Is the Copa Libertadores the only new tournament?

No! EA have also announced that Copa Sudamericana and Recopa Sudamericana will be coming to FIFA 20 as part of the update.

The Recopa Sudamericana is similar to the UEFA SuperCup in that the winners of Copa Libertadores will face off against the winners of Copa Sudamericana.

Bringing Boca Back?

With EA stating that players will be able to lead team like River Plate, Boca Juniors, Flamengo, Corinthians, and Colo-Colo through the competition, is this a confirmation that Boca Juniors will be returning to FIFA 20?

The Argentinian club are currently named Buenos Aires on FIFA 20, with PES 2020 holding the licensing rights to the Boca Juniors franchise.

Not to mention their groundbreaking agreement which sees the Thai League make its first appearance on any computer game and Konami’s confirmation that they have secured the rights to Euro 2020, with the full tournament being a DLC for PES 2020.

Perhaps EA’s latest FIFA 20 announcement is a hit back at Konami in their ongoing licensing war?
