FIFA 22 will once again feature plenty of the most popular competitions from around the world, between national leagues and continental tournaments, many of which are exclusively licensed to EA Sports. The official trophies, logos and emblems of these competitions feature in Career Mode and Ultimate Team.
FIFA 22 is the only place that gamers will be able to play UEFA competitions such as the Champions League, Europa League and the new Europa Conference League. The Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana — the South American equivalents to UEFA’s club tournaments — are also exclusive to the EA Sports game.
Interestingly, while Serie A is one of the official exclusive leagues on FIFA 22, a number of its high-profile clubs will not appear in their normal form due to deals that they have struck individually with competing titles. For example, Juventus are known in FIFA 22 as ‘Piemonte Calcio’, Lazio are in the game as ‘Latium’, AS Roma are Roma FC and Atalanta are fashioned as ‘Bergamo Calcio’.
North American football fans will be able to play with their favorite MLS and Liga MX clubs, while Asia and Australia are covered with the J-1 League, Chinese Super League and A-League.
