Future launching Football Week for iPad - EA Sports to sponsor

Interactive magazine features live in-game updates plus FIFA tips

CVG owner Future has partnered with the Press Association to launch Football Week, an international iPad magazine for fans of the English Premier League.


Set to launch in early February and go on sale every Friday, Football Week will preview all Premier League games with editorials and team news, plus the latest and historical stats.

Over the weekend these will be updated with text commentary, in-game stats and post-match analysis from the Press Association.

In addition, football writer Jonathan Wilson (The Guardian, Goal, World Soccer) will supply an exclusive column on modern tactics, while will provide up -to-the-minute injury news.

EA Sports has also signed on as the official gaming partner for Football Week. A weekly dedicated EA Sports Zone will feature tips, tactics and competitions around FIFA 13 and its popular FIFA Ultimate Team game mode.

Football Week publisher Mark Cantwell said: "We truly believe this is the ultimate accompaniment to the weekend's Premier League action. We have focussed on filling the gaps that traditional media like TV, magazines and websites leave behind, to put the consumer at the heart of everything we do and complete their weekend football experience. We are particularly proud of The Match Hub - it's as live as it is possible to get and custom designed for the iPad."
