With the bigger features of FIFA 12 being common knowledge now, people are starting to look for finer details to keep them going up until launch. Over the next few days, we’ll be posting some of those details.
Starting with the League and Team list today, Stadiums tomorrow and then Trophies and Gameplay Sliders the following two days. Any new additions are marked with an * next to them.
Australia – A League
Austria – A Bundesliga
Belgium – Pro League
Brazil – Liga do Brasil
Denmark – Superliga
England – Barclays PL, Npower champ, Npower league 1, Npower league 2
France – Ligue 1, Ligue 2
Germany – Bundesliga, 2 Bundesliga
Italy – Serie A, Serie B
Korea Republic – Sonata K Legaue
Mexico – Primera Div Mex
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Norway – Tippeligaen
Poland – Polska Liga
Portugal – Liga Portuguesa
Republic of Ireland – Irish League
Russia – Russian League
Scotland – SPL
Spain – Liga BBVA, Liga Adelante
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Switzerland – Axpo SL
United States – MLS
So no new additions to Leagues sadly and we seem to have lost the Czech and Turkish leagues with the latter being down to a change in the way the Turkish Football Federation handle licensing deals. Lots of links and further explanation in the comments.
That now leaves the Rest of World Line up looking like this.
So Galatasaray now live in the Rest Of The World section and there’s one addition in the form of Racing Club. Lastly we’ve got the International Team list:
Cote d’Ivoire *NEW*
China PR and the Czech Republic National sides disappear, but there are a few very welcome new additions too. So, that’s your lot with regards to Leagues and Teams in FIFA 12 this year and we’re certain that there will be some unhappy voices based on the removal of Turkish and the Czech Republic leagues respectively.
*Update* I’ve heard back from EA, this list is nailed on correct. Wikipedia is wrong, the Welsh league and US 2nd tier are NOT going to be in FIFA 12.
