Adding Women Into the Fifa Game Series Is Long Overdue

Step forward EA Sports. On the release of Fifa 16 - which will be the 23rd version of the game to feature in the series, excluding any of the 'street' and World Cup editions - there will be an option for players to take control of women's teams. The most baffling aspect of the announcement was that it was done at a time when the Fifa organisation, entirely separate from the game series, is coming under fire over allegations of corruption by some of the most senior officials.
