I know EA are impossibly difficult to contact for a multinational organisation, so I apologise that I've had to post this on here.
FIFA 18 needs the National League, with all the cup success that Lincoln City and Sutton United have had in the FA Cup it now makes a mockery of FIFA's FA career mode cup. The fact that one team in the last 8 of competition is not in the game is ridiculous and that albeit however unlikely that could be two teams in the last 8 by monday night. The inclusion of the league would also add in general to the FA cup in the game, as it would allow for some real giant killings to occur.
Furthermore, it would massively add to the bottom of League 2 and the fight to stay in the football league, as well as allow for so many more people to have their local side in the game. It would also add a new feature in trying to get teams promoted into the football league. These teams aren't small "sunday league" teams either, Tranmere Rovers, Lincoln City, Wrexham, Chester, Maidstone United, York City, Eastleigh, Aldershot Town, Torquay United, Forest Green Rovers, Sutton United, Macclesfield Town, Woking, Barrow, Dover Athletic and Dagenham & Redbridge have massive crowds for level 5 of a pyramid system. Yes there are a 2 or 3 very small sides (Braintree, North Ferriby and Boreham Wood) but the league as a whole is massively strong and would complete the English league.
These aren't awful players with two left feet either, yes some times the players can't perform for 46 games a season, but they can produce moments of world class like any other player, and it's only the consistency that often allows them not to go higher into league football. It would amazing to develop players and do a "Vardy" and get players hanging around in non league football to go to being champions of England and playing the premier league and for their country in international football.
If you wanted to go even further you could add the North and South divisions as particularly the North is so strong this season. I'm sure in particular a lot of people would love to play as Salford City the side owned by the class of 92, but you also have Stockport County, FC United of Manchester, FC Halifax Town, AFC Fylde, Kidderminster Harriers, Darlington, Chorley, Altrincham, AFC Telford United, Boston United and in the South Ebbsfleet United and Dartford who all have big followings and would surely get many locals playing as their side in the game.
I know that FIFA fans can't have everything all at once, but I really do think the addition of at least the National League Premier is a must for FIFA, I'm sure if Lincoln and Sutton were in the game many would be trying to recreate their shocks against Oldham, Ipswich, Brighton, Burnley, Cheltenham, AFC Wimbledon, Leeds and (potentially) Arsenal. So please FIFA make this happen!
