FIFA 14 Bale

EA Sports unveils UK player to join Lionel Messi in anticipated sequel.

EA Sports has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale will co-star as the cover model for FIFA 14, appearing alongside Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi.

Appearing on the UK, Ireland and Middle East covers when the game launches this September, Bale will be joined by Arturo Vidal of Juventus and Mexico's Javier Hernández who will represent other regions around the world.

“The players on the front cover since I was a kid have obviously been legends of the game," Bale commented. "It's a great honour for me and I'm very proud of it."

EA Sports said the young footballer will also act as one of the publishers “football ambassadors” and that he helped out in development by donning a motion capture suit.
