Petition to Include NASL/USL Teams on FIFA 11 from EA Sports
BRING USL/NASL TEAMS TO FIFA 11 by EA Sports!!
Although the USL-1 and NASL leagues should make a clean split to form separate leagues after this season, the teams comprising both future leagues have shown their ability to play at a very high level. Although these leagues are considered to be a level down from Major League Soccer, the supposed drop-off in "quality of play" is actually quite diminutive. Teams such as Carolina RailHawks FC have played against and defeated MLS teams and English Championship squads in friendly competitions. The Puerto Rico Islanders have been very successful in CONCACAF tournaments facing FMF and MLS teams.
Considering the fact EA Sports includes English leagues such as Coca-Cola league 1 and even Coca-Cola league 2 (most of the league 2 teams would not qualify for the play-offs against USL/NASL level talent), we believe the USL/NASL should be given the attention and respect it deserves from EA Sports. Even in smaller markets, the support for these squads is very strong. The thought of seeing experienced and younger players like Gregory Richardson(Carolina RailHawks FC), Martin Nash(Vancouver Whitecaps/brother of NBA star Steve Nash), and Noah Delgado (Islanders) in FIFA 11 would be very exiting for us avid supporters who would love to have their local heroes going up against the best talent in the world. You could even have sibling rivalry with Gordon Kljestan (Tampa Bay Rowdies) going up against his brother Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA)!!
Let your voices be heard! Support the beautiful game from the grass-roots level upward... and on a personal note... LET'S GO RAILHAWKS!!!
