Fortnite is getting new football-related content later this week, including kits from some of the world’s most iconic teams, like West Ham United.

Fortnite‘s appetite for cross-brand promotions and events continues with a new range of football-related content coming to the game on January 23.

There are ten different male and female outfit variants based on 23 of the worlds biggest football teams, including the likes of AC Milan, Juventus, Los Angeles FC, and West Ham United.


Legendary Brazilian football Pelé is also represented by way of his iconic ‘Air Punch’ goal celebration becoming a new emote.

Players can attempt to win access to the new content ahead of its official release by participating in tomorrow’s Pelé Cup event. Top scorers also have the chance to win a customised signed shirt.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
