Fifa 16

EA Sports had previously announced that it would include women's football for the first time in Fifa 16. EA's decision seemed to have come in the run-up to the women's World Cup held in Canada in June-July that received immense success. The US women's team won the 2015 tournament, while Japan settled for the second spot and England beat Germany to finish third.

In July, EA had announced that the game's box art would feature women football stars alongside Lionel Messi. Reports suggested that World Cup winner Alex Morgan would be seen on the US cover, while Canadian captain Christine Sinclair would feature on the box art to be released in Canada.
