Konami made moves in late spring/early summer with partnerships with Italian sides AS Roma and Atalanta, leaving many to wonder what Italy’s top division would look like in FIFA 22. For FIFA 21, Serie A was the only major European domestic league without all of their teams licensed in the game and without the official broadcast package.
