In a big announcement for gamers and football fans, Hero Indian Super League (ISL) has officially confirmed it’ll feature in EA Sports FIFA 22. This marks the league’s debut in EA’s football simulation series which is wildly popular round the world.
The new FIFA title is scheduled for release on October 1, 2021. For the primary time ever, it’ll feature all the eleven ISL clubs, their official kits, and other likenesses.
In a politician blog post, Hero Indian Super League announced the large news and shared the growing excitement before the game’s release next month. Calling FIFA 22 “the most authentic football experience available,” the post highlighted that ISL’s inclusion carries “an important relevance to the highly active young Indian gaming community and fans alike in India and abroad.”
Moreover, the post expressed that the league’s addition would help Indian gamers “build greater affinity towards their clubs and players.”
Although it’ll be the primary time ISL features within the main FIFA series, it isn’t new EA’s football games. The Indian top-flight also appeared in FIFA Mobile, back in 2019, courtesy of the Football Sports Development Limited’s license.
Undoubtedly, ISL being integrated into the long-lasting FIFA franchise may be a huge boost for India’s representation in games. At an equivalent time, it also brings global exposure to the less-than-a-decade-old league .
On the opposite hand, EA could see a possible increase in FIFA 22 sales, especially in India, after ISL’s addition. Therefore, it looks like a win-win partnership for the developer and therefore the league also .
