Via Twitter, soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimović has accused publisher EA of using both his name and face in FIFA 21 without prior permission. In his tweet he also mentions FIFPro. The network has been the global representative for footballers from all over the world for many years and regularly concludes deals with EA or Konami, which official players use in games such as FIFA or PES.
Just this year EA did a lot of advertising with the partnerships for the two clubs from Milan in the run-up to the release of FIFA 21. Including AC Milan, where Zlatan Ibrahimović is currently under contract. With the deal, EA will be able to use the official jerseys, players as well as the stadium in FIFA 21. Why the Swedish footballer only now noticed that he was part of the football simulation is probably another question. In any case, Ibrahimović now wants to investigate how he could become part of FIFPro without being asked or why FIFA is allowed to earn money with him.
A short time later, too Gareth Bale reported by Tottenham Hotspur on Twitter and also called for investigation. He too has probably never heard of FIFPro. It is very unlikely that there will be any changes here. FIFA 21 (buy now € 34.99 /€ 34.99 ) is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The implementation for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S will follow on December 4th.
