Play the FIFA 12 Xbox 360 Official EPL Talk League

If you have a fix for soccer and can’t wait for your side’s next match, do the next best thing and join your fellow EPL Talk readers from around the world in the FIFA 12 league. The format is going to be the same with each team playing the other teams twice.

To join the league, please follow the directions below after starting up the game.

  1. Select XBOX Live
  2. Select Custom Games
  3. Select Online Leagues
  4. Select Join a League
  5. Search for “EPLTalk” as the league name or “EPLT” as the abbreviation
  6. Select the league and confirm you want to join

The only stipulation is that users that join must pick a English league club. Also be considerate of the fact that a league full of Manchester United and Chelsea is quite boring. While no specific quota will be placed, users that pick a club that is already very well represented may be removed. Also, any users picking a club outside of the English leagues will also be removed from the league.

League nights will be Wednesdays from 8PM to 10PM (EST) and I encourage people to play at least one or two games per week. If you don’t play a league match for a few weeks, you’ll be considered out of the competition and removed to free up a spot for someone else.

Unlike last year, there will only be one league and it is on a first-come-first-served basis (no password). There is a limit of 32 teams and these spots will be filled as users join. Don’t worry if you don’t get a spot right away! Spots will open all the time with users dropping out or being removed – keep checking back!

Feel free to contact me at gjhunt(at)gmail(dot)com or by sending a message to the gamertag “Zombie Gaz” with any questions or for help joining the league. Or you can post suggestions in the comments section below.

And if you don’t own FIFA 12 yet, what are you waiting for? Order your copy today.

Have fun and I hope to play a lot of your guys soon!

Editor’s note: If any of you are interested in playing in an official EPL Talk league for FIFA 12 on the PS3 and/or PES 2012 for Xbox 360, please let me know in the comments section. And if there’s enough of a demand, we’ll set those up.

  1. I’d be interested in playing in the xbox league, but I’m on the west coast and league night starts too early for me. Regardless, good idea and good luck; keep us posted on how it goes.


    1. The league night is really just a suggested time-slot for people to get on XBL to have lots of users available for league matches.

      You can still join and probably find one or two users on any night of the week.

  2. i have xbox gold but when i want to join the league i get this message:

    “your gamer profile does not have the correct permissons to access this feature”


  3. We have had an EPL Talk league going since the beginning of FIFA 11. We have a strong core of guys that play regularly and it is a ton of fun. I let the guy who runs the league know that there are more people looking to play in the league and he will probably post here soon for the details on how to join, etc.

  4. It doesn’t show who has picked what teams when i Joined , so i stuck to my blues which i think might be taken more than once , can we switch teams after we join ?

    1. No worries – there will probably be more than one of a few clubs. As long as it doesn’t get to silly numbers, it won’t be a problem. I’d like as many people be able to represent the club they support but if it does get to too much, it’ll be whoever got there first.

      I’d suggest that anyone that joins post-Wednesday assume that the popular clubs (Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, etc) are all well taken and pick a different club.

      Also, remember that all English league clubs are welcome! Leeds United? West Ham United?

  5. I’ll need an invite. LiveID is igor bobo. I’ll play with west ham. I’m a Liverpool fan but I understand the need. and…. ILL BEAT YOU PANSIES ANYWAY

  6. I changed my gamertag to “Gazont” so please message that user on XBL with questions or for help. “Zombie Gaz” won’t work anymore.

  7. When searching for the league it says that there are no leagues that meet the criteria….if spots are still open, send an invite to Lscpunk111

      1. Hey, I just searched several times…I cant find it either.

        I found it last week…if it’s full would you guys consider starting another one?

        1. Hmm.. I just checked it and the abbreviation didn’t work this time. Let me check with the GM (Gaz) to see what;s up. Stay tuned.

          The Gaffer

          1. I’ll check this afternoon but I have no idea why it wouldn’t show up.

            The only thing I can think of is that EA hides leagues that are full (as you can’t join them anyway). I didn’t think the league was full but it may be by now.

            Worst comes to worst, list your gamertag for me on this post and I’ll send you an invite.

  8. EA doesn’t make this as easy process.

    My best guess is the one I previously mentioned – that leagues that are full do not show up anymore on the search results.

    The league was full but, as I mentioned in the post, I will remove players that don’t play or break the club selection rule. I just kicked one person out for picking Real Madrid and about four people due to too many people playing as one club.

    Harry, I sent you a friend request as I can only invite friends to the league – I’ll send you a invite the next time a spot frees up but it might just be quicker to keep checking as I indicated in the post. There’s currently about six or seven spots.

    A general announcement for the league is do not choose Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, or Tottenham. You will be removed from the league immediately.

    If your one of the ones kicked, I apologize but you obviously picked a club that you knew would be more than taken (and was). Feel free to rejoin with a club other than those I just listed.

    Hope to play a few matches tomorrow night with a few of you! Other than a few clubs that have multiple representation, we have a good selection from the league!

  9. As far as the opening another league question:

    I had three (!) leagues last year due to the high demand at the initial opening – it ended up being too much. I think that one league (32 players) is more than enough after a month or so and only the people that are really interested are left.

    If you are one of those people that aren’t interested in a full league but still want to play occasionally EPLTalk readers, you can post your gamertag here and ask for game invites for the random one-off match or two.

  10. Hey guys , it is nice to see some old timers from last years league and some fresh faces.

    Hey Gaz , didn’t we have a website last time around for the league ?
