Johan Cruijff finally gets the appreciation he deserves in FIFA 20

Johan Cruijff’s player ticket in FIFA 20 finally has a rating that suits him. After having ‘only’ 94 out of 100 points for a long time, developer EA has given the Dutchman an upgrade. Cruijff now has 96 points and is hardly inferior to legends Pele and Maradona.


He is considered one of the best footballers ever, but in FIFA, according to many people, he did not get the appreciation he deserved. When Johan Cruijff received only 94 points from EA in FIFA 19, Esporter Koen Weijland decided to take action. He started a petition and campaigned to raise the player who died in 2016 to 98 in the game so that he would be equal to other legendary players. Pele and Maradona had a too high rating with 98 and 97 points, according to Koen Weijland.

EA has now updated the Cruijff player card in FIFA 20 to 96 points, which finally gives him the appreciation he deserves. Weijland is happy, Cruijff is always mentioned in the same breath as Maradona and Pele, so the gap to the two cannot be that big. The younger generations must know that he was really of the same order. ”

Johan Cruyff Moet 98 Rated Zijn In Fifa20!!

Cruyff 96 is enough

Weijland received help in his campaign from sports marketing agency 2Basics. Kevin Loos from 2Basics explains that it was not just about raising the player ticket, We found it particularly interesting to draw attention to footballer Johan Cruijff again through the campaign. Given the media attention that our campaigns have generated, we have certainly succeeded! ”

Whether the campaign contributed to EA’s decision to upgrade Cruijff’s card, Loos doesn’t dare to say, I don’t know exactly, but it’s fresh and right that his player card is now 96 instead of 94. ” The question of whether there will be another campaign to get Cruijff to 98 still seems logical. “As far as I’m concerned, there won’t be a new campaign,” says Weijland. “We made the news, but you don’t have to do something like that again.”
