FIFA 17 snaps up rights to J1 League

Electronic Arts announce that all 18 Clubs From The Meiji Yasuda J1 League will be included in FIFA 17.

As you would expect, each club will feature authentic logos, kits, and rosters, and the game will include the new Suita City Football Stadium, home of Gamba Osaka. Content from J1 League clubs will also feature in FIFA Ultimate Team and across other game modes in FIFA 17.

Previously, the J1 League was the sole preserve of Konami’s Pro Evolution series but they just don’t seem to care anymore, do they?

We don’t know much about the J1 League – or Japanese football in general – but being the videogame fanboys we are, we’ve decided to support Júbilo Iwata.

Nick Channon, Senior Producer of FIFA 17, said these things:

“The partnership with the J1 League is great news for our global fan base. It adds authenticity to the game, depth and new content to game modes, and most importantly, it answers a big request from football fans around the world.”
