Watch: Wrexham AFC release launch video for FIFA 22
Wrexham AFC has declared that its “in the game” as it released a video to celebrate the launch of FIFA 22.
The Welsh football club has been included as one of the teams in the latest version of the video game franchise.
The video features players holding a special Wrexham AFC version of the game with the club’s badge emblazoned on it.
Happy launch day @EASPORTSFIFA! We're proud to say that when it comes to EA SPORTS, we're in the game.

It had previously been confirmed that Wrexham was to be one of the ‘Rest of the World’ teams alongside Cypriot side Apoel FC, Hunagarian club Ferencvárosi TC and Croatians, Hajduk Split.
These are few wild cards not included in leagues featured elsewhere, such as the Premier League and Ligue 1.
This is not the first video the club has put out about its inclusion in the game.
New owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have plugged Wrexham’s inclusion in FIFA ’22 – by emphasising that Wales isn’t in England.

“Our first full season as Wrexham owners has begun. Yet many people still don’t know where Wales is,” Rob McElhenney says.
“That’s right Rob. So we’re here with a little geography lesson,” Ryan Reynolds says.
“Many people think that Wales is in England. It is not Ryan. It is in a region known as Rest of the World,” Rob McElhenney says.
“Rest of the World is an important geographic region known for its random assorment of cultures, climates and football clubs.”
“If you are planning on visiting Rest of the World, please consider Wrexham, it’s a proud team honoured to be in Fifa 22.”

Shame about the game being morally bankrupt by pushing kids into gambling with their lootboxes. The game is rated 3 years and up and has gambling mechanics in it.
