Get Your Sweaty Skins Ready, Fortnite’s Pelé Cup Is Coming
Epic Games has officially partnered with 23 real-world Football Clubs to bring more official soccer skins to Fortnite. In addition to these new skins, a Pelé Cup will also kick off on January 20th, giving players the chance to unlock one of the new skins in addition to a new Air Punch emote inspired by the legendary soccer player himself. Fortnite is available for free right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Android, PC, and Mac.
With Epic Games’ partnering with 23 real-world Football Clubs, the following clubs will be represented in-game starting on January 23rd: Manchester City FC, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Seattle Sounders FC Atlanta United FC, Los Angeles FC, Santos FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, West Ham United FC, Sevilla FC, Sporting CP, Borussia Mönchengladbach, FC Schalke 04, VFL Wolfsburg, Rangers FC, Celtic FC, Cerezo Osaka, Melbourne City FC, Sydney FC, Western Sydney Wanderers, EC Bahia.
Fortnite soccer fans will be able to represent their favorite football club across ten different skins that offer the expected variants. Gamers who participate in the Pelé Cup will have a chance to win the Air Punch Emote and Kickoff Set for free, presumably allowing them to pick their favorite of the ten skins. Each football club can be represented on each of the new skins, allowing you to swap to whichever team is currently leading in the rankings. Top scorers in the Pelé Cup will also have the opportunity to win a customized signed shirt, adding more incentive to win.
