UPDATE: FIFA 19 to Include UEFA Champions League

Update: EA Sports posted several Tweets during yesterday's UEFA Champions League final. This is another clear hint that they will have the Champions League licence in FIFA 19.

It seems we got confirmation that EA has indeed picked up the UEFA Champions League and Europa League licenses, which Konami announced they lost just last month.

Speaking on Dutch television, FIFA and Fox Sports commentator Evert ten Napel said the following:

"For about six or seven days a year, I record updated lines in the studio in Utrecht with Youri Mulder. In 2019 as well, the game will get even better, because they've added the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. I'm almost finished with the 2019 version, which will then go to the test centre, some very good players will check everything and after that, it will go to the stores in October. And then all those weirdos will be standing in line again at midnight."

As you can see it's all but confirmed that the Champions League will return to FIFA after almost 10 years. An official announcement from EA Sports could be coming as soon as at E3 next month, so stay tuned for updates on this story.
