[Multi] FIFA 2009 Cover Players
Posted by Chris Evans on 09.29.2008

A new FIFA game comes around every year at about the same time, autumn/winter and it is at the same time every year (about now) that the footballers who are to grace the cover of the game are revealed. Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and AC Milan's Ronaldinho will appear on the cover of the game which will be appearing on the PS3, 360, Wii, PC, DS and PSP along with mobile phones. No Mac though which is sure to annoy some people.

Other players such as Petr Cech and Guillermo Ochoa will appear on the covers of regional versions of the game alongside Ronaldinho. All the players who will appear on the game covers around the world will also appear as Mii characters on the Wii version of the game.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 26, 2008 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today unveiled its world-wide lineup of cover athletes for EA SPORTS™ FIFA Soccer 09. Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and AC Milan superstar Ronaldinho will be the face of FIFA Soccer 09 worldwide on each available platform— the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360®™ video game and entertainment system, Wii™ home video game system, PC, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo DS™, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system and mobile.

Rooney and Ronaldinho will also appear as customized Mii™ characters exclusively for the Wii™ in FIFA Soccer 09 All-Play. EA SPORTS has created unique versions of each athlete and other cover stars, which will all be playable in-game.

FIFA Soccer 09 marks the fourth year (2006-09) the 22-year-old Rooney has been featured on the cover of the FIFA franchise while the 28-year-old Ronaldinho appears on the FIFA cover for the fifth time (2004/06/07/08/09).

"It is a great honor for me to be part of the FIFA franchise again. Having my own Mii character in the game is just fantastic. Playing with it on the pitch and shooting outrageous goals by simply shaking the controller is football on a new level", said Ronaldinho.

The two soccer greats will be joined by numerous stars from all over the world on regional packaging, including Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema in France, Daniele De Rossi in Italy, Kevin Kuranyi in Germany, Petr Cech in the Czech Republic and Maurice Edu and Guillermo Ochoa in North America.
