Diary The New York Times I had a current problem between EA (Electronic Arts) and FIFA (International Football Association). EA Sports is paying a license for a long time so that their soccer games can be called FIFA.
However, the organization wants EA Sports to pay them double the amount, more than $1 billion every 4 years (the World Cup tournament). However, FIFA not only wants more money, but also more control over the games.

EA wants to sell NFTs in FIFA games and create various tournaments, which in turn will make money for a video game company. FIFA is said to be raising money because its president, Gianni Infantino, wants to create a larger global club tournament and plans to get all the parties involved in the World Cup every 3 years (instead of the current four).
So the FIFA game series can be renamed, but it can still use player names and likenesses. A few days ago, she extended her contract with FIFPro, which licenses the use of millions of faces and names of players from all over the world.
For reference, it is this license that allows EA to use the FIFA and FIFA World Cup trademark in the name of the game.
This will not affect other licenses for player names/similarities such as the recently renewed FIFPro license. https://t.co/j4mpCjjYNu
