PES 2020 Option File: How to download ALL the official club kits, badges, team names, stadiums, licensed leagues & broadcast packages on PS4 & PC

Here's how you can bring more authenticity to the new Konami game this year.


PES 2020 is still a way off EA Sports’ FIFA when it comes to licences, which holds back the tightest football game battle in years.

The Konami game hit the shelves on 10 September, but for some gamers the lack of official clubs is the core reason on why FIFA outsells Pro Evo year on year.

Last year, the game lost UEFA rights for the Champions League and Europa League to FIFA 19, but did add the Russian, Argentinian, Danish, Portuguese, Swiss, Scottish and Belgian leagues to its list of licences. But Konami have been fighting back this year, striking an exclusive deal with Juventus.

So, if you are looking to play with the official kits and crests of Premier League heavyweights such as Chelsea and Manchester City, or European giants Real Madrid, they won’t be on PES 2020. There is a solution, however.

Konami have a feature on PES that makes it possible to download an option file to add the league names, team names and kits that are missing on the game.

What is an option file?

An option file, or patch, is created by an independent party, and can be downloaded on the game to add items that are missing. Games such as PES and Football Manager can have option files added to them to bring the kits, crests and branding they do not have the licence for.

What platforms is the option file available on?

You can download an option file for PES 2020 on PlayStation 4 and PC. Due to the inability to transfer files off a USB drive on Xbox One, you will not be able to add the licenses.

How to download the option file

On your computer, look for an option file through your browser. PES World provide option files for each league (pesworld.co.uk/ps4-downloads) with PES Patch also rolling out downloads (pes-patch.com/category/pes-2019-patch).
