In addition, on the FIFA World Facebook page you can win signed BVB shirts and 2x2 VIP tickets for the match against Bayern Munich on 4 April 2015.

What is FIFA World?
EA SPORTS FIFA World has been designed by the award-winning development team from EA Canada and has beginner-level Gameplay, FIFA Ultimate Team, and live content, and includes more than 16,000 players and 600 clubs from over 30 officially licensed leagues.  Fans can connect with their team and their friends like never before, FIFA World always has something new to offer.

There are three different control modes available. For experienced FIFA fans and PC gamers there are traditional keyboard and gamepad controls, while FIFA beginners can easily learn the new mouse-based controls. Football fans can lead their teams to victory in online seasons or put together their own Ultimate Team and play against friends and the community in online/offline seasons as well as special tournaments.

To play FIFA World all you need is a PC or laptop with a broadband Internet connection. High end devices are not necessary since EA Sports FIFA World was developed for laptops and PCs with minimum hardware requirements.
