FIFA 16 Vs PES 2016 for Champions League

By Alan Ng - Jun 12, 2015

The battle between FIFA 16 and PES 2016 is about to start, with EA and Konami set to do battle over the Summer in an attempt to secure their respective sales from football fans across the globe.

One interesting question that has been asked, is will FIFA 16 will have Champions League rights or not. EA hasn’t managed it in recent years and now we can definitely confirm that it won’t be in FIFA 16 too.

Konami has managed to hold on to something at least, in retaining PES 2016 Champions League and for future games as well by extending their deal with UEFA.


It means of course that PES 2016 buyers will be able to play the official Champion’s League and the Europe League in the game as one exclusive feature over FIFA 16.

It may end up the only one again though, as in recent years we’ve seen EA buy up every other licenses of the beautiful game, notably a strong alliance with Sky Sports content featuring in the Premier League career mode as well as FIFA 16 Ultimate Team mode.

Is the news disappointing for you, or are you happy that Konami has managed to retain their rights to the Champions League as the one main incentive of the game?

Let us know which game you will be buying this year – remember, the full reveal of PES 2015 is expected later on Friday.

    It is a shame cause PES ,with the BarclaysPremiere league would put it way over the top,it already
    plays better than Fifa but it is amazing how EA is able to get these exclusives and not improve in any way,Madden hasn’t seen a big improvement in years since they bought the NFL license! I could care less if FiFa outsells PES,i know i will be giving my money to Konami.

      I don’t agree with that, if there is only 1 football game there won’t be as many improvements. If you look at PES, they made lots of improvements the past few years. They have to, cause they don’t have the licences which FIFA has. That’s exactly the reason why FIFA doesn’t get many improvements: They know they’ll outsell PES only cause of that.
