A simulation of the 2022 FIFA World Cup is to be released this year in the United States, a move that has been hailed as a step towards the 2022 World Cup.
The Football Association of Ireland (Faisalabad) said on Monday that a simulator version of the game would be made available in the US.
The game, titled FIFA World Trophy Simulator, was developed by the University of North Carolina’s football simulation project, which is funded by the Faisalabadi family of Qatar.
“We are thrilled that the FCA is bringing the World Trophy Simulation to the United Kingdom,” said Simon Lister, chairman of the Faux Sports Association, the company behind the simulation.
The FCA had previously released a video version of FIFA World Football.
“This is the first time a major sport simulation has been made available for the UK, and will be a fantastic addition to the country’s sports calendar,” said Lister.
The simulation is part of a larger effort by the organisers to create a sports calendar in the UK that includes the 2018 World Cup, the 2020 Commonwealth Games and the 2020 European Championships.
