“It is an incredible honour to be one of the first women featured on the cover of EA Sports Fifa,” said Morgan.
“I know people all over the world play this game and I’m really excited that Fifa 2016 is putting such an important spotlight on women’s soccer.”
Until now only men’s teams have featured in the game, which was first released in 1993.
However, 12 international women’s teams will now be playable, including England, USA and Canada.
In England the game’s cover sees new Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson alongside Messi after he beat Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Thibaut Courtois in a public vote.

FIFA 2016, the upcoming football video game from EA Sports, had recently announced that FC Barcelona star and Argentine captain Lionel Messi will be gracing its international covers.

And now, for the first time in FIFA game history, the company has announced that Messi will be sharing space with women athletes on the game’s covers in the US, Australia and Canada.

The women athletes are Alex Morgan, who plays as a forward in US Women’s National Team; Christine Sinclair, captain of the Canadian Women’s National Team, and Stephanie Catley of Australian Women’s National Team. They will be in the respective home covers of FIFA 16 along with Messi.

The Australian game cover will also have a mystery athlete along with Messi.

“It is an incredible honour to be one of the first women featured on the cover of EA SPORTS FIFA,” said Morgan.

“I’m thrilled that EA SPORTS is celebrating female athletes in FIFA 16. To be featured in the game and to promote women’s soccer with Alex is really special and another exciting step for women in sports,” said Sinclair.

Players in FIFA 16 will, for the first time, have female players as EA Sports has included Women’s National Teams from 12 countries who will be playing in the Kick Off, Offline Tournament and Online Friendly game modes.

“As soon as we knew Women’s National Teams were joining FIFA 16, we immediately recognized that Christine and Alex would be the perfect cover athletes based on their accomplishments and what they represent for their respective countries and the sport of women’s soccer,” said David Pekush, senior manager of North America Marketing for EA Sports.

FIFA 16 will be released on 22 September on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
