It looks that FIFA 15 will be the first FIFA game to feature real referees! EA Sports and Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) have reached a long-term partnership back in January this year. Since FIFA 14 was already released when this partnership was made, we expect the real English referees to be added in the upcoming FIFA. PGMOL provides match officials for three major English football bodies, Premier League, The FA and The Football League.

Matt Prior, the EA Sports lead producer of the 2014 FIFA World Cup game, said in an interview that many of the World Cup game features will be used in FIFA 15. One of the features may be the licensed National Teams that EA managed to get for the World Cup game. Bellow is a list of the national teams that took part in the qualifiers and were fully licensed (real roster, kits & crest) in the EA Sports 2014 FIFA World Cup and most likely will be added in FIFA 15:

– Ukraine
– Israel
– Iceland
– Senegal
– Zambia
– Qatar
– China
– Canada
– Jamaica

EA Sports managed to license the next teams only because they were included in the whole FIFA World Cup final tournament license so at this point we don’t know which one of them will be in FIFA 15, maybe all of them or none, who knows:

– Algeria
– Ghana
– Nigeria
– Iran
– Bosnia-Herzegovina
– Croatia
– Costa Rica
– Honduras

The Mexican club, Puebla FC, will be sponsored by EA Sports for the next three seasons following this announcement on their official website. The sponsorship deal will allow EA Sports to add the FIFA 15 logo on the their new 14/15 jerseys. There are no information if players from this team will have customized faces but with the club’s recent transfer of the Mexican legend, Cuauhtémoc Blanco, we at least expect his face to be in the game.

  1. look at 0:39 at the video….is that the champions league scoreboard?

  2. Since they’re two french teams, and not PSG or AS Monaco, I guess it’s just the French league scoreboard: 🙁
    But good news are coming, man. Rumors are HUGE that the Copa Libertadores will be included this year, and PES community is saying that there wasn’t an agreement between UEFA and the japaneses, so I’m really excited to see both UEFA tournaments in FIFA too! If both Champions League and Libertadores are featured in FIFA 15, there is no doubt that FIFA World Cup for teams will be included as well, and so it brings the idea that more african teams are to be included, the Chinese league and so on!
    FIFA 15 is gonna be epic!

  3. The UEFA competitions will not be in FIFA for many years. Konami have that license tied up well for the next few years at least

  4. I don’t know where you got this from but Adam Bhatti, European leader for PES has stated on twitter that the licenses are completely exclusive to Konami and no one else for the foreseeable future.
