EA Sports confirmed the news on Monday that Ronaldo would take the coveted front cover spot on their brand new game, set to be released on September 29.

Aaron McHardy, Senior Producer for the company said: “The world’s best player has helped fuel the biggest leap forward on the pitch that we’ve ever delivered. We are extremely excited to partner with Cristiano – working with him we learned a lot about his unique play style and what makes him so special.
