EA confirms to remove 13 women player from FIFA 2016 due to NCAA rights. These players would be putting their eligibility for college sports at risk by including in FIFA 2016.

Ea said  “Of the hundreds of players on these rosters, 13 are currently attending or likely to attend NCAA-sanctioned schools in the US,” said the statement. “The NCAA recently informed EA Sports that these 13 student-athletes would be risking their eligibility for collegiate athletics by being included in FIFA 16.”

“We do not agree with this position. All rights were secured following standard protocol with national governing bodies and federations, and none of these NCAA student-athletes or potential student athletes were to be individually compensated by EA Sports for their inclusion in the game.”

The players that removed by FIFA 2016, here are the list of players who will no longer in the FIFA 2016 is below:

  • Kadeisha Buchanan, Canada

  • Jessie Fleming, Canada

  • Ashley Lawrence, Canada

  • Janine Beckie, Canada

  • Celia Jiménez, Spain

  • Tanya Samarzich, Mexico

  • Greta Espinoza, Mexico

  • Christina Murillo, Mexico

  • Amanda Perez, Mexico

  • Emily Alvarado, Mexico

We hope that this will make no difference in the game. FIFA 16 is releasing on Sep 22, 2015.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for further updates.
