Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk is the cover star of the Champions Edition.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard will be on the front cover of EA Sports' FIFA 20, which will be released on September 27.

While midfielders and forwards get most of the accolades, EA Sports is bucking that trend by recognizing the incredible season had by Liverpool's Dutch Defender Virgil van Dijk.

EA Sports revealed the mystery.

And FIFA are clearly aware of the expectation having featured the star pointing to his new club crest.

Jude Invitational as he is continuing to enjoy his major victory at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland on Sunday . The four-time major victor and No. 3 golfer in the world has won two PGA Tour events this year.

Making his first start in a Chelsea shirt, he impressed in their most recent pre-season friendly game, a 2-1 win over Barcelona in the final of the Rakuten Cup.

Eden Hazard has tipped Christian Pulisic to become one of the future stars of football following his arrival at Chelsea.

He has already become the first centre-back to feature on FIFA's front cover since Sol Campbell in 2000 and the first PFA victor in his position since John Terry in 2005. That team, named Piemonte Calcio, will still have the real players from Juventus including superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Both Virgil Van Dijk and Eden Hazard are set to feature in the game's key promotional material for the next installment, replacing Neymar, Kevin De Bruyne, and Paulo Dybala from FIFA 19.

EA Sports are yet to reveal who will be on the Ultimate Edition ahead of the game's release later in the year.

The Liverpool centre-half will only appear on the champions edition while the Belgian superstar's face will adorn the standard version of the game.
