Electronic Arts Inc. (NasdaqGS:EA) has announced a launch date of September 26 this year for EA SPORTS FC™ MOBILE, which will feature "intuitive gameplay controls that will introduce a new level of immersion to The World's Game on mobile devices." Real Madrid winger Vini Jr. will make his debut as the first-ever cover star for EA SPORTS FC MOBILE, and players will "experience his authentic running style" through the game's "True Player Personality." Vini Jr. commented:

"I'm excited to be featured as the cover star for EA SPORTS FC MOBILE and look forward to sharing this excitement with fans worldwide. Football is more than just a sport, and to play a part in inviting more people into this celebration is a dream."

Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE:VSTO) has announced a rebranding with a new name, The Kinetic Group, effective following the planned spinoff of its Outdoor Products business. According to the press release, The Kinetic Group "will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the stock ticker "HUNT," and the brand will feature original logo artwork of a North American ram." Jason Vanderbrink, Sporting Products President and CEO, explained:

"The performance of our products is so often measured in energy on target. Kinetic energy is the force behind our world-class brands and exhibits the spirit of the 4,500 American workers who represent our company. The process of developing a new company name and identity has been exciting and inspiring. We're all proud of the brands we represent and the products we make in our four American factories. Harnessing the enthusiasm of our employees throughout this process was pivotal to coming up with the best name and logo as we move closer to becoming a standalone company."

Spain Advances to Women's World Cup Semifinals, and Bautista to Sign One-Day Contract to Retire as a Toronto Blue Jay

The Associated Press reports that Spain has advanced to the Women's World Cup semifinals for the very first time following their 2-1 victory over the Netherlands in Wellington, New Zealand today. A 5.0 magnitude earthquake shook the city one hour before kickoff, but did not appear to shake 19-year-old Salma Paralluelo, who went on to score late in extra time to earn Spain the win. Spain's coach Jorge Vilda said:

"We were so concentrated. Yes, it was a middle (moderate) shake, an earthquake, but not today. The earthquake was the victory of Spain."

Sportsnet reports that right-fielder Jose Bautista will sign a one-day contract so he can retire as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays ahead of his addition to the club's Level of Excellence on Saturday. In doing so, Bautista won't have played his last game in the majors as a Blue Jay, but will retire as one. In an interview for the book The Big 50: Toronto Blue Jays by Shi Davidi (who also wrote the article), Bautista said:

"I wish I could have retired playing my last game as a Blue Jay. But you can't get everything that you want in life. That's one of those things for me."
