EA Sports has announced today that Barclay's Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur will join Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle, and Manchester City in becoming "official partners" with the publisher.

As the BPL gains popularity here in the United States, Spurs, as they're known, will be able expand their relationship with their fans both in the States and the rest of the world.  It also means that a special Tottenham Hotspur FIFA 13 sleeve will be downloadable from their website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com.  

Honestly, as far as I can tell, this is more a corporate synergy type deal than anything that will dramatic impact fans of either the club or the FIFA franchise besides more detailed 3D renders of Spurs players for future FIFA games, exclusive videos, the prediction of Spurs matches using the FIFA engine and the like.

Oh, and also, the EA Sports trailer will be at Spurs home games so fans can play EA Sports titles.

Visit FIFA 13 on Facebook and Twitter.  The game hits stores on September 11.
