Let’s Vote Our Favorite FIFA 17 Cover Player

Lionel Messi has been FIFA’s main cover star for four years, but this time, the box won’t feature him at all. FIFA 17’s cover vote begins today. Who will be on the cover of FIFA 17? Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus are all vying for the covetous cover.

FIFA gamers can now cast their vote on the official EA website here. Voting ends on July 19 when Messi successor will be announced.

Seems Lionel Messi will not return as the face of FIFA for the next installment in the franchise. The Barcelona and Argentina striker has been on the cover for FIFA for the last couple of years.

Messi is currently having one of the worst month’s of his career after loosing the Copa America trophy to Chile. He was also found guilty of tax evasion in Spain and was given a 21-month suspended sentence.

“James, Martial, Hazard, and Reus represent exciting, attacking football and epitomize the innovative play that fans can expect in FIFA 17,” EA Sports senior producer Nick Channon said. “We’re excited to see fans rally around their favorite players and see who they select as the cover star for the franchise and the footballer who will represent FIFA 17 globally.”

FIFA 17 will be released worldwide on September 29 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC gamers.
