NCAA requires removal of some women from FIFA 16

13 student-athletes risking their eligibility for collegiate athletics by being included in FIFA 16

Posted on

EA Sports has complied with the demand of NCAA to remove 13 female athletes from FIFA 16 due to college sporting rules.

These players are currently attending or likely to attend NCAA-sanctioned schools in the U.S. The NCAA has informed EA SPORTS that these 13 student-athletes would be risking their eligibility for collegiate athletics by being included in FIFA 16.

EA said in a statement: "We do not agree with this position. All rights were secured following standard protocol with national governing bodies and federations, and none of these NCAA student-athletes or potential student athletes were to be individually compensated by EA SPORTS for their inclusion in the game. We believe this decision denies these 13 athletes the opportunity to represent their countries in the game, but we have removed them from FIFA 16 to ensure there is no risk to their eligibility."

The list of players affected by the NCAA’s decision who will no longer appear in FIFA 16 includes Kadeisha Buchanan, Jessie Fleming, Ashley Lawrence, Janine Beckie, Rebecca Quinn, and Sura Yekka from Canada; Celia Jiménez from Spain; Tanya Samarzich, Greta Espinoza, Christina Murillo, Amanda Perez, Emily Alvarado, and Maria Sanchez from Mexico.
