EA Sports FC is a bit of a rubbish name, isn’t it?
Doesn’t really roll off the tongue…
New FIFA thinking the name alone will make it the best game is a bit naive though. Most of the naming licenses will remain in EA’s game, and they have years of experience.
“EA Sports FC is a bit of a ridiculous name, isn’t it?
