Women’s football has long been an asked for feature in EA Sport’s FIFA series. It seems that every year we have the same conversation as interviewers asking where women’s teams are and EA dancing around the question, promising that some day it will come.
That day will finally come and it will be this year. EA just announced that FIFA 16 will indeed have women’s teams, at least on an international level. Over on the Guardian, it was announced that Germany, USA, France, Sweden, England, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, China, Italy and Mexico have all been confirmed as playable teams.
You won’t be able to have women and men play against each other, but I think that’s for the best. It stops the stats needing to be a direct comparison which could be a real thorn in EA’s side for a lot of reasons.
Check out the trailer here:
I imagine we will hear more details about this come EA’s E3 press conference.
