For months and months Atlanta United fans have wondered when their club would be added into FIFA 17 as a playable team. When Orlando City and NYCFC came into the league they were promptly added to FIFA 15 as soon as the season started. Yet here we are more than two weeks into the season and Atlanta nor Minnesota United have been added.
However, there is some good news for anyone hoping to play with a Five Stripes player in the game. Josef Martinez is now available in Ultimate Team as he was awarded an in-form card this week for his hat trick on Sunday. Aside from the club’s badge being available in FUT, this is the only other sign of Atlanta United in the game.

For those new to Ultimate Team, this means that Martinez’s special card will be available in packs for the next week only. If you cannot pack him, you can buy his card on the transfer market.
