In recent years FIFA has gone all out to include a variety of leagues from around the world – but there are still some notable omissions.
We go through the leagues we hope to see in FIFA 18.
Chinese Super League
There’s simply no way this won’t feature in FIFA 18, especially given just how many top players now ply their trade over in the Far East.
Oscar, Hulk and Tevez are but a few of the big-money signings – with the likes of Diego Costa looking more than likely to join them next season.
We’ve already seen the Argentinian Primera Division and Colombian Primera A featured in the game – now it’s time the Chinese Super League arrived.
Although the Brazilian top flight is in FIFA 17, it’s not properly licensed – and hasn’t been since FIFA 14.
That’s because EA still hasn’t managed to reach a deal with the rights holders in Brazil.
PES maker Konami, though, has the full license for the Brazilian Serie A in Pro Evo 2017, not to mention a partnership with Corinthians.
Here’s hoping EA can get the rights to Brasileiro for FIFA 18.
National Women’s Soccer League
FIFA 16 was the first in the series to include women’s soccer – but it still feels under-developed in FIFA 17.
The US is arguably the biggest driving force behind the women’s game, so EA needs to include America’s National Women’s Soccer League.
While they’re at it, why not get the Frauen Bundesliga in Germany, the Division 1 Feminine in France and the Women’s Premier League in England to join the party, too?
The third tier of the Bundesliga
It’s hard to believe the likes of RB Leipzig played in 3 Bundesliga a few years ago – but the league still has plenty of talent.
F.C. Hansa Rostock, MSV Duisburg and FC Magdeburg are but a few of the teams deserving of inclusion in FIFA 18.
When you think FIFA 17 already includes equivalent divisions in both Spain and England, surely this isn’t a big ask?
