Sam Kerr made herstory as first woman to feature on FIFA Ultimate Edition cover
The cover of FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition was unveiled featuring Sam Kerr and Kylian Mbappé on the cover. Whilst other female players have appeared on local editions of the game series, this moment marks the first time a woman has featured on the global cover of EA Sports’ FIFA videogame and the first time a queer player has been featured. Sam celebrated the moment with an Instagram post:
“From playing as a kid, to being in the game and now on the global cover! It’s a dream come true.” Presenting your #FIFA23 Cover Stars:@samkerr1 and @KMbappe ⭐️⭐️ Two phenomenal forces up front. One ultimate strike partnership. See the full reveal on July 20 ➡ https://t.co/yjXnlCteDR pic.twitter.com/oOWyqoqBzB — EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) July 18, 2022
Sam publicly came out as LGBTQI in an Instagram post last August. We’re so pleased that 2022 is providing some much-needed visibility and recognition in sport for women and LGBTQI people.
