Strikerz Inc. continues to build on its newest football title with more licensing agreements. So far, UFL has struck deals with West Ham United, and has appointed two UFL ambassadors in Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Now, the Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon is the newest addition to UFL‘s growing line-up. The news was broken via Twitter, with UFL and Sporting both announcing their partnership this morning. However, information about this specific partnership is unknown at the moment; Sports Gamers Online has reached out to Strikerz Inc. but has yet to hear a response.

Sporting Lisbon and UFL’s Partnership
This year, UFL was announced during Gamescom via trailer. UFL’s trailer featured West Ham United and a stunning image of London Stadium. Since London Stadium is home to West Ham United, we can only speculate that Sporting Lisbon’s Stadium, Estádio José Alvalade, is in the game along with the club logo and name.
The José Alavade Stadium was built in 2003 and was named after José Alavade, one of the first club’s members. The stadium has featured in the eFootball PES series due to its licensing with Konami. However, the stadium is not in Konami’s newest eFootball game; hopefully, we will see a return of the stadium in UFL.
More UFL News?
While the little spets of news give us a good idea of what Strikerz Inc.’s intentions are with UFL, fans are still asking for gameplay. The official UFL Twitter account has hinted that more information is coming about the game. However, fans are eager for a new football game to rival EA’s FIFA franchise after eFootball’s rocky launch.
