Usain Bolt Might Be Added to FIFA 19 as the Fastest Player in the Game

If Bolt is signed by the Central Coast Mariners he'll automatically be included in the next major update, but could be added as a free agent.

FIFA 19 Ultimate Team players on the lookout for a new super fast player to scare defenders might soon be able to get a Usain Bolt card. According to an EA source speaking to Fox Sports Asia, Bolt will be added to FIFA 19 if the Central Coast Mariners sign him, but he could also be included in the game's Career Mode if they don't.

Usain Bolt is currently playing with the Central Coast Mariners, but hasn't been picked up by the club yet. The former superstar sprinter recently played in a trial match for the Australian A-League side and scored twice.

"If Usain is picked up by the Central Coast Mariners then he will automatically be included in the Winter update or the next major update, but if he isn't listed then he might be included as a free agent," a source from EA Sports told Fox Sports Asia.

While there are already some very fast players in FIFA 19, it looks as though Bolt would eclipse them all. "Yes, he will also be the fastest player in the game," added the EA Sports source.

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
