Newcastle United has extended its partnership with EA SPORTS, with the publisher continuing as the club's gaming partner for the next two years.
The deal with the company will see a number of benefits for fans of the Magpies. They include a special Newcastle United version of the FIFA 13 cover which fans will be able to download for free when the game launches later this year, while the EA SPORTS Dugout will visit the Sports Direct Arena during key fixtures this season, allowing fans to compete against one another.
Like last year, there will be a Pro Player Tournament at the training ground as the quest to find the best FIFA player at the club continues, EA SPORTS will also produce match simulation video content during the season and ask fans to upload their best goals.
FIFA 13 is set to launch in late September.
