The Premier League and EA SPORTS™ have had a long-standing partnership, with the videogame company a Lead Partner of the League since the 2016/17 season.
Being Lead Partner of the Premier League means that EA SPORTS, already recognised as a global leader in sports entertainment, has a deeper partnership and integration, which includes on-screen branding on all of the League's global broadcasts, sponsorship of the official Player of the Month and Season awards and EA SPORTS integration in stadia pre-match.
The Premier League's official football video game competition - the ePL - is also played on EA SPORTS FIFA, with stars from around the Premier League battling it out online during the temporary suspension of the Premier League during April and May 2020 to take the trophy for their club.
