FIFA 23 will feature the largest roster of licensed leagues, clubs, and stadiums in the series to date, bringing in huge teams from around the world. Here are all of the new licenses confirmed to feature in FIFA 23 so far.
With FIFA 22 beginning to wind down, attention is turning to what EA Sports has in store for FIFA 23. Fans have lofty expectations for the follow-up after the publisher promised to make the best FIFA game yet before the series is rebranded as EA Sports FC.
We’re expecting to see plenty of big improvements on the gameplay side of things, but players are always interested to see which iconic clubs and stadiums are joining the ever-growing roster.
A handful of new licenses have already been confirmed, so we’ve listed every new FIFA 23 league, club, and stadium we know of so far.
FIFA 23 will mark the debut of a number of leagues that have never featured in the series before, most notably from the world of women’s football. International squads were first added way back in FIFA 16, but the women’s game hasn’t been expanded on in any game since.
EA is clearly looking to change that in FIFA 23 as domestic women’s leagues will be playable for the very first time.
Well-known FIFA leaker DonkTrading has also revealed that clubs from the Vanarama National League, the fifth tier of English football, have been added to the game. However, there is no official word from EA on whether or not the league will be playable at launch.
Here’s every new league we know about in FIFA 23. Leaked divisions are marked with an asterisk:
- FA Women’s Super League (England)
- Division 1 Arkema (France)
- Serie B (Italy)
- Vanarama National League (England)*
In the months leading up to FIFA 23, leakers have steadily been revealing a host of clubs set to feature who weren’t present in FIFA 22. Donk Trading tweeted on June 3 claiming that one of Italy’s biggest teams is set to return.
Meanwhile, with World Cup content coming to FIFA 23, FUT22News believes a host of international sides are making a comeback. In fact, every team that qualified for the finals in Qatar is expected to show up.
Here’s every new team expected in FIFA 23 so far:
Barclays Women’s Super League
- Aston Villa
- Brighton & Hove Albion
- Leicester City
- Manchester City
- Manchester United
- West Ham United
Division 1 Arkema
- Le Havre
- Paris FC
- Juventus (Italy)
- Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa)
Vanarama National League
- Aldershot Town
- Boreham Wood
- Dagenham & Redbridge

- Maidenhead United
- Maidstone United
- Notts County
- Oldham Athletic
- Scunthorpe United
- Solihull Moors
- Southend United
- Torquay United
- Yeovil Town
- York City
Stadiums go a long way to making the FIFA series feel like the best recreation of the beautiful game. Being able to step out onto the grass of one of the most iconic arenas in the world adds to the immersion in a big way.
Luckily, we’ve got even more spectacular venues joining the lineup in FIFA 23, as well as some returning favorites. One of the biggest changes is that the homes of Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers will appear for the first time.
These grounds will be assigned to their respective clubs in Career Mode, as well as being made available to use in Ultimate Team in most cases.
- La Bombonera (Boca Juniors)
- Europa-Park Stadion (SC Freiburg)
- Allianz Stadium (Juventus)
- Banc of California Stadium (LA FC)
- El Sadar Stadium (CA Osasuna)
- Zorilla Stadium (Real Valladolid)
- Philips Stadion (PSV)
- City Ground Stadium (Nottingham Forest)
- Ibrox Stadium (Rangers)
- Celtic Park (Celtic)
- Academy Stadium (Manchester City Women)
La Bombonera and Allianz Stadium have all appeared in the franchise in the past, with the latter making its comeback after being exclusive to eFootball for a few years. EA have also announced a partnership with the MLS that will see more official stadiums added from the USA, but we’re still waiting to see which have been selected.
We’ll be updating this page with every new league, stadium, club, or license that is confirmed for FIFA 23, so be sure to check back here for the latest news.
