This partnership sees Xbox beginning a "grassroots gaming campaign" which is set to bring yet-undisclosed "exciting experiences" for football fans.

In the meanwhile, if you're interested in playing sports games on Xbox, including football games like the FIFA franchise, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate continues to be a great option. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes regular Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for PC and EA Play, which means that EA games always join the subscription sometime after launch.

Some were thinking the whole of england 😆
Smart move. It makes Xbox seem like more of a UK-friendly brand than PlayStation. The next step is to communicate the value proposition of Game Pass to the typical middleaged game console buyer in the UK; the type who only buys a console for football games (and other mainstream games, like CoD, GTA, etc).
