Robin van Persie becomes FUT ICON in FIFA22

EA SPORTS officially introduced Robin van Persie ‘aka the flying Dutchman’ to FIFA22 as a FUT ICON. As a FUT ICON, he has joined his in-game character, just like Johan Cruyff, Pelé, Diego Maradona, Ruud Gullit and Ruud van Nistelrooy already did.

To launch the official campaign in The Netherlands, EA SPORTS created a Van Persie branded tram for his hometown Rotterdam. The tram mainly runs through the center on various lines and drives past the Kuip during Feyenoord matches.

During the presence of this campaign, his son Shaqueel and Dutch YouTuber Qucee unveiled the tram to Van Persie. “I am very honored and excited to unveil my very own FUT ICON tram. Thank you, EA Sports FIFA, for this cool gesture.” Van Persie posted on his social media.
