Multi-national publishing behemoth EA is facing the wrath of The Imps after a gaffe in the recently released FIFA 11 saw League Two team Lincoln City hitting the pitch with last year’s strip and sponsor on show.
“We are aware of this error and we apologise to the club, sponsor and fans and we are working towards a fix featuring new club sponsor, GoCar,” EA PR man Shaun White told This Is Lincolnshire.
In fact, EA’s response to the situation has impressed Lincoln City chief executive Dave Roberts.
“While we are extremely disappointed for our new shirt sponsor GoCar, we have been impressed with the speed of the response from EA Sports. We understand they can provide an online update for the game, so it should be corrected.”
