FIFA 20 Copa Libertadores Release Date: Patch Update coming to Career Mode, Ultimate Team, ICONs & more
EA have just announced that the new South American licences are coming in the next update!
The biggest update since the start of FIFA 20 is set to take place TODAY!
For the first time ever, South America’s equivalent of the Champions League, the Copa Libertadores, will arrive in the EA Sports smash.
We take a look at everything we know about the upcoming download.
The day before the expected update, EA appeared to accidentally tweet to the official FIFA account that Argentinian legend, Juan Riquelme, will be joining FUT.
Luckily for us, one Reddit user posted a screenshot of the tweet on the FIFA sub-Reddit, which they grabbed before EA could delete the tweet.
Riquelme, nicknamed El “Topo Gigio” for his famous celebration, is a five-time Argentinian Champion and four-time Argentinian footballer of the year.
Evidently, the Boca Juniors legend is more than deserving of a FUT Icon card.
