Isreal: the League FIFA 17 Fans Want Most

Israel’s Premier League has overtaken the Turkish second division as the league football fans most want to see in FIFA 17.


It’s unlikely that the game’s makers, EA, will pay much attention to internet polls when planning FIFA 17, but given the fact that over 2 million people have taken the time to vote on the FIFPlay poll of leagues.

The poll indicates that the Israeli league is the most in demand, with over 400,000 votes. This is closely followed by Turkey’s second division and then the third tier of German football.


That clearly stirred fans of clubs such as Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Be’er Sheva into action, with Israel storming into top spot on the back of an impressive 422,905 fan votes. German’s third division remains a distant third behind the Israeli-Turkish tussle.

EA is known for adding new leagues every year, with FIFA 16 boasting a colossal 34. Turkey’s top flight featured for the first time in FIFA 15, but decent Champions League showings by Maccabi Tel Aviv in recent years haven’t been enough to see Israeli teams included. This fan vote may finally change that.

FIFA 17 is expected on multiple formats later this year.
