Owned by Rob McElhenney and superstar Ryan Reynolds, the Welsh club have not appeared in the game since FIFA 08 after their relegation from the Football League.

But after mainstream attention following their shock takeover, they will now appear as a ‘Rest of the World’ team.

The Dragons, who play in the National League, the fifth tier of English football, are the only non-league team to be added to the game.

They have been joined in the by APOEL, Ferencvárosi and Croatian side Hajduk Split.

In the other addition to the game, the Indian Super League has been added with all 11 clubs fully licenced.

Elsewhere, EA have also announced an ‘exclusive’ partnership with Serie A, which will see them partner with 14 of the 22 clubs, with Atlanta, AS Roma, Juventus, Lazio and Napoli excluded to their agreement with eFootball.

The game will continue its steps into making the game as realistic as possible with the further introduction of six new stadiums. The Portuguese Primeira Liga's Estadio da Luz and Estadio da Drago, the home grounds of SL Benfica and FC Porto have been imported much to the delight of fans. Portugal's top flight has recently entered UEFA's top five leagues, displacing France's Ligue One, despite the glittering amount of stars who have joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Also added is the SchuoArena, home of Arminia Biefeld, as well as Cadiz's Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, as well as the Reale Arena, Real Sociedad's home pitch.

There will be a wait however for Brentford fans, who will be unable to play t the Brentford Community Stadium until January.

The Bees are enjoying their first season in the Premier League but similar to how Leeds United' supporters had to wait for Elland Road to be added in a title update.

EA Sports FIFA 22 is due to go on general sale on Friday 1st October.
