Ibrox will feature as a playable stadium in a FIFA title for the first time since the 1990s after Rangers announced a multi-year partnership with EA SPORTS.

The partnership will see the gaming company becoming the exclusive official video game partner of the club.

An announcement was made by Rangers on Tuesday evening.

Fans of the football game franchise have long called for the stadium to be featured.

Rangers have indicated that they will also unveil several esports initiatives in the coming months.

Rangers’ commercial and marketing director James Bisgrove said the partnership would allow the club to “fully enter” the esports space.

“This is a truly exciting partnership for the club, and I think it speaks volumes for the standing Rangers has on the international stage that such a recognisable brand like EA SPORTS FIFA were so eager to enter into a partnership with the club,” he said.

“The 3D head scans of the first team and of Ibrox are set to take place in the coming weeks, and we canā€™t wait to see these launched in a future release of EA SPORTS FIFA 23.

“The world of esports is growing at unprecedented levels, and this partnership will allow us to fully enter this space with a meaningful strategy and strong partner in the sector.ā€

James Salmon, marketing director at EA SPORTS FIFA, said the company is “thrilled” by the partnership with Rangers.

“Weā€™re thrilled to have Rangers join the EA SPORTS family,” said Salmon.

ā€œThis partnership will enable us to continue to deliver authentic and comprehensive interactive football experiences to Rangers fans in FIFA 23 and beyond.ā€

EA SPORTS FIFA 23 will be available worldwide on September 30.
