The recent launch of Playfish’s EA SPORTS FIFA Superstars was a great success and the game is proving to be a big hit worldwide. We are especially pleased to be able to bring the beautiful game of football to Facebook and to Playfish fans everywhere – especially just as the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa has gotten under way.
To celebrate the release of the game, Playfish hosted a FIFA Superstars “friendly” – a spirited football match featuring several members of the London media at a pitch in Battersea Park. The teams hit the pitch wearing exclusive FIFA Superstars blue and white kit made especially for the match.
At kick off, Team White came out with guns blazing and shots hitting the mark, building a quick lead over Team Blue.
Though down, but definitely not out, Team Blue found itself on the short end of a 7-2 score at the end of the 20-minute mark.
In a lively second half, an undaunted Team Blue stepped up the pace, outscoring Team White 5-3.
Alas, it was too little too late and Team White ultimately prevailed 10-8.
Nicely done, lads! And a special congratulations to Michael Sawh of Team White, who was awarded Man of the Match.
With the match over, but players still hungry for more football, everyone headed to a nearby pub for FIFA Superstars demos from members of the game’s production team. Playfishers Henrique Olifiers, John Earner, Raf Keustermans, Andy Watson and Tom Sarris were on hand to provide our special guests with valuable tips for claiming ultimate victory in FIFA Superstars. In all, it was a great afternoon and a fun way to kick off FIFA Superstars!
LONG LIVE FOOTBALL! LONG LIVE FIFA SUPERSTARS!
