Train2Game News SpecialEffect Represented in Fifa 18


Electronic Arts have chosen SpecialEffect to be the first ever games charity to have an exclusive in-game FIFA 18 kit.

The kit went live in game on Friday 10 November, as a reward for a weekly objective in EA Sports FIFA Ultimate Team. 

SpecialEffect are a UK-based charity that provide custom-designed control setups for people with physical disabilities who want to enjoy video games. FIFA is one of the most popular games requested by people they help.

One young man that the charity supported, Chad, has spinal muscular atrophy that severely limits his movement, but he’s now able to play FIFA again using a custom setup that includes a mouth-controlled joystick. “I thought my gaming days were over,” he said, “but thanks to SpecialEffect I can now play FIFA in a different but novel way.”

The kit was launched at Wembley Stadium on 10 November.

Dr Mick Donegan, SpecialEffect Founder and CEO, said “We’re immensely grateful to EA for this wonderful gesture. For many years they’ve been major supporters of our work in levelling the playing field for people with physical disabilities, and the increase in global awareness of our work that the kit will bring is very much appreciated.”

“When I started the charity ten years ago, I never dreamed that we’d be honoured with our own kit in one of the most popular game series ever.”
