The possible transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus would force FIFA 19 to change several aspects of the game, from images up to The Journey
In the last hours the soccer market has been shaken by the hypothesis of transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus. According to the Spanish TV program "Jugones" the transfer would be done, the bianconeri would pay the player 100 million to Real Madrid and Cristiano would earn 30 million for the next 4 years.
A change of shirt of this magnitude would have consequences not only in soccer but, as reported by the portal specialized in video games EveryEye, also in the world of video games, and in particular in FIFA 2019. As happened last year, Cristiano Ronaldo had been chosen by the developers of Electronic Arts as the "face" for the cover of the soccer videogame par excellence, with a lot of material already released to the press. Up to here nothing bad if it were not that all the images used to sponsor the new chapter of FIFA show CR7 with the jersey of Real Madrid. An eventual transfer to Turin would therefore force EA Sports to entirely revise its marketing campaign for the launch of FIFA 2019.
FIFA 19 changes face with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus
At the moment on the main e-commerce, in the online teaser videos, and in the images that have announced the official launch of FIFA 19 the company has always used the photos of CR7 with the camiseta blanca. But what will happen with Cristiano's eventual move to Juventus? Simple, in that case FIFA would have to change its cover image and the whole marketing campaign to adapt to the market coup.
CR7 in the FIFA 18 version was also the co-star of The Journey feature, basically the section of the game where we take a young budding footballer and lead him to become one of the greatest talents of international soccer. Most likely Cristiano is also present in the new version of The Journey present on FIFA 19. This will be a bigger problem for EA Sports in case of Ronaldo's transfer to Turin, because it may require changes to the game. And given the timing it will not be easy to do it.
Finally, the comical aspect is that to sponsor the new FIFA 2019 EA Sports in recent months had decided to use the image of Cristiano Ronaldo's reverse goal just against Juventus in the Champions League. FIFA will therefore have to change even its official trailer in case of transfer of CR7 in our league.
