Clint Dempsey joins Lionel Messi on FIFA 15 cover

On Saturday afternoon, EA Sports announced the cover athletes for FIFA 15 in Canada and the United States.

Joining Argentina and Barcelona star Lionel Messi on the cover of this year’s edition of the game will be United States men’s national team captain and Seattle Sounders standout Clint Dempsey.

Interestingly enough, EA Sports decided to place Dempsey on the cover in his USA kit rather than the Sounders uniform.

The decision was likely made for the soccer fans who are still riding the high of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, because the USA bomb pop kits are as recognizable as you can get. In the Sounders uniform, the cover may not have caught some people’s eyes.

The Sounders kit also features a prominent sponsor from Xbox, so PlayStation wouldn’t want to feel left out.
