Reports: EA Sports in talks to add Indian Super League in FIFA series

EA Sports’ FIFA franchise grows by the year! The football simulation is currently one of the biggest games in the world, with millions of fans eagerly waiting for its release every year. Furthermore, the gaming franchise continues to gather mass appeal by including teams and leagues from all over the world. And, reportedly, they have found their next target! 

According to a report by Khel Now, EA Sports is in talks with the Indian Super League to include a virtual rendition of the competition in their popular gaming franchise, FIFA. The report, in question, states that the Indian league will first be introduced in the mobile version of the game, better known as FIFA Mobile, before being made available to other platforms.

Meanwhile, FIFA already has included the Indian National Team since the 2012 edition. Although the team remains unlicensed, the players are represented by their true names and available in all segments of the game.

Supporters of the Indian Super League will see this as another big win if the rumour does indeed turn out to be true. Moves were made recently for the competition to be awarded a ‘premier’ status by the All India Football Federation, with the winner being granted an AFC Champions League qualification spot. The move has been made with a view to promoting the ISL as the top league in India, with the I-League losing its spot.
