If you expect real-life authenticity in FIFA 17 then EA Sports got you covered with the following Authenticity Feature List.


The Iceland National Football Team won’t be in FIFA 17 after the president of the Icelandic football association confirmed that no agreement has been reached with EA Sports for the team’s image license.

The initial offer from EA Sports for the inclusion of the team in FIFA 17 was just over 15.000$ which was under the expectations of KSI (Iceland Football Association).

Iceland made a counter offer but EA Sports rejected it, thus leaving Iceland out of FIFA 17.

It’s surprising that EA Sports made such a low offer for the team’s license considering the amount of profit and income they make from the game.


On the other hand, the Netherlands and Norway Women’s National Football Teams have been confirmed in FIFA 17 after the release of the next two screens:
