Football is coming to Fortnite with a new update from Epic Games including the Pele Cup and collaborations with some of the world’s biggest clubs.

Twenty-three clubs from around the world including Manchester City, Juventus, Inter, AC Milan, Santos, Los Angeles FC, Melbourne City, Celtic and Rangers (full list below) will have specially designed male and female outfits in-game.

Players can win the new kits in the Pele Cup on January 20, featuring a limited-time football game mode, and play with Creative Mode's new Football Island.

'Pele's Air Punch', a new emote based on the Brazil legend's goal celebration, will be available to purchase from the store or as a prize in the Pele Cup.

Regional winners of the tournament will receive a signed Santos shirt, while the top 3,500 players in each region will win the Pele's Air Punch emote and a selection of character outfits.

Nate Nanzer, global head of partnerships at Epic Games, explained the collaboration to ESPN: "We think about the evolution of Fortnite, and all of the different IP integrations that we've done and bringing all these different worlds into the game, I think we've done a pretty amazing job across movies and comics.

“Batman plays with Deadpool and Wolverine and Iron Man. We brought all these amazing worlds together.

"But in sports, we've had an amazing partnership with the NFL, but we haven't really done much beyond our NFL partnership. Over the last year, we've really been focused on how we can grow our footprint more in sports.

"There could definitely be things that we do with modern footballers going forward in the future, and I think given that so many of them are huge Fortnite fans, there could be some fun things that we do in the future."
