New research shows that EA's FIFA soccer game is a "gateway drug" to attract new soccer fans in the United States according to data released by EA Sports.

Not only is the video game loved and played by soccer fans both young and old, but it proves to be an ideal way to introduce sports fans to the passion of the beautiful game, so they can see on television how these footballers play in real life (as well as hopefully encouraging fans to go see these players in person).
