FIFA 15 Neymar in, Ronaldinho out

We have some important FIFA 15 news to bring you now, especially if you are a fan of Brazilian football. While most of you are looking forward to seeing Neymar Jr at Barcelona in the game, it looks like another Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho won’t be included.

This week we can confirm that EA Sports has been unable to reach a deal to secure the Brazilian domestic league in FIFA 15. This is really bad news for some FIFA 15 ultimate team players as it means that Ronaldinho who has been playing for Atlético Mineiro may not be included in the game.

This can also apply to other exciting Brazilian players such as Pato and Jadson who also play in the Brazilian league. A statement by EA has been released and we can show it to you in full:

“Today, we want to inform you that due to some changes in the ways players are licensed in Brazil domestic leagues, we were unable to reach an agreement with the Brazilian rights holders for their inclusion in FIFA 15. While this is unfortunate news for many of our fans, we were able to retain the Brazil National Team in FIFA 15 as well as the Brazilian stars that play in other top leagues around the world.”

Fortunately, we will still get the Brazil national team in FIFA 15 so rest assured you’ll be able to select Neymar Jr and Coutinho in their Brazil shirts when FIFA 15 arrives.

The news has already hit fans on social media though, take a look at some of the initial reaction that we have seen so far.

There’s still a possibility that a FIFA 15 Ronaldinho Legend card may still come out, so hopefully EA can make this happen before Autumn. Ronaldinho still has the skills in our opinion and it would be a sad day if he isn’t included in FIFA 15.

Would you still have Ronaldinho in your FIFA 15 Ultimate Team? Let us know your thoughts on this news and if you are surprised that EA was unable to secure the license. It’s not through a lack of money surely – they could probably pay for the Brazilian league thanks to your Gold pack openings alone.
