An unlikely source has confirmed that FIFA 19 will include full licensing for the UEFA Champions League!
The leak came from Fox Sports commentator Evert ten Napel, who does voiceover work for the FIFA series of titles. He expressed, on Dutch TV, his excitement at the competition coming to this years instalment of the franchise. Have a listen.
Here’s the translation in full:
“For about six or seven days a year, I record updated lines in the studio in Utrecht with Youri Mulder . In 2019 as well, the game will get even better, because they’ve added the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. I’m almost finished with the 2019 version, which will then go to the test center. Some very good players will check everything and after that, it will go to the stores in October. And then all those weirdos will be standing in line again at midnight.”
No release date has been confirmed for FIFA 19 as yet, with a full reveal expected at E3 in a couple of weeks time.
