EA Sports announces FIFA 09 Clubs

Want to join a team of video game soccer fans and take on the best gamers around the world? Here's your chance as EA Sports reveled plans for FIFA 09 Clubs, a new online mode that enables gamers to join clubs of up to 50 people while fielding their strongest team in Be A Pro: 10 vs. 10 Online Team Play. In this mode, 20 people on 20 different consoles anywhere in the world can connect online and play a single match.

Clubs will be ranked based on total points and placed in a division based on performance during the season. In addition, the mode enables Club Managers to scout rival players to identify a gamer that fits his or her squad, then giving managers the opportunity to recruit the very best to their team.

Up to 10 layers on a club can participate in a single game and Clubs will even have the opportunity to split up and play multiple games simultaneously if they wish.
