Electronic Arts Statement on NFL Partnership

March 10, 2020 GMT

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 10, 2020--

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) today issued the following statement regarding the NFL-EA SPORTS partnership:

“EA SPORTS is the exclusive publisher of NFL simulation games, and our partnership with the NFL and NFLPA remains unchanged. Our agreements have always allowed for non-exclusive development of non-simulation games on various platforms. Our commitment to NFL fans, which spans almost 30 years, has never been stronger, and we’re having our biggest year yet. Madden NFL 20 is the most successful game ever in the franchise, and new modes like Superstar KO and our Madden NFL esports broadcasts are growing the fan base. We’ll be building on that momentum with more new and different experiences, on more platforms and with new ways to play, in the years to come.”
