Everyone please go vote for the Cymru Premier to be added to FIFA 21! (listed as "Welsh League")
This could be massive for our national league.

In recent years EA Sports have added the German third tier and the Chinese Super League into the game, though clearly there are still plenty of remaining leagues that fans are keen to be playable.
Last year, there was even a petition for the Vanarama Conference to be included but it was ultimately unsuccessful.
Despite the above poll being a good indication of what fans want, it is worth noting the result will likely have no bearing on EA's decision.
FIFA 21 is slated for a worldwide release on 9 October.
