It Is Confirmed That Chinese Super League Joined in FIFA 19

A week ago, pictures of a photo shoot by EA SPORTS circulated on the Internet at Shanghai IPG, and Sony has now confirmed that the Chinese Super League (CSL) is in FIFA 19. All 16 clubs in the league will be pictured in the game.

At the ACGHK 2018, a video games and comics fair, Sony announced news about FIFA 19 at a PlayStation press conference. Most of it had already been published at E3. However, one announcement had been lifted: The Chinese Super League will be present in FIFA 19. This affects all 16 clubs.

Zhao Yuchen had already pointed out the innovation a week earlier. Shanghai IPG's press officer had posted photos of EA's photo shoot at his club. But that was not clear whether the developer only a few licenses secured or the entire league would be included. The confirmation was only available at the ACGHK.

For China and the rest of the world
With the integration of CSL, EA SPORTS meets the wishes of many FIFA players. In a survey on the community page fifplay in 2017, the Chinese and the Indian league were ahead along with the 3rd German league. While fans from the respective country were responsible for most of the votes, the CSL is a special case, because the league does not only appeal to players from China.

In recent years, the money attracted more and more top players to the Middle Kingdom. Names like Oskar, Hulk, Guarin, Paulinho, Ba and Martinez are well known to most FIFA players and will be an asset to FIFA Ultimate Team in particular.
