The partnering agency also signed deals with 23 football clubs across 5 continents and 10 professional leagues. The leagues will also provide new female and male skins and official kits from the clubs which users can take as a purchase option in the Kickoff Set before it launches on January 23.

Head of Global Partnerships at Epic Games Nate Nanzer said,

“Global football is consistently one of the top sports that our players tell us they want to see and experience in Fortnite. We’re excited to partner with some of the world’s largest football clubs and icons like Pelé to bring ‘the beautiful game’ to Fortnite fans around the world as they face off in competitive tournaments, experience new creative modes of gameplay, and celebrate global football.”

A good opportunity for players

Players will get an opportunity to play with their favorite team kit. At the same time, they will get access to various animated emotional expressions called emotes, which will include a goal celebration similar to Brazilian legend Pele. Some of the most popular clubs in the list include Italian Serie A’s Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan and AS Roma, Scottish Premiership’s Rangers and Celtic, German Bundesliga’s VfL Wolfsburg, FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Monchengladbach.

US Major League Soccer teams Seattle Sounders, Los Angeles, and Atlanta United will be present as well. The international collaboration will help the players play with the kits of the premier football clubs from around the world.
