Before EA Sports has promised a ‘major leap forward’ for FIFA 17.

During Crystal Palace’s recent trip to Vancouver four members of the squad enjoyed a sneak peek of EA SPORTS upcoming FIFA 17 release when they were invited to the developers headquarters in Vancouver.

This time, four Crystal Palace players, Andros Townsend, Yannick Bolasie, Hiram Boateng and Luke Croll, who were fortunate enough to see what’s in store for the new game at EA’s HQ, trying out the game for a couple of “hotly contested” matches.

This also ties into a new partnership which will see EA Sports as the Eagles official video game partner for 2016/17, which includes the sponsorship of all junior shirts throughout the season.

Like the recent Juventus deal, this partnership will ensure that the fanzone includes two FIFA 17 gaming pods and the popular EA dugout on match days.

CPFC Commercial Director, Barry Webber, said “I am delighted that EA SPORTS have joined our corporate family and we are now the first club in the Premier League to have EA SPORTS feature on our junior shirt.

Dan Holman, Head of Product Marketing for EA SPORTS FIFA also commented “It’s great to be working with another Premier League club and we look forward to bringing our authentic football experience to their junior fans”.

This latest EA Sports announcement follows news at the weekend that German Champions Bayern Munich were also enhancing their relationship with the FIFA football series with a partnership of their own.

Like Juventus, Bayern are now an “official partner” of EA Sports, which means the German team has recieved a full headscan treatment.

“Powered by Frostbite, FIFA 17 will feature new and updated 3D headscans of stars like Neuer, Robben, Lewandowski and Coman,” reads a statement on the official FIFA 17 website.

In addition to this Bayern’s home stadium, the Allianz Arena, has also been brought to life and recreated in-game as EA SPORTS become the official video game partner of FC Bayern.
