I can guarantee than maybe 5 percent of you have ever heard of Swindon Town Football Club, but the team’s partnership with EA FIFA 10 should make them a powerhouse in the Manchester City sense sooner rather than later.

Football and video games have a celebrated history. Who can forget seeing Thierry Henry running up and down the pitch with the Dreamcast logo on his chest when he played for Arsenal?
“Superdepor” also had the Dreamcast logo for a bit.
