The first trailer for EA Sports’ FIFA16 was released on Monday, and it teased the potential addition of another MLS stadium.

The only MLS venue that has been in the popular video-game series in recent years is the Vancouver Whitecaps’ BC Place, but the trailer for FIFA16 looks to show the introduction of CenturyLink Field. While there is no confirmation that the Seattle Sounders’ home will be in the upcoming version of the game, the brief – and darkened – glimpse of the stadium looks exactly like CenturyLink Field, especially when you notice¬†the downtown backdrop.

MLS fans who play FIFA have for years been clamoring for more of the league’s stadiums to be added to the game. FIFA has never been one to completely ignore gamers’ requests, and it appears that at least one more MLS venue will be in this year’s version of the hit video game.

Take a look at FIFA16’s snazzy first trailer and let us know if you agree that the stadium in question (at the 0:21 mark) is CenturyLink Field:

FIFA16 hits stores across North America on Sept. 22 on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3 console. The game will also be available for PC.

  1. I like everyone want more MLS stadiums and CCL too.

    Zero doubt that is the CLink.
    They have to have the best stadium in the world and now ( finally) I guess they will.

    Nicely done. Can’t wait for FIFA 16 to come out.

  2. I would hope that more MLS stadia make it into the game. Sporting KC Park, BMO Field, PPL Park, would all be great additions.

      • Then hopefully future stadiums; DC @ Buzzard Point, Orlando City on Church, LAFC @ the Coliseum. All are going to be awesome stadiums.

  3. Been waiting for expansion sides in FIFA for a while now…can’t wait…now we just need some CONCACAF Champions’ League and I’ll be a happy gamer.

    • To have a complete CONCACAF Champions League, they need to add about 4-5 domestic leagues into the mix. Honestly, I would pay an extra $20 if I got 15-20 moredomestic leagues as DLC to have a truer representation of the global soccer landscape.

      • Looks like the two of you need to check into the pc version. More than enough mods to cover just about whatever you need. Even if not, there are people creating and updating mods all of the time. With that, and the ability to play with a usb controller, it’s usually a better and less expensive experience than consoles now days…
