In recent years EA has had some competition for exclusive naming rights for certain clubs, especially in Italy's top flight from Konami's eFootball game, who snapped up the rights to several Serie A sides in the past few years.
With EA's latest title soon to hit the shelves many fans are asking will their favourite Italian sides feature in the game with a more familiar look, and this includes the current reigning Champions of Italy, Napoli.
If you're sitting wondering if the Gli Azzurri will be featured in EA Sports' new flagship football title, then read on as we take a look at the rumours currently circulating to get you up to speed.
Will Napoli Be Licensed in EA FC 24?
With EA's recent divorce from football's governing body, every fan of the FIFA series is keen to know who will feature in the newest iteration of their favourite franchise. The official website states that the game is set to feature 19,000+ fully licensed players as well as 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums, and 30+ leagues from across the globe.
It is however yet to name specific teams although some clubs feature prominently in advertisements for the game so it can be assumed they will be included.
SCC Napoli is one team that has previously not been licensed due to an existing agreement with Konami and eFootball. This is why they were known as Napoli FC in FIFA 23. That being said there have been a few rumors which suggest this could yet change.
Napoli License Rumors, Explained
Many rumors are floating around that because of the separation of the two sporting giants, EA has been able to negotiate naming rights with clubs and had hoped to include the current Italian champions S.S.C. Napoli.
One serial leaker @FUTZONEFIFA on Twitter suggested that the Ciucciarelli would feature with full licensing and include face scans of the squad and 10 official stadiums.
Only a day later contrasting information was dropped by another well-known source in the form of @DonkTrading who tweeted "Napoli are NOT licensed in EAFC 24. The rumours they will be are not true."
So really it's no clearer as to whether S.S.C. Napoli will be licensed or not. Only time will tell. So stay tuned for updates.
