FIFA 17 Wishlist and Rumours: New Leagues

Likelihood: Confirmed
Name: J-League
Current Champions: Sanfrecce Hiroshima
Other Popular Clubs: Kashima Antlers, Gamba Osaka and Kashiwa Reysol

Brazilian League

FIFA 17 Wishlist and Rumours: New Leagues

Likelihood: Medium
Name: Serie A (Brasileirão)
Current Champions: Corinthians
Other Popular Clubs: Santos, Palmeiras, São Paulo, Flamengo, Cruzeiro and Fluminense

EA Sports has decided to drop this league in FIFA 16 because of problems with image rights. The players from Brazil were no longer represented by FIFPro and, since this was the association which mediated the negotiations, they started to negotiate individually. Something completely impractical. For FIFA 17, the producer has made a huge effort to ensure the return of the Brasileirão but for now there is still no sure if it will be included or not.


Chinese League

Likelihood: Medium
Name: Chinese Super League
Current Champions: Guangzhou Evergrande
Other Popular Clubs: Shandong Luneng, Beijing Guoan and Guangzhou R&F

It is known that Electronic Arts have been closing deals with the most popular Chinese clubs. This is the perfect timing to add the league to the game because many popular players moved to China and the league has now more fans than ever.

Likelihood: High

FIFA 17 will be the most authentic game of the series as the agreements all around the world show.
La Liga seams to have good chances of having the same treatment the Barclays PL had in FIFA 15, after the deal signed with Electronic Arts. In other words, besides fully licenses, there will be more careful in replicating every detail, from the advertising boards to the television broadcasts.
