One of the best examples of the popularity enjoyed by soccer player Megan Rapinoe, is the successful campaign organized by an amateur to ask EA to make her the protagonist of the cover of FIFA 20.
After the victory of his national team in the recent 2019 Women’s World Cup, and given his visibility on social networks, Ripone has become one of the favorite athletes of the fans. This motivated the fan Darren Holland to launch this petition to EA, after seeing a cover assembly made by another fan with Rapinoe as the protagonist. His proposal has achieved in just a few weeks more than 20,000 signatures, almost the number needed to deliver his proposal to the developer.
For now, FIFA 20 will feature this year with the images of the striker of Juventus Paulo Dybala, the star of Paris Saint-Germain Brazil Neymar and Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne. But if the developer listened to this request, and placed Rapinoe on the cover, she would be the second player to achieve it, after Alex Morgan, who shared a representative image with Lionel Messi for the US version of FIFA 16.
