As a Rangers and FIFA fan it gives me no pleasure to write this story. In fact I’m totally gutted to be honest.
It’s emerged over the past few days that EA will continue to support the SPL following Rangers demotion to the Scottish Football League’s Third Division. It seems however that the inclusion of Rangers is not a forgone conclusion.
“As far as Glasgow Rangers are concerned, we have not made a decision at this time on whether we will pursue a separate licensing agreement to include them in FIFA 13,″ an EA spokesperson said when asked about the situation.
It seems that teams within the SPL are usually included due to a agreement with the league, therefore in order for Rangers to be included EA would have to negotiate a license separately.
Maybe I should start a petition.
