European Super League: The official announcement of the European Super League may have an effect on the two main football installments in the video game, EA Sports FIFA and PES. The announcement of the European Super League has shaken the foundations of soccer globally. The war is served between the 12 founding teams, UEFA and FIFA. With an uncertain future for the competitions we know today, how could it affect the world of video games? EA Sports FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer remain there. Its catalog of competitions and clubs could change if the sanctions suggested by the European body materialize.
EA Sports FIFA and the European Super League: where are we?
FIFA 19 was a special installment for the history of the saga in the past generation. It was the first to offer the full license for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League. The two most important club competitions in Europe not only offered their full image, but also had a full impact on the future of Ultimate Team, as with the Road to the Final card series.
The arrival of the Super League, if it came true, would lose part of its appeal. We would no longer be able to see such relevant clubs as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Liverpool and the rest of the founding members in it. 20 would be in total, 12 of them already confirmed, 3 on the way and the other five as guests each season.
Not only that. If UEFA sanctions are carried out, they would stop participating in national competitions. We would see a Premier League without Manchester City, Chelsea or Arsenal, for example. The same would happen with the Spanish and the rest of the members. The footballers would stop being able to go with their national teams. Then we leave you with the affected clubs:
Atlético de Madrid
FC Internazionale Milano
Juventus of Turin (Piemonte Calcio)
It also raises questions about where it would leave them in the game. EA Sports FIFA takes its name from the official license of the soccer organization worldwide. These clubs would cease to be under the protection of these, would they also do it in the game? We do not know.
What we do know is that the measure would be imminent, that is, the European Super League is scheduled to start from next August. This would make the chain of events happen from the next few months … and the next title in the saga. We are talking about a scenario that would lead to these teams not appearing in FIFA 22. Will FIFA 21 be the last time we can handle them in the saga?
