Clint Dempsey to join Lionel Messi on cover of FIFA 15

Seattle Sounders fans know how to fill a stadium, and they know how to make an announcement, apparently.  To tell the world that Clint Dempsey would be on the cover of the new EA Sports FIFA 15 video game, fans unfurled a huge banner to fill an entire end zone of seats on Saturday, that pictured Dempsey’s face and the words “Dempsey is in the game,” playing off EA Sports’ tagline.

To see what the video game cover will look like, you can click on the picture link below from the Sounders’ original tweet. Since the Sounders’ jerseys are sponsored by XBox, there is also an alternate cover that will portray Dempsey in his men’s national team jersey.
