Every FIFA fan expect to see a more realistic game: more stadiums, more leagues, more teams and more legends. This year, it is no different. Let’s check which new teams we can expect to see in FIFA 18.
New teams we can expect to see in FIFA 18
Electronic Arts are currently finalising all the minor details about the game as it will be released in late September. There are more than six hundred teams in FIFA 17 and we predict that at least 25 more will be added in this year’s version. It’s time to discuss new clubs that we can see in FIFA 18 game.
All Chinese Super League Clubs
It looks like FIFA 18 could include the Chinese Super League, with EA Sports seemingly set to spread its reach to the bank-rolling division in the series’ next edition. The Chinese Super League has been around since 2004, but was recently in the news as they looked to make a splash in global soccer. The league was always considered soccer Siberia for players and the CSL was never able to get big-name players. As of late, the CSL has been in the market for some of the best talent in the world by paying whatever it takes to get it. The problem is that many signed stars in the league are still handicapped by subpar players around them. The press has published that the Chinese Super League was already confirmed because of a Alex Teixeira post on his instagram account but they forgot to check if it was fake or not. It was.
According to Gazzeta.gr, AEK Athens will make its comeback in the FIFA series after a three-years absence following the club’s financial issues and relegation to the third greek football division. After their promotion in the top greek division and participation in this year’s european cups, Electronic Arts agreed on a new deal with the club officials and we can expect to see the club in the Rest of the World league of FIFA 18.
This team is making an amazing season and have really good chances to be promoted to the first dutch division. If that happens, they will make their return to the game after the relegation of 2013.
Here is another club that we expect to see in FIFA 18. If they keep their form, they will be promoted to the Russian Premier League and you will be able to play with them.
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.
Several National Teams
You probably agree with us: many good national teams are missing in this game. Since this is a year of World Cup, we expect to see Electronic Arts including some of the best national teams that were left out of FIFA 17. Croatia, Costa Rica, Iceland, Slovakia, Senegal, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine, Iran, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Congo DR and Korea Republic are just a few examples of national teams ranked in the first 40 places of the FIFA / Coca-Cola table that were not inserted in FIFA 17 but could be in FIFA 18.
