eFootball Seasons explained

A "Season", which will run for a limited period, will have a theme for the events users can play in using their Dream Team.

Each Season's theme will be based around current topics in the real footballing world, bringing with it a wide variety of events to take part in.

There are Challenge Events for users to play against other users, or Tour Events for users to go up against the AI.

Signing players and assembling a team that matches the Season's theme can give users an advantage in these events.
