A Lot of New Teams We may See in FIFA 17

EA Sports are currently finalizing all the minor details about the game as it is soon to be released. There are more than six hundred teams in FIFA 16 and we predict that at least 20 more will be added in this year’s version.

We have talked about new Leagues, new Legends and even new stadiums. Now it’s time to discuss new clubs that we can see in FIFA 17 game. FIFA 17 coins on sale on u4fifa.com.

Glasgow Rangers

Glasgow Rangers
The Glasgow Rangers were dropped out of FIFA 16 due to problems with licensing. They are set to make a return to the Scottish League in FIFA 17 after the fresh promotion to the Championship.

Jiangsu Suning

Jiangsu-Suning
Ex-Chelsea star Ramiers and Alex Tixeira joined this Chinese League club with huge money on their back. They were left out of the Ultimate Team which was criticized by a lot of FUT players thus it is very likely that Jiangsu will be in FIFA 17. It will also mean that other superstars playing in China including Gervinho and Demba Ba will be in the game.

San Marino

San-Marino
We have already covered this before but here we go again. The San Marino fans created an online campaign to force EA to add them into the game. More than 20 thousands participated in this movement. We believe that EA are aware of this which makes us think that there is a possibility that they are going to add San Marino in the game.

Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham-Town
Cheltenham were relegated beyond the English League Two which means that they were left out of FIFA 16. They are set to make a return to the game, after a stunning return to the League. No such luck for relegated Tranmere Rovers.

Maccabi Tel Aviv

Maccabi Tel-Aviv
The Israeli Champions could make it into FIFA 17 having already been placed in the Pro Evolution Soccer. As Israeli League is one of the most wanted league in FIFA 17 Polls, the whole league and of course the 21 times champions might get a place.

Premier League Female Teams

Premier-League-Female-Teams

We are to believe that EA wants to add more female teams in FIFA 17 as we already know that the Norwegian team is going to be in the list of teams. We expect EA to add a few female clubs and what better way to start with the all famous Chelsea Ladies or Manchester City Ladies side.

San-Marino

FIFA Fans Petition for Under-performing San marino Available in FIFA 17

San Marino’s national football team has grown accustomed to goal droughts, heavy defeats and losing streaks over the years, but their fans still believe they should have representation on FIFA 17.

San-Marino

A group of FIFA fans are petitioning to have the world’s most unsuccessful football team included in this year’s game. The fans want San Marino, a team which has only one international win to its name, included within the game. In this respect they have even set up a petition and a twitter hashtag #SanMarinoEnElFIFA17.

The microstate has never had a playable team on any of EA Sports’ previous FIFA titles, and with only one solitary win in the last 26 years, it certainly looks unlikely to happen any time soon.

While many football fans might brush off their argument for being included in next year’s FIFA 17 game, there is no doubt that some gamers would fancy the challenge of controlling the San Marino team and challenging people online.

EA has traditionally positioned FIFA as a club-focussed game, with last year’s edition featuring 48 men’s and 12 women’s international sides.

However, we already know that list is expanding to include the Norway ladies’squad. So maybe although it is a big maybe, admittedly – there is a smidgen of hope for a team that scored its first away goal in 14 years against Lithuania last September.

So, if you would like to Make San Marino Great Again, for lack of a better expression, sign the petition to get them on the game!

Teams Should be Included in FIFA 17

EA Sports is currently putting the finishing touches to its team list for FIFA 17. Who’ll be added to the 650-strong sides included last year?

fifa17-teams

We know the catalogue of women’s sides in the game is set to be expanded once again, and a certain very famous Scottish side is nailed on to feature after recently securing promotion to the top flight. And, for that matter, Ultimate Team stars who may be removed after starting new lives in China? All of these are covered below. Let’s hope EA is reading…

Glasgow Rangers

The most obvious of the lot. Fresh off promotion from the Scottish Championship, it’s 99% certain that the blue half of Glasgow will make its return in FIFA 17, after being dropped from FIFA 16 over a licensing disagreement. It’s more good news after that Old Firm derby penalty shoot-out victory last weekend.

Jiangsu Suning

With Brazilians Ramires (pictured) and Alex Teixeira joining Jiangsu in mega-money January deals, Ultimate Team players have been especially vocal about adding the Chinese Super League next season in order to retain their favourites year-on-year. Should the full league be included it’d also mean FUT reprieves for Gervinho, Paulinho and Demba Ba.

Albania, Croatia, Iceland, Slovakia & Ukraine

fifa17-team

FIFA is a club game, but to our eyes all qualifiers to major national tournaments should be represented too. In Euro 2016’s case, that would mean five new international sides who didn’t feature last time around, including those of Luka Modric, Gylfi Sigurdsson (both pictured) and Martin Skrtel.

San Marino

At the other end of the international scale are Europe’s least successful footballing nation. San Marino have long been requested by fans, to the point of a (not necessarily legal) patch devoted to them being made for FIFA 09. This year there’s even an online campaign to get them in the game, via the social media hashtag #SanMarinoEnFIFA17 and change.org petition.

Tranmere Rovers & Cheltenham Town

Relegation from League Two means the harshest fate possible in FIFA world: complete removal from the game. After missing out on FIFA 16 as a result, Cheltenham’s storming Conference season ensures a return in FIFA 17. There’ll by no such joy for Rovers – unless EA adds the National League license, which would also see virtual comebacks for Torquay United, Grimsby and Lincoln too.

Maccabi Tel Aviv

The 22-time Israeli champions were added to this year’s PES as a free DLC team (pictured), but remain AWOL from EA’s series. That’s despite the Israeli top flight topping an independent fan vote for the most wanted new league, with more than 380,000 votes. There may be hope for Tal Ben Haim’s FIFA career yet.

Norway, Japan & Cameroon (ladies)

fifa-women's-team

We’re already know the list of 12 women’s teams include Norway. Japan must surely be an imminent add too, having won the World Cup in 2011 and finished as runners-up to the USA last year, while 2015 surprise package Cameroon would be the first African women’s team to feature.

Chelsea, Arsenal, & Manchester City (ladies)
If more female international sides are on the way, then why not domestic ones, too? EA has already done half the job by securing likenesses for the likes of Steph Houghton (City), Casey Stoney (Arsenal), and Chelsea pair Eni Aluko and Karen Carney (both pictured). The full WSL seems inevitable eventually, even if it isn’t fully implemented this year.

Something about FIFA 17 Women’s Team

Each year we tend to get a ​FIFA ​launch around September. Whether or not EA intended it to be public knowledge, one thing we know for certain about FIFA 17 is that it’ll come with an increased roster of women’s teams. Last year saw FIFA tentatively dip its toe into the increasingly popular women’s game, with a mini tournament featuring national squads – England taking on the likes of the USA, Germany, France, Japan and a few others. It would appear this year, the roster is set to get something of a boost.

fifa17-women-team

Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg posted a photo on Instagram having her picture taken by the bods at EA, presumably for inclusion in FIFA 17. FIFA 16 saw the introduction of women’s teams into the World renowned series and included 12 international teams for the first time in the game’s history. These teams were. All 12 international received the same treatment as their male counterparts through having the players heads scanned into the game.

Rumours suggest the original 12 women’s teams is set to jump to 16 or more in FIFA 17. Given Norway currently sit at #11 in the most recent rankings, it’s no great leap to imagine that the Scandinavian giants – former world champions no less – are likely to be part of that expanded set-up.

But what about league football?

In tandem with the impressive performances from the England Lionesses, so the popularity of the Women’s Super League has also blossomed, with current champions Chelsea being run very close by fresh force Manchester City right until the final day of the season. In our view, now would be the perfect time to add league football to FIFA’s roster, though we expect we may have to wait until FIFA 18 or possibly even FIFA 19 before it joins the party.

In summary, FIFA 17 should include:

  • Licensed club sides from the major leagues in the women’s game
  • Head scans to add authenticity to the game and possibility to use licenses for the male sides which could see the addition of new stadiums (which men/women share)
  • Add additional countries to the 12 which feature in FIFA 16
  • The addition of extra teams should see a career mode for the women’s sides to add an extra element to the game.
