Agencies line up for EA Sports brief

Agencies received RFIs from the games developer this week. 

EA Sports has worked with Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam in the past to create ads including "Play beautiful" to promote Fifa 16 in September 2015.

It is owned by Electronic Arts, which reported net revenue of $1.2bn for the three months to 31 December 2016. 

Publicis Media handles EA Sports’ global media business, which is reportedly worth £80m. Arena Media previously worked on the account. The brand spent £1.6m on UK advertising in 2015. 

EA Sports did not respond to a request for comment.
