Washington, D.C. (June 20, 2013) – D.C. United today announced that defender/midfielder Alain Rochat has been named to the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 13 Ultimate Team of the Week, which honors a select group of global players each week for their high level of play.
FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is the popular game mode within EA SPORTS FIFA that reflects the best recent real-world performances of the world’s best players. Over 3.4 million games of FIFA Ultimate Team are played daily, and each week, the world’s top performing players are selected to the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team of the Week and receive an “in form” item that increases the player’s attributes. Fans have the opportunity to collect Team of the Week players from in-game packs and then compete with those players on their FIFA Ultimate Team online against millions of other fans around the world on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Rochat, one of seven representatives from Major League Soccer this week, went the full 90 minutes in his debut start for the Black-and-Red in a 2-1 loss to Toronto FC on June 15. The Swiss international displayed his versatility with shifts at both left fullback and central midfield in the Eastern Conference clash. Rochat is the most recent addition to D.C. United, joining the squad on June 6 from Vancouver Whitecaps FC in exchange for a natural 2nd-round selection in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft and a conditional pick for 2016.
