Will we see any new leagues arrive in FIFA 22 later this year as the game hits next-gen consoles fully optimised for the first time?
We certainly hope so, and EA will be looking to strike back after the news of more Serie A clubs signing exclusively with Konami.

Latest news - Wave goodbye
Atalanta, who have ripped up the script in both Italy and Europe in recent seasons, will become an exclusive partner with Pro Evo from the 2021/22 season.
We would imagine Atalanta will be named after its location in FIFA 22 - either the city of Bergamo or the region of Lombardy.
We like the sound of Bergamo CF or SSC Lombardia to give them that true European feel.
Last year’s game was slightly delayed, but we don’t think the same will happen this year, and we should see a FIFA 22 demo too.
Going off the release date of previous editions of FIFA, we can have a fairly good guess at when we will be able to get our hands on FIFA 22.
We think FIFA 22 will become available in mid-to-late September, with pre-orders commencing in the weeks before.
We want the Brazilian league back. Any new league is always exciting, but the Brazilian league is a real miss, especially when it remains in the game with generic players.
We didn’t see any new leagues added in FIFA 21, so it would be a shame if that happened again.
The Rest of the World category plays host to some great clubs, so their respective domestic leagues would be good additions.
The Russian League and Italian Serie B have been removed in recent editions too, so the sooner they come back the better.
EA has the license for both the Champions League and the Europa League, so we imagine that they will also have the Europa Conference League too.
The new European competition is set to begin in 2021, so the competition may arrive after the release in an update.
We would love to see some more continental competitions in the game too, particularly the AFC Champions League with all the top Asian clubs in the game.
The South American competition is a great addition in recent seasons, but it appears to have come at the cost of the full leagues themselves.
As ever, the FIFA community has been voicing their opinions on which leagues should be brought into the game.
FIFPlay currently has a live vote for which league fans want most, and you can have your say here.
So far, it is the Greek league that leads the way. It would be great to see Olympiacos finally removed from the Rest of World category.
A surprising second place comes for the Honduran league. We love a random league, so this ticks our box.
