- Best-selling computer game uses likenesses of footballers
- Players want to know if entitled to proceeds from game
Several of the world’s most recognisable players including Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gareth Bale have questioned the right of football’s governing body and Fifpro to sell their likenesses for use in a best-selling video game. It could lead to legal action being taken on their behalf.
Fifa 21 – the 28th edition of a series estimated to have sold more than 300 million copies – was released in October featuring Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé as its cover star and featuring more than 7,000 players, 700 teams, 90 stadiums and 30 leagues.
