Certain groupings of players have signed an even more exclusive NIL contract with EA Sports, signified by their status as an #EAAthlete, or EA Athlete. This group is a smaller group that is set to serve as brand ambassadors for the game and likely helps with marketing the game itself to the masses through social media promotions and likely in-area events.
