Part of the allure of the FIFA video games is the licensing of real-world clubs and leagues. As EA has already publicised, this season's game will include the UEFA Champions League - the most prestigious club competition in European football.

Now, the latest news to emerge is in regards to a new league that will be represented in FIFA 19. An image has surfaced via a tweet, revealing the Chinese Super League will be included in the upcoming annual release for the first time ever. This announcement was made during a presentation at the 2018 Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong event. 

The Chinese League is home to a number of famous players who have in the past been excluded from the FIFA games due to licensing issues. If this is eventually confirmed by EA, between the CSL and the Champions League, this would put the franchise even further ahead of the competition.

FIFA 19 arrives on Switch at the end of September. Will you be picking it up on release? Tell us in the comments.
