No Juve in FIFA: Juventus Announce Exclusive PES 2020 Deal
Juventus today became the latest official PES 2020 Partner Club, joining the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
Unlike with the aforementioned clubs, the new Juventus Pro Evolution Soccer deal is exclusive, which means we won't see the club's real name, kit or stadium included in FIFA 20.
Juventus' iconic Allianz Stadium is exclusive to the game and was faithfully recreated by Konami.
Many key players from the club were 3-D scanned to ensure maximum authenticity.
Pjanic Becomes PES 2020 Ambassador
Joining the likes of Lionel Messi, Scott McTominay and Serge Gnabry, midfielder maestro Miralem Pjanic was chosen as the latest PES 2020 Ambassador.
The PES 2020 Demo, which will include Juventus alongside the other Partner Clubs, will be available in two week's time, on July 30th.
