EA Sports announces that FIFA 23 will bring back Juventus, after taking away the license from Konami. The Italian club will once again be 100% licensed (kits, stadium and icons) in the new installment of the football saga.
World football lovers are in luck. FIFA 23 has already been announced, confirming its covers (with the presence of soccer player Sam Kerr and Mbappé) and its release date. The new EA Sports will arrive on September 30.
Yes, remember that FIFA 23 will be the last installment of the saga developed by EA Sports. The 2024 edition will come from another company, while EA Sports FC continues its independent path.
FIFA 23 is a spectacle that will come to PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia. The good news is that, finally, the PC version will have all the next-gen improvements (something that bothered a lot in FIFA 22). For its part, on Nintendo Switch we will once again have a Legacy Edition.
FIFA 23 – Juventus Trailer
Although the FIFA saga has always been characterized by its breadth of licenses, for several years EA lost the rights to Juventus Football Club. It is a great European and Italian.
The reason? Konami took over the full license for Juventus (same case as with Camp Nou, FC Barcelona’s stadium), forcing EA to disguise the team under the name of Piedmont F.C..
If you’re a Juve fan or just want to play with the best teams, you’re in luck. EA has confirmed that FIFA 23 will bring back Juventus 100% licensed.
This implies that Juventus will be called as such in FIFA 23, and will also have their official kits. Of course, the acquisition of the rights also implies the presence of Juventus Stadium, its tifos and unique cosmetics.
”This phenomenal club means a lot to us and our fans, and will enable EA Sports to continue to deliver the most authentic and comprehensive interactive football experiences possible in FIFA 23 and beyond.”.
In addition, EA Sports confirms that the Juventus legend, Claudio Marchisio, will be part of the FIFA 23 FUT Heroes cards. The banners, chants and other details of the Italian club will also return.
In this way, Konami loses Juventus’ license for eFootball 2022. You will only be able to play with the real Italian club in FIFA 23, just as before you could only do it in PES/eFootball.
FIFA 23 will hit stores next September 30thavailable in PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia. EA confirmed a few days ago that Russian clubs (leagues and National Team) will not be in the game, as it already happened with FIFA 22.
