FIFPlay, a popular FIFA fan site has been conducting a poll on which leagues the fans want to be included in FIFA 21.
The Indian Super League and the Finnish Veikkausliga are the two most wanted leagues by the fans.
If you’re an Indian fan and want to see the ISL in FIFA 21, then go to FIFPlay and vote for ‘Indian League’.
This poll result may not have any effect on EA’s decision of including new leagues in FIFA 21, but this will clearly show how much the fans want ISL in the game.
If EA does include ISL, then this should lead to a huge spike in the game’s sales in the country. The move will also enable the Indian Super League to expand its already increasing fan base in global markets.
