Aussie superstar Sam Kerr will appear alongside Kylian Mbappé on the cover of this year's 'FIFA' title, marking the first time a female player has appeared on the cover for the long-running sporting franchise.
The pair will feature on the cover for the games Ultimate Edition, while Mbappé will feature on the standard edition of the game.
Kerr will feature on the standard cover in Australia and New Zealand as well as the standard edition available on Amazon.
Mbappé, who recently put an end to endless transfer rumours by committing to a lucrative long-term contract with PSG, is now sharing the spotlight with Chelsea star Sam Kerr.
“I’m thrilled to have been picked to be on the cover for the 3rd time, and I’m even more excited to share a cover honouring women’s football with a great player like Sam Kerr,” said Kylian Mbappé.
"As a huge fan of the game, I'm excited for the final FIFA and can't wait to see you all on the pitch."
This year's edition of the game is placing a heavy emphasis on women's football, reflecting the growing popularity of the sport and high viewing figures for the ongoing European Championship.
“Both Kylian and Sam are generational talents, and having them grace the covers of the final FIFA is a monumental moment not only for the franchise, but for EA SPORTS as a whole,” said David Jackson, VP Brand, EA SPORTS FC.
"FIFA 23 is our most innovative and feature-packed title ever and we’re energised to have two of football’s greatest players share their love of the game with fans around the world," he said.
This year's iteration of 'FIFA' will be the final 'FIFA' as we presently know it, after news broke in May that the governing body were ending their partnership with EA after nearly 30 years.
'FIFA 23' will be the final version of the 'FIFA' games as audiences currently know and love, with EA's take on the game, 'EA Sports FC', replacing 'FIFA' from 2023 onwards.
All the player likenesses and club licenses will remain with EA, but the 'FIFA' title is up for grabs, with 2K Games tipped among gaming journalists as the company most likely to attain the 'FIFA' brand.
'FIFA 23' will hit consoles in either late September or early October, and will feature a World Cup mode to tie into the men's tournament kicking off in December.
