The Champions League and the Europa League are expected to be featured on FIFA 19 after EA Sports snapped up the license from Konami.

Last month, UEFA announced it had ended their decade-long working relationship with the Japanese gaming company, leading fans to speculate it could be coming to rivals EA Sports.

And the news seems to have been confirmed by Dutch television commentator Evert ten Napel, who revealed Europe’s elite cup competitions would be coming to FIFA 19.

In an interview with Dutch TV, Evert said “For about six or seven days a year, I record updated lines in the studio in Utrecht with Youri Mulder.

“In 2019 as well, the game will get even better, because they’ve added the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.”

He went on to reveal the game would come out in October, before seemingly taking a swipe at FIFA fans: “It will go to the stores in October. And then all those weirdos will be standing in line again at midnight.”

It is widely expected fans of the hugely popular gaming series can get their first glimpse of the new FIFA 19 at E3 2018 in Los Angeles.

Currently, fans of Career Mode on FIFA have to make do with the 'Champions Cup' and the 'Euro League' - their unofficial versions of the UEFA competitions.
