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.

How to download an Option File

Head to the relevant platform for the Option File and download the file of your choice onto your PC.

Save your downloaded files on your PC.

On your console, open up eFootball and head to Settings > Edit.

This should create "Edit Data", which will automatically make a folder for you to copy Option Files into.

On PC

On Steam, the folder can be found here: C:\Steam\steamapps\common\eFootball.

If you’re not playing on Steam, the folder location should look like this: My Documents > Konami > eFootball

Copy all files from the downloaded Option File directly into the file.

Open up eFootball and go to to Settings > Edit > Import/Export.

Accept the warning, and click on Import Team.

Hit the command shown to "Select All Files" when the list of files show up on the Select File screen.

After they’ve all been ticked, click through to Detailed Settings, leave all boxes unticked and press OK.

Neymar next cover star?

The official eFootball Twitter account, has announced that Neymar Jr has become the newest ambassador for the eFootball series.

This also means that Konami has secured the full rights to Neymar Jr in eFootball.

EA Sports has secured a partnership with Paris Saint Germain until 2024, which means that they will have the full license to the players, kits, badges, team name etc.

However, with Neymar becoming an eFootball ambassador, we could see Konami change its Cover Star strategy.

We believe that Neymar is now the front-runner to become the eFootball Cover Star, given the global scale of his fame, along with the exciting style of football he plays for European giants PSG.
