March 16th saw the release of the full FIFA STREET 4 game (EA Sports) featuring Messi on the front cover, will come out on the market, we are proud to see the Streetkings Team playing in the game amongst the likes of Manchester United, FC Barcelona.
It all started during the Nike Panna KO tour in 2005. EA Sports approached Edward as he was performing in the tour. EA Sports wanted him to do the motion capture for the very first Fifa street. Edje agreed and was sent to the EA Sports HQ in Canada. In the first and second edition of FIFA Street Edward had his own character as one of the first Streetsoccer artists worldwide.
In the latest version of FIFA Street Ed also has his own character and Streetkings, the company that Edward van Gils founded, have their own team starring Edward “Edje” van Gils, Issy Hitman, Achie and others. This is the result of their status in the world of street football. The Streetkings All Star team is seen as the best street footballers in the game.
Edward van Gils: ‘’Im proud having a character again, but what I’m even more proud of the fact that we have a Streetkings team in the game. That’s a result of all these years of hard work and effort.”
