FIFA franchise publisher Electronics Arts has announced that it’s bringing South America’s biggest club tournament, CONMEBOL Libertadores, exclusively to FIFA 20 as a free content update in March 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
“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,” said CONMEBOL Commercial Director, Juan Emilio Roa.
Brazil has been picking up momentum as an esports market both in and outside games as the South American country continues to improve its bandwidth infrastructure. Several new subsea cables connecting into the country create more bandwidth and have allowed Brazilians to now play games and consume entertainment without the large lag spikes that used to keep them at a competitive disadvantage.
Players can compete using clubs from Uruguay, Perú, Paraguay, Ecuador, and others in several game modes such as FIFA Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Kick-Off, and a new CONMEBOL Libertadores Tournament Mode.
The Grand Final of the eLibertadores tournament will see the top eight competitors from both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One compete from March 7-8, 2020 for the chance to earn FIFA Global Series Points along with a $100K prize pool. More details on the tournament and how to register will be revealed in December.
