Now that the announcement has been made, we are starting to see plenty of ways that Liverpool and the other Super League teams will affected by joining the new league. For starters, UEFA and FIFA have threatened that any player who features for a Super League club will not be able to represent their national team.
Now, another repercussion has come down but this one will mainly affect supporters. Liverpool will be removed from FIFA 22 and any following FIFA video games. This means that Liverpool supporters will not be able to play with their favourite club in the popular video game.
Liverpool, who will no longer feature in the video game, have played a large part in the game's public release and have featured in the demo for a few years in a row. However, that will be no more.
The EA Sports video game will not feature any of the following clubs:
Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC, Tottenham FC, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal FC, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan or Inter Milan.
In a statement released by the current 12 Founding Clubs, Andrea Agnelli who is the Chairman of Juventus and the Vice-Chairman of the Super League commented on the formation.
“Our 12 Founder clubs represent billions of fans across the globe and 99 European trophies. We have come together at this critical moment, enabling European competition to be transformed, putting the game we love on a sustainable footing for the long-term future, substantially increasing solidarity, and giving fans and amateur players a regular flow of headline fixtures that will feed their passion for the game while providing them with engaging role models.”
There are a lot of uncertainties surrounding the Super League, however one thing is clear--Liverpool will no longer feature in EA Sports FIFA video games starting with FIFA 22.
