FIFA 22 will feature 16 officially licenced Serie A teams but teams like Juventus, Lazio and Rome will still have different names and unlicensed badges and kits.

EA Sports have officially announced a new partnership with Italian football league Serie A, which will bring "more of the unique characteristics of Italian football and each of its storied clubs to the game".

In the official announcement, EA reveal that the agreement also includes an all-new EA SPORTS Player of the Month. Furthrremo, EA Sports have been named Title Sponsor and Partner of Supercoppa Italiana which will be renamed EA SPORTS Supercup beginning with the 2022-23 season.
