EA issued an apology after mistakenly using the Soldier's Song as Northern Ireland's anthem within the game, instead of God Save The Queen. Public Relations head Shaun White said:
|| At EA Sports, we pride ourselves on delivering rich and authentic videogame experiences. We sincerely apologise for this error.
The apology was welcomed by Northern Irish Culture, Arts and Leisure Minister Gregory Campbell who said:
|| Any apology on this matter is most welcome. Obviously there's has been a lack of knowledge on the makers' part and hopefully it will be changed as soon as possible.
