FIFA 14 out today, and you can print a box cover for your club

FIFA 14 is in shops across the country -- and you can customise your game box with your team's players, thanks to a printable download.

Long-lived footie franchise FIFA gets its annual update today, with FIFA 14 in shops across the country -- and you can customise your physical copy with your team's players.

Maker EA Sports has made PDFs of custom covers available to download on its website, so you can print, cut out and slide into the box to make FIFA 14 all about the club you support. Messi and Bale? No way, I want Massimo Luongo and Wes Foderingham.

If you're not fortunate enough to support the mighty Swindon Town, you can choose from custom covers for these other teams too: Barcelona, Everton, Aston Villa, Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool, Newcastle, Southampton, Wycombe Wanderers, Leyton Orient and the Ireland national team.

"Your FIFA 14 club sleeve PDF is set to print using CMYK colours at 300 dpi (dots per inch)," EA Sports explains. "This is standard high resolution production printing. We recommend you use printer settings which your printer is capable of managing successfully.

"Your FIFA 14 sleeve is printed on 170gsm gloss art paper. We recommend you only use a paper type that your printer is capable of managing successfully."

Each team has covers for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and wallpapers for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. FIFA 14 is already out on iPhone and Android , as a free download with plenty of tempting in-game purchases for classic game modes.

Best price for FIFA 14

As with GTA V , the supermarkets are the cheapest places to bag a copy of FIFA 14, but only if you bung it in your trolley with a load of other stuff. Sainsbury's, for example, will flog you a copy for £33, but only if you spend at least £30 on other items. Tesco offers the game for the same price when you buy "any selected points card, network card or subscription". That deal expires on Sunday.

Stock is likely to be very hard to come by today and over the weekend at those shops, so you may have to go elsewhere. Other supermarkets, such as Morrisons and Asda, and online retailers like Amazon and ShopTo, are selling it for £40. Resorting to GAME will set you back an extra fiver.

Which team do you support? Has your copy turned up today? What do you make of the new FIFA so far? Proudly support your club in the comments, or on our unaffiliated Facebook wall -- and check out what my GameSpot colleague Mark Walton thinks of the game in his video review below.
