For the first time, the 2016 FIFA video game box covers will feature two female soccer stars. The athletes who will appear on the front of the FIFA game are Alex Morgan and Christine Sinclair.

There are two versions of the 2016 FIFA video game being released. On the United States version there will be an image of Alex Morgan, who plays a Forward position with the U.S team. The Canadian version will feature the captain of host nation Canada, Christine Sinclair.

This groundbreaking accomplishment for females and female athletes is large step in the right direction for equality. With this powerful stance in athletic progression, the FIFA games will continue to feature both men and women. The Australian 2016 FIFA cover will feature Steph Catley; more covers will follow this video game format.
