FIFA 16 Brings First Female Cover Athlete in Steph Catley of Australia

By   /   1 year ago

Electronic Arts promises that it is changing things up with FIFA 16 in numerous ways and the biggest we have seen in that regard so far is the inclusion of women national teams.

However, they did not stop at just that, we now have the first female athlete to grace the box art cover of the game.

The athlete who got chose is Steph Catley, the Australian who is going to stand alongside non other than Lionel Messi on the Australian version of FIFA 16.

Catley is the captain of Melbourne Victory FC and also plays as a defender for Westfield Matildas. She has beaten two teammates namely Katrina Gorry and Kyah Simon in order to be featured on the cover in a voting that was held nationwide in Australia.

As expected, this is a major event for Catley who is nothing less than super siked about it:

Words can’t describe the excitement I’m feeling about being on the cover of FIFA 16, it’s a dream come true!. It’s been a huge year for the Westfield Matildas and getting this recognition from EA SPORTS and FIFA fans for all our hard work is a great step forward for women’s football on both a local and global scale. I’ve always been a huge FIFA fan and knowing that I will be playable in the game, as well as being on the cover alongside Lionel Messi, is a career highlight for me! I would like to thank Australia for voting and cannot wait to see it on the shelves!

Personally I think that the female teams in FIFA 16 and a female representation on the cover is the right way to do, what do you think?
