Mbappé and Kerr take centre stage as cover stars for FIFA 23

Whilst getting hands on with the latest annual release is the most important aspect, there is always much hype surrounding the cover stars for EA’s FIFA series. With FIFA 23 being the last FIFA ever, EA have fully pushed the boat out, grabbing Kylian Mbappé and Sam Kerr as joint cover athletes.

FIFA 23 will launch later in the year on all the usual formats (expect Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation, Switch, PC), but today it’s all about those footballing stars who are to be found gracing the front covers. It’s here where EA have unveiled superstars Kylian Mbappé and Sam Kerr as cover athletes for the most expansive FIFA title yet – EA SPORTS FIFA 23.

Mbappé and Kerr will be featured on FIFA 23’s Ultimate Edition Global cover, marking the first global cover featuring a female player. Additionally, Mbappé will be front and centre on the Standard Edition, while Kerr will have pride of place on the Standard Edition in Australia and New Zealand, and as a worldwide Amazon exclusive.

“Both Kylian and Sam are generational talents, and having them grace the covers of the final FIFA is a monumental moment not only for the franchise, but for EA SPORTS as a whole,” said David Jackson, VP Brand, EA SPORTS FC. “FIFA 23 is our most innovative and feature packed title ever and we’re energized to have two of football’s greatest players share their love of the game with fans around the world.”
