One of the feel good stories of EURO 2016 is at long last making their way to FIFA.
Per The Football Association of Iceland, EA and the association have agreed on an arrangement that will bring Gylfi Sigurðsson and the Icelandic men’s national team to FIFA 18. As some may recall, the two parties couldn’t come to terms a year ago, culminating in Iceland being left out of FIFA 17.
“I am very happy with this result and consider it good news for everyone that plays the game in Iceland, and really around the world,” KSÍ chairman Guðni Bergsson said in a statement. “I think this is very good marketing for Icelandic football, fun for our supporters, and of course, the players themselves.”
The KSÍ added that a special edition of the game only available in Iceland would be for sale beginning September 29. It will showcase a custom cover featuring the national team’s badge.
