Teams

Expect similar teams on the demo to last year where we had Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Roma, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and PSG to choose from. With Barcelona, Arsenal, Liverpool, AC Milan, Juventus & Inter Milan all having licensing agreements with Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer, don’t expect them to appear on the FIFA demo.
