Despite the move away from the FIFA name, there have been a number of leagues confirmed for EA Sports FC so far. FIFA has reigned supreme over alternatives for years due to incomplete licensing, so it is reassuring to see the new name retain its old tricks.

If you're looking to find out which EA Sports FC leagues have been confirmed so far for the game, all you need to do is check out the rest of this guide below.

Alongside the announcement of EA Sports FC arrived a number of partner leagues for the game. While it has not been explicitly confirmed that these leagues will be fully licensed in-game, their partnership with EA Sports heavily indicates this fact.

Here is a list of the leagues that have partnered with EA Sports FC:

  • Premier League
  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Women's Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • UEFA Europa Conference League
  • LaLiga Santander
  • Bundesliga
  • Ligue 1
  • Serie A
  • CONMEBOL Libertadores
  • CONMEBOL Sudamerica
  • Barclays Women's Super League
  • NWSL
  • D1 Arkema
  • Sky Bet Championship
  • Sky Bet League One
  • Sky Bet League Two
  • Major League Soccer
  • Scottish Professional Football League
  • Argentine Primera Division
  • Liga Portugal
  • Eredivisie
  • Saudi Pro League
  • K-League
  • Chinese Super League

As you can see, almost all of the top men's and women's leagues are partnered with EA Sports FC with reportedly many more still to come in the future, so we should have little to worry about.

We should expect to see other top men's leagues like Super Lig, Belgian Pro League, and more included, but we could see some omissions on the women's side. Liga F - home to Ballon d'Or FĂ©minin holder and likely highest-rated player Alexia Putellas - has remained unlicensed in past FIFA titles, but hopefully this will change with the upcoming title.

EA has managed to secure quite a lot of the top clubs in the world for EA Sports FC, with many more still to be announced.

Of course, there are some glaring omissions, with the obvious ones being those currently partnered with eFootball. These include clubs like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Milan, Inter, Arsenal, Napoli, and more.

What will unlicensed leagues look like in EA Sports FC?

From a historical standpoint, if EA is unable to secure a licence for an entire league then it will likely be left out entirely in lieu of any fake names. Perhaps the most notable case of this comes in the form of the Brazilian Serie A which has been omitted from the last few FIFA games due to licensing issues.

However, individual clubs without licences in pre-existing licenced leagues will be treated differently. Serie A in Italy has had a number of these occurrences in the past few years, with clubs like Juventus, Atalanta, and Lazio having to masquerade as Piemonte Calcio, Bergamo Calcio, and Latium respectively.

  • If you need to boost your squad chemistry in FUT, then make sure to pick up one of the FIFA 23 managers.

On the flip side, if EA manages to secure the licence for a club in an otherwise unlicensed league, they will be placed within the 'Rest of the World' league, which has been the case for a non-league side like Wrexham A.F.C.

So, that should answer all of your questions if you were wondering which leagues have been confirmed for EA Sports FC. While you're still playing FUT though, make sure to check out the FIFA 23 cheapest 85 rated players to fill out any SBCs.
