Micah Richards Scores for Arsenal in FIFA 12 Gameplay Video

Manchester City and EA Sports announced a deal in Vancouver this past weekend. It’ll mean that the entire Manchester City squad will have their full facials featured in the game. Plus, FIFA 12 will include the new Eithad Stadium, exclusive Man City match simulations and an exclusive club specific pack design.

To kick off the event, Manchester City visited EA’s offices in Vancouver where defender Micah Richards play FIFA 12 against Wes Knight of the Vancouver Whitecaps.

      I dont think they will add a tottenham stadium till they get a new stadium or renovate White Hart Lane

        all they need is the license to do it. its not really by choice, they have to get permission from someone to do it, god knows who though

    The trailer is probably completely accurate in the amount of playing time James Milner will get all season. Nice work EA Sports.

    Joking aside, looks good… for a joint City advert. No Tevez?
