Gary Neville’s balls: FIFA 14’s Ultimate Team ambassador revealed

FIFA Gary Neville

Oh good, another football story! EA Sports have announced that Gary Neville, a man who is apparently good at football based on the fact that he’s a current England coach, is their “ambassador” for FIFA 14‘s Ultimate Team mode.

What this actually means is that he’ll be writing a bi-weekly column on the official FIFA 14 website, in which he’ll be investigating the latest HOT TOPICS in the Premier League. You can read the first one here. I’m going to guess they mean fortnightly, considering bi-weekly can mean “twice a week” or “every two weeks”, and I suspect he’s a bit too busy to write them a column twice a week. At least, I’d hope so.

As has been previously announced, he’ll also be appearing in the FIFA Ultimate Team Legends content… which is exclusive to the Xbox One version of the game. And the PC version is going to be worse than the Xbox One and PS4 versions anyway, as it’s not using the shiny new Ignite engine.

FIFA 14 is due out on 26 September, and there’s a demo due out on 10 September.

  • Tim McDonald

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      ‘Gary Neville, a man who is apparently good at football based on the fact that he’s the current England coach’… well this is awkward, he isn’t the current England coach and never has been. He’s probably good at football based on the fact that he has 400 appearances for Manchester United and captained them for 5 years… I dunno… I’m just speculating… but I think I might be onto something
