FIFA 16 is out and we couldn't be happier!
Our yearly fix of virtual football has been well and truly served, and gamers all over the World are getting to grips with the changes that a new game brings.
There have been a few promising changes to FIFA 16 Career Mode, such as pre-season tournaments that can boost your transfer budget, and the ability to train specific players using skill gamnes, so we at Balls.ie have earmarked a few clubs who will ensure that your career mode is an eventful one.
Marseille - Ligue 1 - France
A great shout for a fun career mode for those who don't want to spend two or three seasons in the lower leagues first is Marseille. Firstly, you've got a cracking squad at your disposal already, and then there's the target of knocking PSG off their perch at the top. Can you make Marseille the next mega-money French powerhouse?
Key Players: Michy Batshuayi, Nicolas N'Koulou
Future Stars: Maxime Lopez, Stephane Sparagna
Real Oviedo - Liga Adelante - Spain
As shareholders in Real Oviedo, we had to suggest them. The boys are back in FIFA after some terrible financial troubles, and it's time to make them a major European power. We suggest trying to bring back former Oviedo boys Santi Cazorla and Juan Mata as you look to break into the big teams in Spain, but you'll be spending at least a year in the second tier first. An aging squad, you'll need to make this team your own with some young talent soon.
Key Players: Mamadou Kone, Hervías
Future Stars: Fernández,
RB Leipzig - Bundesliga 2 - Germany
They may not be the most popular team in Germany, but no other club will allow you to start in a lower division with a cool €15m in the bank. That's what you will get with RB Leipzig, apart from very cool jerseys, so with such financial clout you are expected to easily make your way to the Bundesliga and eventually end the Bayern dynasty. A really nice squad full of young talent.
Key Players: Willi Orban, Massimo Bruno
Future Stars: Davie Selke, Lukas Klostermann
Wigan Athletic - League One - England
If you want a good, long, FIFA 16 career mode, then League One side Wigan already have a side capable of promotion, but it will be up to you to steer them back to the Premier League. This is one for the serious career mode players as you will need to look to youth to build a successful team.
Key Players: Leon Barnett, Gavin McCann
Future Stars: Jordy Hiwula, Reece James
AC Milan - Serie A - Italy
Sleeping giants AC Milan are just crying out to be taken back to the glory days of a decade ago when they had players like Cafu, Nesta, Maldini, Seedorf, Gattuso, Pirlo, Inzaghi, and Shevchenko in their side. You could be the person to bring them back to Italian and European glory. You'll have some nice players in the squad already, but Juve will be difficult to topple. Are you up to it?
Key Players: Carlos Bacca, Jeremy Menez
Future Stars: M'Baye Niang, Suso
