Earning Victory Royales while wearing your favorite club's jersey will now be possible thanks to a partnership between Epic Games and some of the biggest football (soccer!) teams on the planet.

The ease with which Epic Games creates Fortnite skins through its partnerships is relentless. Following on from Star Wars and Marvel collaborations, it's time for football to take centre stage!

You'll find some of the most prestigious teams in the Champions League, as well as some other clubs that shine outside Europe. Here are all the clubs available:

  • Manchester City (England)
  • Juventus (Italy)
  • AC Milan (Italy)
  • Inter Milan (Italy)
  • AS Roma (Italy)
  • Seattle Sounders FC (USA)

Pelé Emote

Fortnite has also partnered with one of the game's most recognisable legends — Pelé — whose emote hits the Item Shop on January 23.

Pelé Cup

In addition to these cosmetics, Epic Games is organizing a competition open to all, which will of course take place in a game mode that suits football fans.

The Pelé Cup will be held on January 20, and the best players will have a chance to win the Kickoff Set and the Pelé emote for free. Those with the highest scores can even win a personalised, autographed jersey.


Play your own football tournament in Creative Mode

For the occasion, Epic Games has released a 4v4 game mode, available on the Creative Mode home page. Use your own body, harvesting tool, bonuses, gas pedals and more to try to score more points than your opponent.

Each game has two rounds — winners advance to the next round for the final, while losers compete for third place.

This is not the first time Fortnite has set foot in the world of sports in general, with the publisher having already collaborated with the NFL on a range of skins.
