After a rocky start to life after the name change, eFootball 2023 appears to be gathering momentum once more.
Several updates and fresh features have refined the game as a whole, leaving eFootball 2022 in the past!
Konami has recently announced the launch of their new fan-focused esports tournament 'Coppa eFootball Italia'. So, find out more about that and all the other features of eFootball 2023 below.
Latest - Coppa eFootball Italia
Featuring seven of Italy’s best clubs, the Coppa eFootball Italia tournament will see the integration of three different players forming teams of three to represent each of the competing clubs.
The teams will be made up of a selected youth team player, a professional esports player that is currently part of their existing squad and a club fan who wins an online qualification tournament.
The victorious club will take home a Grand Prize including a specialised eFootball multi-media and gaming centre to be installed at their youth training complex.

eFootball 2023 is now fully playable on mobile, which will be music to fans' ears after a long wait for the game to return to the platform.
Several general fixes have been made, including adjustments made to the stability of the software and graphics.
The v2.0.2 update also fixed a bug where players that are shown in the starting lineup are erroneously duplicated in the "Substitutes" and "Reserves" screens when using authentic teams in events.
Check out the full details on the v2.0.2 update.
Two former partners of Konami will return in eFootball 2023, with AC Milan and Inter Milan, the current holders of Italy’s top domestic league competition and cup competition respectively.
This will see the introduction to the clubs’ players, official kits, badges and the stadium that they share, the San Siro.
In an exclusive agreement, Liga BBVA MX will be implemented in the new season, bringing all 18 Mexican clubs to eFootball 2023.
Two new eFootball Player Ambassadors have also joined the roster, with Liverpool sensation Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester United midfield maestro Bruno Fernandes signing on.
Konami is set to implement a large-scale maintenance in November for the process of in-game asset carryover.
Following the large-scale maintenance, the majority of "Standard" players signed in eFootball 2022 will have their affiliations and photos updated.
In addition, players that are no longer available will be replaced with in-game items of equivalent value.
Epic card type explained
Back in September, Konami revealed the brand new card category that was to be added to the myClub mode in eFootball 2023... EPIC!
Epic cards are legendary players who have the potential for growth on top of their original rating, so they can remain among the best players in your club for the duration of the season.
The first three Epic cards were handed to players from one of eFootball's new partner clubs, Inter.
Wesley Sneijder (OVR 83), Dennis Bergkamp (OVR 82), and Lothar Matthaus (OVR 83) will all be available to use in the game.
Sice then, we've seen plenty of Epic cards added to the database including the Brazilians that you can see in the Tweet above.
