ISL teams will reportedly be included in FIFA 22 for the first time

Perhaps the biggest reason for excitement for Indian football fans is that, for the first time ever, ISL will be included in a FIFA game. This is supremely good news for Indian fans, as they can possibly go up against European and Southern American giants with their favourite ISL team.

The league has previously only been featured on the mobile version of the game. Sources close to Khel Now have reported that FSDL and EA will be signing the final paperwork soon enough.

The game is easily the biggest football sports game around and the inclusion of ISL on all major platforms is absolutely a win. An official announcement is yet to happen, but seems pretty likely.


FIFA 22 is undoubtedly going to do pretty monumental numbers, as has every game in the series’ past – which has made it EA’s prized annual franchise. Fans of the series will be expecting EA to deliver on their promise of a “realistic, responsive and fluid experience”.

As has become a bona fide meme in the community, EA also promises improved Goalkeeper tech, with a curious feature called “Goalkeepr Rewrite”, which will enhance the last line of defence. A gameplay deep dive will likely shed light on the improved tech and AI of the latest iteration of the EA Sports FIFA formula.
