FIFA 20: PES strike another blow by landing exclusive deal for Brazil rights
After losing the Juventus license, it another big miss for EA Sports as PES 2020 make further moves.
Both the Brazilian top flight – the Brasileirao – and the second division, known as Serie B, will only appear on the Konami title this season, another loss for EA’s FIFA franchise.
The official ball of the Brasileirao has the Brazilian Football Confederation logo on it, suggesting that the national team could also be exclusive to Pro Evo. Last year neither FIFA or PES had the rights for the Selecao – with Neymar the only licensed player in their squad on FIFA 19.
It looks as if that is about to change.
This by no means the first lucrative deal for Pro Evo this summer, after landing the exclusive rights for eight-time defending Italian champions Juventus just last week.
The Juventus name, crest, kit and Allianz Stadium will only appear on PES 2020, the first time FIFA have lost the club in 25 years. On FIFA 20, they will now be known as Piemonte Calcio.
