Leagues

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.

Two new leagues 'leaked'

It has been leaked that the Brazilian Serie A league is one of two new leagues set to be added to EA's upcoming release, possibly along with the Indian Super League too!

With real players added to the database, it looks like EA may have secured the full licenses to the selected Brazilian teams.

Of course, we must take this with a pinch of salt, as players keep getting added with ratings from the Brazilian League, so at the moment it is a possibility and not a reality.

Take a closer look at the two new leagues possibly coming to FIFA 22.

Licenses

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.

THE CHAMPIONS - You can already hear the music

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.

Wave goodbye

It could be panic stations at EA ahead of FIFA 22, with a fourth Serie A club licence being lost to rivals Konami and PES in the space of three seasons.

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.

GENERIC - Another unlicensed kit will be added to FIFA 22

Similar to Juventus (Piemonte Calcio), Atalanta's new name on FIFA 22 will be Bergamo Calcio.

This is another significant blow as football fans are often fickle around licensing issues.

Community vote

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.

SURPRISE NAMES - There are some rogue leagues in the mix

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.
