FIFA 15 doesn't have Brazilian domestic teams, EA has announced.

This is due to changes to the way players are licensed in those leagues, EA wrote in an update on the EA Sports website, without going into detail.

But what if I play for Stoke?

This is a change from FIFA 14, which does include officially licensed Brazilian teams, and it means players such as Pato, Kaka and Ronaldinho probably won't be in the game (a lot can happen in football player transfer land between now and when FIFA 15 comes out in September).

The Brazil national team is in there though, and Brazilian players who play in other leagues.

"Today, we want to inform you that due to some changes in the ways players are licensed in Brazil domestic leagues, we were unable to reach an agreement with the Brazilian rights holders for their inclusion in FIFA 15," EA said.

"While this is unfortunate news for many of our fans, we were able to retain the Brazil National Team in FIFA 15 as well as the Brazilian stars that play in other top leagues around the world. Thanks for your understanding as we continue to keep the lines of communication open with the Brazilian rights holders."

EA had the official license for 19 Brazilian football clubs for FIFA 14, including Palmeiras, Santos, Săo Paulo and Vasco da Gama.
