Voting for who will appear on the cover of FIFA 17 has now ended, with Marco Reus coming out on top.

Reus was able to overtake other contenders Anthony Martial, James Rodriguez, and Eden Hazard for the coveted spot, after more than 3.1 million votes were submitted to EA for the competition.

“I’m very honored to join a very distinguished group of footballers to appear on the cover of FIFA,” Reus said in a statement. “Most of all, I am humbled that the fans have chosen me, and I will strive to make them proud with my performance on the pitch.”


FIFA 17 will bring new changes to the game when it launches this fall, containing a story mode for the first time in series history. The mode, titled “The Journey,” will have players take the role of Alex Hunter as he attempts to join the Premiere League.

“For the first time ever in FIFA, live your story on and off the pitch as the Premier League’s next rising star, Alex Hunter. Play on any club in the Premier League, for authentic managers and alongside some of the best players on the planet. Experience brand new worlds in FIFA 17, all while navigating your way through the emotional highs and lows of The Journey.”

FIFA 17 launches on September 27th on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
