FIFA 19: The Champions and Europa leagues are DEFINITELY in FIFA 19

It was only a matter of time

FIFA 19 will feature the Champions and Europa Leagues, according to a leak from a commentator who works on the series.

Fox Sports commentator Evert ten Napel expressed his excitement at the addition of both competitions for FIFA 19.

He said: “For about six or seven days a year, I record updated lines [for the game] in the studio in Utrecht with Youri Mulder [another commentator].

“In 2019 as well, the game will get even better, because they’ve added the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

“I’m almost finished with the 2019 version, which will then go to the test center ] some very good players will check everything and after that, it will go to the stores in October.

“And then all those weirdos will be standing in line again at midnight.”

Last month Konami and UEFA confirmed the partnership came to an end after a mutual understanding.

Konami and UEFA had enjoyed a close relationship since the original agreement was signed in 2009.

The last deal allowed Konami to use all iconography and presentation elements associated with the competitions exclusively within the PES series.
