The Portuguese giants, SL Benfica, confirmed that they have reached an agreement to extend their current partnership with EA Sports ahead of the FIFA 22 release.
After the announcement, Domingos Soares de Oliveira , CEO of SL Benfica stated: “It is natural that two companies that are betting on technology as the engine for the development of their activities are kept together. This renewal demonstrates the belief in the value of Benfica by leading global partners in their sectors.“
