Press Row Podcast: FIFA troubles

By on @richgrisham

This week’s episode of the Press Row Podcast brings together a full panel to discuss FIFA – namely, EA’s relationship to the embattled global organization and the reaction to the recent announcement of the inclusion of women in this fall’s FIFA 16. To what extent should Electronic Arts re-evaluate its partnership with FIFA, considering the damning revelations of corruption and near-slave labor building World Cup stadiums? Should fans of the video game be happy that a dozen women’s national teams have been added for FIFA 16, or should they be unhappy that there’s not more that can be done with them? It’s a spirited debate that goes in several unexpected directions.
