Real Madrid’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is very grateful to be chosen and named as the global cover star of FIFA 18.
According to the 27-year-old Portuguese, “It is a real pleasure to be on the cover of FIFA 18. It’s a great feeling and I am grateful to have been chosen.”
EA Sports have released the artwork for FIFA 18 and it is the first time for Ronaldo to be featured as the cover star of the game.
Last year’s cover edition was Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus after winning a fan vote that ended Lionel Messi’s four consecutive years of being the EA Sports poster boy.
Ronaldo received over 3.1 million vote cast on EA Sports website to beat out Real’s James Rodriguez, Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
Moving forward, new details about the game will be announced at EA PLAY on June 10 and FIFA 18 is scheduled to be released worldwide this coming September 29.
FIFA 18 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 systems.
The 32-year-old forward had an outstanding year where he won the Champions League final and won his second La Liga title over Juventus.
