FIFA 23 will feature the largest lineup of licensed leagues, clubs and stadiums in the series to date, featuring iconic teams from around the world. Here are all the new licenses confirmed in FIFA 23 so far.
As FIFA 22 begins to wind down, attention is turned to what EA Sports has in store for FIFA 23. Fans have high hopes for the sequel after the publisher promised to make the best FIFA game ever before rebranding the series as EA Sports FC .
We expect a lot of big improvements on the gameplay side of things, but players are always interested to see which iconic clubs and stadiums join the ever-expanding roster.
A handful of new licenses have already been confirmed, so we’ve rounded up all the new FIFA 23 leagues, clubs and stadiums that we know of so far.
FIFA 23 new leagues
FIFA 23 marks the first time women’s club football has appeared in the series.
FIFA 23 marks the debut of a number of leagues never before seen in the series, 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 expanded in any game since.
Renowned 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 competition will be playable at launch.
Here’s every new league we know of in FIFA 23. Leaked divisions are marked with an asterisk:
- FA Women’s Super League (England)
- Division 1 Arkema (France)
- Vanarama National League (England)*
While players will be excited about the new playable leagues, unfortunately both the J-League and Liga BBVA MX will be leaving this year after Konami secures their eFootball licenses.
Juventus have been known as Piemonte Calcio since FIFA 20, but they are back in FIFA 23.
In the months leading up to FIFA 23, leakers have steadily revealed a large number of clubs that were not present in FIFA 22. Donk Trading tweeted on June 3, claiming that one of Italy’s greatest teams will return.
Meanwhile, with the World Cup content coming to FIFA 23, FUT22News believes that a large number of international teams have a coming back. In fact, every team that has qualified for the final in Qatar is expected to show up.
Here’s every new team expected in FIFA 23 so far:

FIFA 23 new stadiums
Real Valladolid CF’s Zorilla Stadium will make its debut in FIFA 23.
Stadiums matter a lot to make the FIFA series feel like the best recreation of the beautiful game. The opportunity to step onto the grass of one of the most iconic arenas in the world adds to the immersion in a big way.
Fortunately, in FIFA 23, we’ve added even more spectacular locations to the lineup, as well as some returning favorites. One of the biggest changes is the first appearance of the homes of Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers.
These grounds are assigned to their respective clubs in Career Mode, and in most cases are also made available for use in Ultimate Team.
- La Bombonera (Boca Juniors)
- Europa-Park Stadium (SC Freiburg)
- Allianz Stadium (Juventus)
- Banc of California Stadium (LA FC)
- El Sadar Stadium (CA Osasuna)
- Zorilla Stadium (Real Valladolid)
- Philips Stadium (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 a comeback after being an eFootball exclusive for a few years. EA has also announced a partnership with the MLS that will add more official stadiums from the US, but we’re still waiting to see which ones have been selected.
