One of the most prestigious soccer tournaments in South America, CONMEBOL Libertadores, will be added to FIFA 20 as part of a major update that will come early next year.
CONMEBOL Libertadores in FIFA 20
As part of a free content update in March 2020, CONMEBOL Libertadores will be available to FIFA 20 players. CONMEBOL Libertadores will be available for FIFA 20 players on the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Players will be able to compete with historic teams and players from clubs in Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Ecuador in FUT, Career Mode, and Kick-Off mode.
In addition to those three modes, FIFA players can also use those teams in a brand-new mode called “CONMEBOL Libertadores Tournament Mode.” Players in the new mode can “follow in the footsteps of some of the top players to lead teams like River Plate, Boca Juniors, Flamengo, Corinthians, and Colo-Colo through the heated competition of South American club football while playing the CONMEBOL Libertadores, CONMEBOL Sudamericana and CONMEBOL Recopa competitions.”
Juan Emilio Roa, the CONMEBOL Commercial Director, said that he believes that this agreement between the prestigious tournament and EA will be a great way to further reach soccer fans. “This alliance with EA, one of the largest video game companies, is a major step forward for the worldwide dissemination and image of South American football. Thanks to this agreement, our tournaments, clubs and players will have greater reach and recognition among the football fans who will have a whole new way to follow their heroes.”
In addition to the addition of CONMEBOL Liberatores, a new eSports tournament is headed to FIFA. The tournament will be called “eLibertadores”, and will allow South-American based players to compete in FIFA 20. The Grand Final of eLibertadores will be held from March 7-8, 2020, as the top eight players from both the PS4 and Xbox One consoles will compete for FIFA Global Series points and $100,000 USD prize pool. More details on the tournament will be released next month.
