The major European leagues may be well underway with all the top sides already battling for early advantages, but there’s still plenty of time for you to get your pre-season training in ahead of the new FIFA Interactive World Cup campaign, which begins on 1 December.

For most European football fans, the summer break requires plenty of patience. After weeks of intense anticipation, the long wait finally reaches its conclusion in mid to late August as the leagues kick off across the continent. Clubs are keen to show they have strengthened in the right areas and, even after just a few games, fans begin to identify which clubs are likely to justify their favourites’ tag, which will fall short, and which pose the greatest threat to the status quo.

FIWC12 begins on 1 December 2011
The summer break lasts a little longer for the FIFA Interactive World Cup, with the new season set to begin on 1 December 2011. That means there’s still plenty of time to practise ahead of the big kick-off. So fire up your Playstation®3 and load up your copy of EA SPORTS™ FIFA 12!
