Rich Mnisi adidas collection now available on FIFA 23: Here’s everything we know
Partnering with sportswear giant adidas, the South African designer seeks to promote love, self-love, and inclusivity, with a particular focus on celebrating LGBTQIA+ icons in the world of sports.
A Fashion Revolution in FIFA 23
Despite FIFA 23’s impending conclusion with the launch of EA Sports FC 24, Rich Mnisi’s collaboration with adidas has taken centre stage, bringing a fashion revolution to the gaming world.
The ‘Let Love Be Your Legacy’ collection is now available for gamers to experience and embrace on two of FIFA 23’s popular game modes: FIFA Ultimate Team and Volta.
Inspired by a Pride Campaign
The collection originated from a powerful pride campaign, initiated by Rich Mnisi, which aimed to highlight love, freedom of expression, and allyship.
The collaboration with adidas allowed the designer to pay homage to queer icons, past and present, who have made an impact in the realm of sports and beyond.
The “Love Unites” Jersey
One of the standout pieces in the collection is the “Love Unites” jersey, which gained recognition when it was donned by Orlando Pirates during the warm-up of the Nedbank Cup final in May 2023.
This vibrant and meaningful piece represents the essence of the collection, fostering a sense of unity and love within the sporting community.
Unlocking the Collection
Gamers can now access the ‘Let Love Be Your Legacy’ pack through two different avenues in FIFA 23. For FIFA Ultimate Team players, the pack can be unlocked via the Milestone Objectives, adding an extra layer of excitement to the gaming experience.
Additionally, in VOLTA Football, the pack awaits players through Seasonal Progression.
