With every FIFA game release, we get to see new players taking the center on the game’s cover and this year is no different. The cover players for FIFA 23 include Paris St-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Chelsea’s Sam Kerr. This news was announced in a recent official tweet by EA where the developers even mentioned that a full reveal is incoming.

This will mark Mbappe’s third time as a FIFA cover star, and the first time a FIFA game has featured a female player. Sam Kerr, an Australian professional football player who plays as a striker for Chelsea in the FA Women's Super League is the first female to ever appear on the global cover of the FIFA football game.

The standard edition of the game will have two different covers, featuring either Kylian Mbappe or Sam Kerr. On the other hand, the cover for the Ultimate edition will be shared by both the players.

Apart from the cover player announcement, EA even dropped a roughly 20-second-long teaser. While the teaser gives away nothing, the planned full reveal will probably dive deeper into all the new features, stadiums, teams and more.

The full reveal of FIFA 23 will transpire on YouTube at 5 pm GMT on 20th July, so mark your calendars. Chances are that the developers might even treat fans with a release date while also subtly revealing pre-order and price details. That said, these remain mere speculations and we will have to wait till the final announcement by EA themselves.

FIFA 23 will be the last game by the company and even though EA will renounce the right to publish the game under the FIFA banner, it will still possess the license for more than 19,000 players, 700 teams, over 100 stadiums, and 30 football leagues including LaLiga, Premier League, the MLS, Serie A, and more.

Furthermore, EA also owns licenses letting the publisher use official players, teams, leagues, and stadiums. And that's everything about who the cover players of FIFA 23 will be.
