I know, like you I have found myself playing FIFA Soccer 12 and feeling like something was missing. I wasn't quite sure what it was but it turns out that it was the Czech National Team. EA announced today that they have come to terms with the Football Association of the Czech Republic for a four-year licensing agreement. This deal will see their national team included in upcoming FIFA titles.

“Having the full national team, in the hugely popular FIFA series, with authentic jerseys and players, is a big win for Czech fans,” said Miroslav Pelta, President of the Football Association of the Czech Republic. “Seeing the team in the world’s most popular sports videogame in the coming years is something that will definitely build the connection between our team and our fans.”

“We’re very excited to bring stars of the Czech National Team into our games,” said Matt Bilbey, Vice President and GM of Soccer, EA Sports. “For all our fans that support and love Czech soccer, this will only add to the authentic FIFA experience they enjoy.”

No word yet if this means that the team will be in the upcoming FIFA Street. I would imagine if they couldn't get them on the disc at the last minute that the team would appear as free DLC. Either way, having more teams represented is always a good thing and I'm happy for our Czech Republic readers. Hopefully the team is rated well and I'll see a lot of them online later this year for FIFA Soccer 13.
