Napoli, recently clinched the coveted Serie A title, leaving fans asking a crucial question: Will they be in EA Sports FC 24? This stems from Napoli’s existing partnership with Konami, which adds a layer of uncertainty to their virtual presence.
Promising unparalleled authenticity, EA FC 24 holds the potential to deliver an immersive gaming experience. However, the omission of a club like Napoli could deal a severe blow to this promise.
So let’s dive in and discuss whether or not the Serie A champions will be part of EA Sports’ upcoming soccer title.
Will Napoli Be in EA FC 24?
Yes, Napoli will be in EA Sports FC 24; however, their official badges and kit may not feature in the upcoming game as well as their name being altered.
This is due to a pre-existing exclusivity agreement with eFootball creators Konami. Instead, in EA FC 24, it is likely we will see a generic crest and kits like in FIFA 23.
Luckily, this partnership with Konami does not stop the club from being in EA FC 24. SSC Napoli, as they are formally known, will instead be Napoli FC in EA FC 24.
Additionally, all of the club’s players will feature in the game, including Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. So EA Sports FC fans will only be missing out on the visual cosmetics of the club.
The duration of Napoli’s contract with Konami remains undisclosed, yet history shows that past collaborations, like the one with Liverpool, endured for a span of three years.
Liverpool’s partnership with Konami spanned from 2016 to 2019. Napoli, the reigning Serie A champions, are currently in the midst of their third year under this agreement.
Due to the absence of contract details, this simply remains speculative. Even if the current contract is concluding, the potential for Napoli to renew their partnership with Konami remains a viable option.
