Petition: Addition of Indian Super League (ISL) teams in FIFA 17
This petition had 152 supporters
The first and second editions of Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) have exploded into life and opened a new chapter for Indian football, sizzling across the television screens of 429 million Indian viewers on the opening week, making it yet another milestone in the history of Indian sport.
The ISL has a larger attendance record than the Serie A and is only behind the Bundesliga, the La Liga and the Barclays Premier League in attendance, making it the fourth largest league in the world by average attendance.
Modern day superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had expressed support for North East United FC (the Highlanders) and wished for the league's success. Legends of the game like former Chelsea and Arsenal striker Nicolas Anelka, Brazilian and Real Madrid great Roberto Carlos, former Barcelona winger and Portuguese forward Simao and Juventus and Fiorentina forward Adrian Mutu are playing in the second season of this hugely successful league.
With some of the game's greatest players such as Alessandro Del Piero, Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg featuring in the league and great names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Fabio Cannavaro backing the league for success, it seems almost certain that the Indian Super League is inevitably going to change the way the game is treated in India.
Just imagine yourself playing with legend cards in your team or building an Indian career with future superstars. There is no doubt about the number of FIFA players India has and FIFA and EA Sports would be missing out on hundreds of thousands if they skip this league. It would be great to see this league featured in the next edition of FIFA as it would give players an opportunity to experience the birth of a footballing nation in one of the most beloved video games of all time as well as in real life.
This issue is very personal to almost all of the thousands of FIFA gamers in India and adding the ISL to the game will be greatly appreciated.
This move is bound to be success as it is clearly visible that people want to be able to enjoy this league in the game. There have been hundreds of attempts to recreate this league on the previous generation of consoles (Playstation 3 and Xbox 360) via Creation Centre and it can be considered evidence for the same.
I implore you to sign this petition as it not only will touch the lives of millions all around the world but will also go a long way in paving a road to glory for Indian football.
