Update: American soccer star Clint Dempsey has been added to the cover joining Argentinian Lionel Messi for the cover of FIFA 15.
The Seattle Sounders footballer is making his first appearance on a cover for the series in a series of regional cover reveals EA will be making in the coming weeks.
The two different covers for Xbox One and PS4 have slight variance as the former shows Dempsey in the Xbox sponsored Seattle Sounders outfit. PS4's version shows the star in his US Men's National Team (USMNT) garb that was worn during the US' stint in the World Cup.
Original Story: EA has announced that Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi has won the right to be cover athlete for the third year in a row.
Not all is lost for Messi after losing to Germany in the World Cup finals as his relationship with EA as EA SPORTS Football Ambassador continues to grow for his 4th cover appearance, but not without good reason. Messi was team captain for Argentina in their World Cup finals run scoring 4 goals and winning the Golden Ball for best overall player.
FIFA 15 is set to release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 23rd.
