Football legend Zlatan Ibrahimović accuses EA Sports, FIFA of fraud

Professional Footballer and Swedish icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic has raised questions on the use of his name and face in popular EA Sports title FIFA.

The AC Milan star has revealed that he was never asked for permission for the same and that he is unaware how FIFPro, the professional body representing the professional players, can authenticate the use of his image rights without his prior approval and/or intimation.

Zlatan has also hinted at a potential investigation on the fact that EA Sports has been profiting on his image rights for all these years without going through the right legal process, according to him.

This is similar to a July 26, 2020 report from David Ornstein that iterated that experienced manager Russell Slade along with a team data lawyers and experts have initiated a legal action named Project Red Card. The project has over 400 players on board and aims at suing gaming, betting and data-processing firms for use of their performance data without permission over the last 6 years in a suit that could be worth millions.
