Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) have acquired the right to Juventus, meaning that FIFA 20 will not have the official kit or logo of the famous club, they will be known as "Piemonte Calcio" in the new FIFA game.

Fifa 20 will not feature Juventus, after Konami, the games company that makes Pro Evolution Soccer 2020, signed an exclusive deal with the club. Players of Fifa 20 will instead have to search for "Piemonte Calcio" if they want to play as Juventus.

According to EA Sport, "Real-world players, including authentic names & faces, will still be used in the Piemonte Calcio squad throughout FIFA 20 & FIFA 20 Ultimate Team."

Piemonte Calcio will have its own badge and kit, designed by EA Sports. This will be the first time in 25 years that Fifa will not hold the licence for the Serie A champions.

This will not be the first time this ias happening as PES also does not have rights to Manchester City, Chelsea etl, whereby know as Manchester Blue, London FC respectively. Also, EA Sports has missed out on the licence to super stars such as Ronaldo back in Fifa 99, where he was replaced by a suspiciously similar Brazilian called A Calcio.

Prior to this right, in PES 2019 Juventus were known as PM Black White. Whether this latest development is the first step in a new direction is unclear - but it marks the first time that PES has got one over on its rival with a major licence.

Meanwhile, Fifa 20 has announced its own "long-term" partnership with Liverpool FC, which comes after Konami announced their contract with the Champions League winners had come to an end.
