FIFA 14 Updated Cover – Gareth Bale In Real Madrid Shirt Replaces Spurs!

Fifa 14 Cover

The publishers of FIFA 14, Electronic Arts, have updated the box art of the upcoming football simulation title to feature Gareth Bale in a Real Madrid shirt.

The 24-year-old was formerly depicted in the colours of Tottenham Hotspur on the front cover of the game, the club he left for Madrid in a world-transfer record deal earlier this summer.

The change means there are two La Liga stars depicted on FIFA 14 s cover, with Lionel Messi of Barcelona starring alongside the Wales international.

For the first time ever in the long-running FIFA series, there will be no Premier League stars represented on the box art of the popular game.

The change makes a lot of sense considering the necessity to keep things current, while EA had previously ruled out dropping Bale as their cover star following his switch to the Spanish capital.

Bale joined Madrid for a fee rumoured to have been around the 85 million mark, making him football’s most expensive player.

And though the cover of FIFA 14 has now been updated to feature him in the colours of his new club, fans can still see the former Southampton ace in a Spurs shirt in the official demo, which launched on PS3 consoles today.

fifa 14 is set for release in America on September 24th and in Europe on the 27th, and will launch on old and current gen consoles PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One.
