Football Federation Australia have remained unforthcoming regarding the inclusion of New Zealand FIFA 18 players for selection in its inaugural e-League draft, which commences at 6:30pm AEDT live tonight on the Hyundai A-League’s Facebook page.

When asked about the inclusion of NZ players, the FFA responded by saying that the draft is “quite a significant logistical exercise”, and that competitors will be announced tonight.

It’s an odd choice of words, and throws a spanner in the works regarding what will happen for New Zealand-based team Wellington Phoenix.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens tonight.
