How do you get real teams on PES 2022?

A handful of real teams will already be in PES, as Konami has been working hard to secure the rights to several giant European clubs.

Current PES licensed clubs

As things stand, Konami still has deals in place with plenty of footballing heavyweights.

The flagship club is Juventus, who do not appear in any other game thanks to their agreement with Konami.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich have also been strong flagbearers for PES over the years, with both club's stadiums - the Nou Camp and Allianz Arena, exclusive to PES 2021.

If they were to secure another exclusive club, one of these would be the most likely - but whether Konami can get around EA's deals with La Liga and the Bundesliga remains to be seen.

Despite losing deals for AC Milan and Inter Milan last year, Konami did manage to secure AS Roma on an exclusive deal, with Lazio now also a partner club for the PES brand.

And most recently have signed an exclusive partnership with Atalanta.

Similar deals are in place for English giants Manchester United and Arsenal, but an exclusive deal here is pretty much impossible due to EA's relationship with the Premier League.

GLOBE TROTTING - You can even download clubs that aren't even on the game

That means you cannot use an Option File on Xbox consoles. This is because they are not compatible with third-party files, unlike PlayStation.
