Will FIFA 17 Have Women's Team?

The big ticket item for FIFA 16 was the addition of women's football. At the EA Play event this year, there was no mention of the women's game in the fifteen minutes FIFA was showcased. Our site will offer cheap fifa 17 coins and latest fifa 17 news you can get here.

The official gameplay trailer for FIFA 17 has no women, and at the preview event I attended there was no way to field a women's team. It was hard not to walk away from the event seeing last year's mode -- a bolted-on competition that let you play as one of 12 international teams -- as a PR move; last year's flavor.

EA Sports completely disagreed with that characterization when I asked, with a spokesperson saying that "women's football is totally a part of FIFA 17," adding "it's an important piece" of the game and that more details on it will be announced further down the line. It's nonetheless disappointing to see EA, which rightly won many plaudits for its inclusive move last year, completely ignoring that side of the game for the FIFA 17 launch. Especially since if there was ever a mode fit for gender equality in the FIFA series, it's The Journey -- an aspirational story that I'm sure will appeal to the next generation of real soccer stars, both male and female.
