Women’s National Teams to Feature FIFA 17
It’s been confirmed that FIFA 17 Women’s National Teams will be featuring in the game! It was the first time that women’s teams were introduced in FIFA 16, where users could choose from over 12 national teams and could compete in either match day, an offline tournament, or online friendly seasons. It appears that FIFA 17 will see an expanded list of Women’s National teams, rumored to be 16 teams in total.
The first new FIFA 17 Women’s National Team making the list appears to be Norway after a recent leak from the Norwegian forward Ada Hegerberg. Norway are currently ranked 11th in the FIFA World Rankings for 24th June, 2016.
Based on the FIFA World Rankings from June and previously included teams in FIFA 16, we can begin to speculate which FIFA 17 Women’s National Teams will be included in the game. You’ll notice that certain teams such as Japan, who are currently ranked 7th, were not included last year. This makes us think that they won’t feature this year either.
Here we make a brief list of 16 rumored women’s teams, including 12 women’s national teams that EA obtained the licenses for last year, will be returning to FIFA 17. And 4 new additional teams are likely to feature FIFA 17.
