EA SPORTS has announce Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus as the cover star of FIFA 17. Reus saw off Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard and James Rodriguez in an open public vote, after over 3.1 million votes were cast by fans across the world.
Reus is a highly-decorated winger, and is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous attackers in Europe. Reus was named Footballer of the Year in Germany in 2012, and has 29 appearances with the German National Team. Reus was also recently named captain of Dortmund, and will be wearing the captain’s armband in the coming season.
It is incredible to see how fans get behind their favorite player – Marco plays for a great club, is really fun to watch, and he is very popular in FIFA Ultimate Team, so it makes a lot of sense that the fans picked him,” said Nick Channon, Senior Producer for EA SPORTS FIFA. “Reus joins an elite group of international football superstars who have appeared on the cover of FIFA over the years.
“I’m honored to join a very distinguished group of footballers to appear on the cover of FIFA,” said Reus. “Most of all I am humbled that the fans have chosen me, and I will strive to make them proud with my performance on the pitch.”
