FIFA 21 adds murdered teenage footballer 15 years later

In a touching tribute, EA has added Queens Park Rangers hopeful Kiyan Prince to the FIFA 21 roster, 15 years on the day after he was stabbed to death trying to break up a fight at school. Kiyan had signed up as a QPR youth player in 2004, and the club had planned to sign him as a professional.

As a tribute to keep the memory of Prince alive, who would’ve turned 30 in November 2022, he’s now available as a 30 year-old player for QPR in FIFA 21. In a video by the BBC, freelance illustrator Chris Scalf, who designed the model for Prince, said he felt “confident, but not confident enough until I get the final acknowledgement from the people it really matters to,” referring to the model having been designed together with Prince’s family and friends. His play style and skills are based on assessments by his former fellow players and coaches.
