FIFA 23: All new leagues, teams, & stadiums

FIFA 23 will feature more leagues, teams, and stadiums than ever before, so we’ve broken down each new one right here.



FIFA 23 new stadiums leagues and teams

FIFA 23 is gearing up to be the biggest year of EA’s football franchise to date, with more official licenses than ever before. Here’s every new league, team, and stadium we know about so far.

Following the news that EA and football’s main governing body are ending their relationship after nearly 30 years, FIFA 23 is set to be last the game to feature FIFA branding before the series is rebranded as EA Sports FC.

But before we move into the new era of EA Sports’ football games, FIFA 23 is looking to go out with a bang. This year is set to offer players the most official licenses from the real sport, including some of the world’s best players, than ever before, across both Career Mode and Ultimate Team.

Here’s every new league, team, and stadium we know about in FIFA 23 so far.

FIFA 23 new leagues

Women's football in FIFA 22

FIFA 23 is set to bring plenty of new leagues into the mix, with women’s football taking center stage more than ever before.

Domestic leagues are set to be playable for the very first time. International sides were first introduced back in FIFA 16, but the representation of the women’s game hasn’t really kicked on in the games since.

Thankfully, it appears that EA is looking to rectify that in FIFA 23, as well as adding some other leagues from the men’s game.

Here’s every new league we know about so far:

  • FA Women’s Super League (England)
  • National Women’s Soccer League (USA)
  • Frauen-Bundesliga (Germany)
  • Division 1 Féminine (France)
  • Vanarama National League (England)

It’s worth noting that while FIFA 23 is adding exciting new leagues, both the Japanese J-League and Mexican Liga BBVA MX will be leaving the roster this time around.

FIFA 23 new teams

FIFA 23 World Cup mode

While EA haven’t made any formal announcements about the new teams showing up in FIFA 23, leakers have begun revealing them ahead of time.

FIFA insider Donk Trading revealed that Juventus’ exclusive deal with Konami to appear in eFootball has ended, meaning the Serie A side will be in FIFA 23 with the proper name, kits, and stadium.

On top of that, following the news that World Cup 2022 content is on the way, it’s safe to assume that all of the international teams that have qualified for the tournament will feature. This means a handful of African countries that were missing previously will be added.

Here are all of the new teams that are expected to be in FIFA 23 so far:

  • Juventus
  • Croatia
  • Senegal
  • Cameroon
  • Morocco
  • Ghana
  • Tunisia
  • Aldershot Town
  • Altrincham
  • Barnet
  • Boreham Wood
  • Bromley
  • Chesterfield
  • Dagenham & Redbridge
  • Dorking Wanderers
  • Eastleigh
  • Halifax Town
  • Gateshead
  • Maidenhead United
  • Maidstone United
  • Notts County
  • Oldham Athletic
  • Scunthorpe United
  • Solihull Moors
  • Southend United
  • Torquay United
  • Wealdstone
  • Woking
  • Wrexham
  • Yeovil Town
  • York City

FIFA 23 new stadiums

Barcelona's Camp Nou in FIFA

While having the official kits and badges is nice, it’s arguably the recreated stadiums that do the heaviest lifting in terms of making FIFA feel immersive. Whether it’s as your home ground in FUT or an away day in Career, stepping out onto an iconic pitch is hard to beat.

Every year, EA adds more and more famous venues for fans to play at, including the homes of any newly promoted teams in leagues that have full licensing – like the English Premier League.

FIFA 23 will also see some stadiums return following a few years away from the series after they were snatched away by eFootball in exclusive partnerships.

  • Spotify Camp Nou (FC Barcelona)
  • Allianz Arena (FC Bayern)
  • Allianz Stadium (Juventus)
  • Stadio Olimpico (Rome / Lazio)
  • City Ground Stadium (Nottingham Forest)

We’ll be updating this page regularly in the months leading up to FIFA 23’s launch, so be sure to check back in to see the latest new leagues, teams, and stadiums.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Bundesliga is expected to supply some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.



FIFA 23 Bundesliga Ratings

The Bundesliga will be the battleground for some of FIFA 23’s highest-rated stars, with players from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund set to impact Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Bundesliga ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each new FIFA title brings new Ultimate Team ratings based on player performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no different. To discern which players are deserving of an upgrade or downgrade, EA will analyze the 2021/2022 season.

In Germany, the 2021/2022 Bundesliga season saw Bayern Munich cruise to a tenth straight title. The battle for Champions League spots was a fierce one as Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig should all expect player rating upgrades in FIFA 23.

But who will be the best players in the Bundesliga? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Bundesliga players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Sadio ManeBayern Munich+190
Joshua KimmichBayern Munich+190
Manuel NeuerBayern Munich-189
Leon GoretzkaBayern Munich87
Thomas MullerBayern Munich-186
Kingsley ComanBayern Munich86
Filip KosticEintracht Frankfurt +286
Koen CasteelsWolfsburg-185
Christopher NkunkuRB Leipzig+485

It’s been quiet summer so far when it comes to Bundesliga transfers. However, things in Germany can still heat up with the summer transfer window open until September 1.

All eyes will be on Bayern Munich as they look to keep a hold of disgruntled star striker Robert Lewandowski. At this moment, the striker is attempting to force a move to Barcelona, but if he remains, there’s no doubt he’ll be the highest-rated FIFA 23 player in the Bundesliga.

Bayern dominates the predicted list of top ten Bundesliga players in FIFA 23. The illustrious German club won ten Bundesliga titles in a row and they’re the clear powerhouse option to pick up an eleventh straight title in 2023.

Elsewhere, Filip Kostic enjoyed a fantastic season in which Frankfurt secured a Europa League trophy. FIFA 22 delivered a whopping ten separate special Christopher Nkunku cards and the midfielder’s performances should see him rise to 84 or 85 in FIFA 23.

Marco Reus FIFA 22

FIFA 23 Bundesliga rating predictions: Every team’s best players

The Bundesliga is dominated by Bayern Munich players when it comes to landing a player in the top 10. Nonetheless, it’s still fascinating to see how EA upgrades and downgrades players from across Germany with each new title. In the 2021/2022 season, every team had both surprises and disappointments that should be reflected when FIFA 23 is released.

With this in mind, we’ve made our predictions for every Bundesliga club’s top three players in FIFA 23:

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch: OTW promo explained & predictions

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is set to be the first major promo of FUT 23, so here’s everything we know about the event so far.



FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is expected to be the first major promo of this season’s Ultimate Team, celebrating the most exciting moves from the summer transfer window. Here’s how FIFA 23 OTW will work, along with the players likely to feature.

Ones to Watch is always one of the most interesting and exciting promos in any FIFA, mainly because it tends to be the very first major event of the year. FIFA 23 will be no exception, as EA look to shine the spotlight on the biggest transfers of the summer.

FIFA 22 OTW was arguably the biggest ever, as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo switched clubs in a crazy end to the transfer window. While FIFA 23 OTW is unlikely to have as many groundbreaking signings to choose from, some of the game’s highest-rated players have been on the move.

Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, from how the cards will work to the players we expect to see.

Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?

EA are yet to confirm when FIFA 23 Ones to Watch will kick off, but we can look at previous years to gain a pretty good idea.

Last year, OTW got underway on October 1, the same day as FIFA 22’s worldwide release. With this in mind, we’d expect FIFA 23 OTW to begin on Friday, September 30, 2022.

This is the expected FIFA 23 release date based on various leaks and the usual schedule, but we’ll add new information to this section once it’s available.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained

Ones to Watch Team 2 FIFA 22

FIFA 23 OTW will award special live cards to players who have recently moved to a new club. These dynamic items will go up in rating depending on how well the player performs for their club in real life.

Each time a OTW star is handed a TOTW after a top display in their domestic league, the card will increase in rating and stats to match the most recent one.

For example, in FIFA 22, Dayot Upamecano started out at an 82-rated card after his move to Bayern Munich. But, by the end of the year, he was 87-rated and one of the best center-backs that the Bundesliga had to offer.

They will also receive an extra +1 boost for winning a certain number of matches after the promo begins. Last year, the threshold was five wins out of 10 games after October 2.

We’ll update this section with more specific information once EA officially announces the promo.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch predictions

The summer transfer window is far from closed, but we’ve already seen some major signings that are a shoo-in to be a FIFA 23 OTW. On top of that, there are plenty of deals that are on the verge of going through that will surely make the cut.

Here are our predictions for FIFA 23 Ones to Watch so far:

Player NameTransferTransfer Confirmed?Predicted Rating
Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich to BarcelonaNo92
Erling HaalandBorussia Dortmund to Manchester CityYes90
Sadio ManeLiverpool to Bayern MunichYes90

How to complete FIFA 22 Gareth Bale End of an Era SBC

An End of an Era Gareth Bale SBC is live in FIFA 22 to celebrate the Welshman’s career with Real Madrid. Here’s everything you need to know.



FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale

An End of an Era Gareth Bale has dropped in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to mark the end of the Welshman’s decorated Real Madrid career. Here’s how to complete the SBC and unlock this unbelievable new card.

After nine years, five Champions League winners medals, and plenty of controversies, Gareth Bale’s time with Real Madrid has come to an end. The Welsh star is moving on to Los Angeles FC, but he leaves the Galacticos having won every major trophy on offer to him.

To celebrate his Madrid career, EA have added an End of an Era Bale to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team during the Shapeshifters promo, unlockable through an SBC.

It’s one of the most eye-watering cards we’ve had in FIFA 22 to date, so here’s how to complete End of an Era Gareth Bale as well as cheap solutions for each section.

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale stats

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale stats

Even with so many special promo cards on the market, End of an Era Bale stands out as one of the best players in FIFA 22. Both his Pace and Finishing are virtually maxed out, so he’ll strike fear into defenders and goalkeepers alike.

97 Dribbling means he can glide past full-backs with ease, but his impressive passing gives him the ability to play in an attacking midfield role if you want him more involved in the action. Throw in 99 Jumping and Heading Accuracy, and it’s hard to find a single drawback.

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale requirements & solutions

There are only four squads to submit for End of an Era Bale, but very high requirements mean it will set you back around 750,000 coins to complete the overall SBC, based on data from FUTBIN.

It’s definitely on the pricey side, but that’s probably to be expected for a 98-rated player from one of the game’s most popular leagues.

If you’re thinking of adding Bale to your squad, we’ve laid out all of the SBC requirements and cheapest solutions below:

Real Madrid requirements

  • # of Real Madrid players: Min 1
  • # of TOTW or TOTS players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Reward: Premium Mixed Players Pack


FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale Real Madrid solution

LaLiga requirements

  • # of LaLiga players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 87
  • Team Chemistry: Min 55
  • Reward: Rare Mixed Players Pack


FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale LaLiga solution

Top Form requirements

  • # of TOTW or TOTS players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 88
  • Team Chemistry: Min 40
  • Reward: Premium Mixed Players Pack


FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale Top Form solution

89-Rated Squad requirements

  • Squad Rating: Min 89
  • Team Chemistry: Min 35
  • Reward: Jumbo Premium Gold Players Pack


FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale 89 Rated Squad

Players have until Wednesday, August 3 to complete all four SBCs for End of an Era Bale, so there’s plenty of time to save up those Division Rivals and FUT Champions rewards. There are also plenty of packs up for grabs in Summer Stars to help ease the pain.

This is an SBC that certainly won’t be for everyone, as the price is extremely high and Bale’s Welsh nation link makes him tough to fit into teams that don’t have plenty of LaLiga players already.

However, if you can fit him into your squad, there’s no doubt End of an Era Bale has the stats to be one of the best players in all of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
