The team catalog in EA Sports’ FIFA franchise is growing.
The company has announced that it will be adding 19 officially licensed clubs from Brazil to FIFA 14. The addition brings the game’s total team selection database to over 600 clubs from over 30 different leagues.
FIFA 14 will feature nearly twice as many officially licensed Brazilian clubs over the last iteration of the game, including 18 teams from the Série A. The 19 Brazilian clubs who have been officially licensed and will be showcased in-game are: Atlético Mineiro, Atlético Paranaense, Botafogo, Coritiba, Criciúma, Cruzeiro, Flamengo, Fluminense, Goiás, Grêmio, Internacional, Náutico, Palmeiras, Ponte Preta, Portuguesa, Santos, São Paulo, Vasco da Gama, and Vitória.
For those who think that the addition of these 19 new clubs is it for FIFA 14, think again. In the announcement of the Brazilian teams addition, EA Sports stated that “additional new league and club licenses will be announced prior to FIFA 14’s release in North America on September 24 and worldwide on September 27.”
It seems to be only a matter of time before the FIFA franchise includes every league and team in the world in the game. The potential matchups you can create are unmatched by any game out there which always helps a games replay value. Not that you needed any more of a reason to keep playing it.
