FIFA 17: Norway Women's Team Confirmed and More Women's Teams on the Way
Last year, EA Sports introduced female football teams onto the popular game for the very first time, and it seems they are building on that idea in their next installment - FIFA 17.
The first new team set to be included in FIFA 17 later this year has been confirmed and it's the women's Norwegian international side who are to be introduced into the game. While there has been no official announcement from EA SPORTS on the decision to bring in the Norway women's side a post to Instagram from player Andrine Stolsmo Hegerberg has confirmed their involvement.
In the image the 22-year-old midfielder is clearly hooked up to the EA SPORTS facial capture studio, a piece of technology used by the developer that has become an identifiable part of the Fifa design experience. The information not only shows that the Norway women's team will be in the game but also confirms that EA will be further expanding the options available in the women's options on the game.
FIFA 16 contained 12 women's international sides, including England and the USA, and it seems the developer are keen on making that area of their game bigger in the next instalment.It's still early of course and there's plenty of time for FIFA 17 to announce other new leagues and teams to be included, but it's clear that EA are eager on further building their arsenal of teams in time for release at the end of September.
So more women's teams on the way, but who else will be added?
