The game’s first year with a team is shaping up to be a great one for FIFA 19.
EA Sports announced today that the FIFA 19 beta will feature two brand new female teams and five new men’s teams in the first year.
EA’s new female team, the New Zealand-based team New Zealand Women’s Cricket, will be introduced at launch.
The team is designed to be more competitive than the team of the year and to give the player a deeper understanding of what it means to play for a top team.
It will feature the same players and styles as the men’s team, with a focus on the powerplay and the defensive side of the game.
New Zealand Cricket’s roster will include the likes of Brendon McCullum, Chris Lynn, Matt Hardie, Brendon Taylor, Matt Taylor, Peter Siddle, Michael Clarke, Brett Lee, and many more.
New York-based women’s cricket team, The Women’s Club, will feature four new female players, including three who will play the top roles on the New York side.
New Jersey-based cricket team The Eagles will be the newest addition to the New Jersey side.
The Eagles team will feature nine women, including five who will have the most responsibilities on the field, including captain and a skipper.
The teams will be playable in beta, but the game’s release will be delayed for the first two months of 2018.
There will be two women’s teams available for each player on the starting roster.
The game will also feature two new player options, one for a team’s starting XI, and one for an alternate starting XI.
All players will also have a customisable team emblem and a customised team number on their shirt.
Players will also be able to customize their own team emblem, as well as the colors and number of the team’s logo.
“The game has been in beta for more than a year and we’re very excited to bring this game to life with the new female and New Jersey players, but we need your help to get it out there as quickly as possible,” said EA Sports’ John Smedley.
“We want players to feel like they’re a part of the squad and to feel at home in the game and the new New York players will bring that excitement.”
The beta will also include a new customisable game mode that allows players to create their own customisation, team colours, and team number, as opposed to a game mode where the game will default to a preset one.

The New York women’s team will be joined by two New Jersey women, who will be announced in the next week.
Both New York and New York City are already home to New York Giants women’s players.
FIFA 19 will be available on November 11.
