A SCOTTISH women’s football club is set to appear in a major upcoming video game.

Glasgow City will be first women’s club from Scotland to appear in the inaugural EA Sports FC 24, which is the first instalment of the popular football game since EA ended its franchise with FIFA.

The team will feature alongside many of the top European clubs, with the game also having licences to the Barclay’s Women's Super League, as well as the top flight Women’s leagues in France, Spain and Germany.

In addition, the game has the licence to the US National Women's Soccer League.

Alongside the four European leagues, Glasgow City will be one of many other playable top teams from Europe who compete in the UEFA Women's Champions League.
