GAME enlists Premiership footballers for FIFA 13 launch

Newcastle and West Ham fans are in for a treat.

The UK’s leading video games retailer GAME has revealed that both clubs will be lending one of their top stars for the launch of FIFA 13, which finally arrives in the UK tomorrow.

Newcastle’s Metre Centre GAME store will from 8pm tonight (Thursday September 27th) be welcoming defender Ryan Taylor who will be at hand to sign Limited Edition versions of the game, as well as to try his hand at it in front of the crowd.

Famed footy trickster Jamie Knight will also be there, and onlookers will be in with a chance of winning prizes including a PS3 and PlayStation Vita.

Meanwhile, daan saaf West Ham captain Kevin Nolan will be popping along to GAME’s new flagship Westfield Stratford store at 3pm tomorrow (Friday September 28th) to mingle with fans and sign copies of the game.

Attendees at both events will have the chance to win a one-off attempt at beating the footballers at FIFA 13 in front of the crowd.

Even if you can’t make it to either store, GAME is hosting 294 midnight openings across the UK, with doors opening around 11:45pm tonight.

“FIFA 13 is going to be a smash hit with fans,” marketing director The features are completely revolutionary and make this installment bigger, better and more intuitive than ever before! 294 GAME stores will be opening at midnight for the launch and we’ve put our best squad forward to kick off the FIFA 13 season in style.”
