EA Sports announced this week that the newest edition of the FIFA series – FIFA 20, to be released worldwide on September 27 – would include some new faces in the Icons category, adding to the long list of soccer legends that have featured in the game in the past.
Among those new additions is legendary forward – and current Phoenix Rising FC co-owner and former player – Didier Drogba, whose presence was announced this week alongside that of former England legend Ian Wright and former Italy legend Andrea Pirlo.
It got us at USL Digital thinking about the Championship’s current players, and what things would look like if the league was part of the game. (We know, we’d love to make it happen for real.)
So, we picked out 11 players from across the league to make up a representative Championship FUT 11, complete with rankings compiled with input from clubs and in some cases the players themselves as well as our own assessments of where each player stands alongside his Championship counterparts.
You can find out more about each player ranking below, but we’re also interested to see what your FIFA Ultimate Team of USL Championship players would be for this season. We used an online calculator to devise each player’s overall rating, and an online card builder to create each image. You can download player headshots and team logos from the USL’s Photo Library.
There's the complete lineup, now let's meet the team one-by-one.
