Three New Stadiums are Included in FIFA 18, Including LA Galaxy's Stubhub Center

The folks at Gamesradar confirm there are at least three new stadiums included in FIFA 18, including an American stadium.

In a sizeable exclusive for fans obsessed with minor details, GamesRadar+ can confirm three new stadia for FIFA 18. LA Galaxy’s Stubhub Center, Brighton & Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium, and Huddersfield Town’s John Smith’s Stadium all join the line-up of real-life grounds for this year’s game.

The inclusion of the two English stadiums are far from a surprise since EA wants to have a fully authentic Premiere League experience, but the new American stadium is a welcome addition for MLS fans stateside. The stadiums from relegated Premiere League squads are also still in the game this year.

    Portland & Orlando way more deserving. LA has a rather boring family friendly atmosphere.

    It was probably added due to it being added in Madden for San Diego.

    I agree that other MLS teams are deserving of getting their stadium in FIFA (especially Portland), but that doesn't mean Galaxy isn't. Five-time champs and the most globally recognized team in MLS has to count for something.
    And I respectfully disagree about the atmosphere. Boring? No. Family friendly? Sure, but what's wrong with that?

    They are one of the great club in the states. Doesn't change the fact that the atmosphere in LA is dull.
    Globally recognized, eh. There is no one who doesn't know football that knows who LA Galaxy are. If they know football, they know quite a few clubs from MLS.
    its regional as well, where as most football fans from Italy are aware of NYCFC because of Pirlo, most people in Brazil know Orlando City because of Kaka, The Brithish isles & Galaxy for players like Keane & Beckham. Even bastian schweinsteiger in Chicago now.
    No one in Indonesia, Italy, South Africa etc. who doesn't watch football, if you say "do you know who LA Galaxy are?" are saying yes. If you say you know who Manchester United are? Barcelona? Real Madrid?" they're saying "ah yes i've heard of them." So you saying they're the most globally recognized team doesn't mean much or why they deserve a stadium in FIFA. Its only in because of Madden.
    & from the only actual study I found with any thought to it, has Seattle as by far the most searched team on the internet. Another just went off Social Media, and NYCFC is #1 there.

    Oh, I get that. But if that is the case, it's the same reason the Sounders' stadium is in. I'm not saying Seattle isn't deserved because it totally is, I even said so a few years back when they added it.
    And if that's the sole reason that the LA and Seattle stadiums are in, why do they not include Gillette Stadium for the Revolution? Could it be that they are a lower profile team and therefore not on the FIFA devs' radar? (Sorry Revs fans, just making a point here.)

    Are we basing this off of TV viewing or live attendance? Just curious.
    I was at the Sounders vs. Orlando City match in Seattle last week. The atmosphere was incredible, probably one of the best live sporting events I've ever been to. Does the Galaxy matchday environment rival that? Honestly, no. But at the same time, I've never been to a Galaxy match that I would describe as "boring" or "dull". LA sports crowds are generally more reserved than other areas of the country to begin with (unless it's the Lakers), but sitting in the Angel City Brigade or LA Riot Squad sections is always a good time, plenty of loud support there.
