 3D head scans of Tottenham players while the team's on its pre-season tour of the US, for use in future FIFA games.

It'll also be releasing a special Spurs game packaging sleeve for FIFA 13, which fans will be able to download from the club's website, and running a mobile gaming trailer at White Hart Lane during select matches next season.

Seven other English Premier League teams that have become club partners with EA Sports: Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle, and Manchester City.
