Juventus will not be on FIFA 22 and will probably be re-branded as Piemonte Calcio. However, there is good news. The year 2022 is the last year of Konami’s exclusive agreement with the Juventus football club. We do not know the innermost details of the contract. This means that FIFA 24 is likely to have Juventus return as part of the franchise.
“We are particularly proud of the partnership signed with Konami,” said Giorgio Ricci, Chief Financial Officer, in a press release on July 16, 2019. “This partnership included exclusive access to the name, crest and official sets of the team that players wear each game.
