Not too concerned about licensed teams, they have a better editor this year. Konami have problems with licences we know that and it’s not going to change unless FIFA dies. But they need more stadiums MADE UP ones are fine, I don’t see why they can create more. If not… Read more »

21 estadios al menos, las licencias más de lo mismo, pero nada que parches en futuros no arregle en pc, al igual que la calidad de las texturas, parches everywhere.
Por otro lado lo que se viene con la liga master está de rechupete, un Amén por eso!

Frustrating that the german league cant be full – great list though. Licenses aren’t everything but have come such a long way in helping it become more immersive

Looks like PES’ license list gets shorter and shorter every year. Not really concerned if everything works out with option files, which we’ve yet to hear about as of now. Glad they brought back some of the generic stadiums from past games, much appreciated, but one question. What happened to… Read more »

Nevermind, they renamed Royal London Stadium to Metropole Arena.

So dissapointed again…
Stadiums variety is a MUST, even FIFA 2004 had much more stadiums than PES 2016!!!
Just make some generic ones? How difficult is it??

Bunch of brazilian stadiums and even less European stadiums than before. Loss of stadium licenses is for me a big gamebraker. I am not happy with the list.

How can you not have Galatasaray in the game but an update wtf.

If anything, i think for next years game Konami need to focus even LESS licenses because they cost a lot of money and konami are a business and not a charity and they need to make more money just make the gameplay good and forget about real teams and stadias… Read more »

The problem is that it looks that they do exactly that right now but they fail. Gameplay has tons of issues this year, starting from glitchy animations that players sliding across the pitch and ending with stupid goalkeepers as every shot in bottom corner is a goal.

No Danish Teams 🙁
There has been 2 the last 4-5 years – and at least FC Copenhagen……

Oliver Bastholm

I genuinely hoped to see 3 teams this year. Brøndby, FC Copenhagen and FC Midtjylland didn’t seem that unrealistic to me.

Brazillian league will be fully licensed, including Corinthians and Palmeiras…

I am missing Shakhtar, Leverkusen, Fenerbahce and Besiktas. Specially Shakhtar! Others are ok and it seems they add Iceland and Albania NT.

Cska Moskva is also missing. I really hope Konami could add more!

They have the license of the dutch eredevisie but not any stadium from holland. The amsterdam arena, de kuip and philips stadium are options.

Yet again there will not be enough licensed ‘Other European Teams’ to fulfill the Champions League and Europa League groups! Why even bother wasting money securing the licenses for these competitions if they are just going to be full of crappy generic teams with fake players who only seem to… Read more »

M.CJC

I agree with that. It’s better to have the license of all the competitions instead of the EU champions league without stadiums and licensed teams.

I’ll still buy the game because it will still be miles better than FIFA to play with. What is dissapointing though is that I expected a lot more licensed teams and stadiums – or at the very least, a lot more generic stadiums. And I really don’t understand the reasons… Read more »

is it me or is there only 20 teams in division 2 for the English league? I know it says that there is but correct me if I’m wrong but there are 24 teams in that league so where are the other 4? Hope it is just a typo but… Read more »

Hopefully it’s a typo, seeing that they forgot to list all of the Brazilian teams as well.

Michael Porter

True. Only the Brazilian teams from the licensed competitions have been mentioned so lets hope but must admit it is great to see the kits that can be made for the unlicensed teams. Kits should be amazing on the ps4 version this time out

No Besiktas? Last year fully licenced after the update and this year yet again not in the game.. And also no other turkish teams.. Pes is very big in Turkey and Besiktas,Galatasaray and Fenerbahce have a multi million fanbase but Konami rather puts teams like AA Gent and Qarabag.. We… Read more »

This game wont go any futher with a few unknown south american stadiums and leagues. They better stop producing soccer game if they cant compete for licenses, rising complaints year by year about graphics difference between PC and console versions, boringness of playing with a very few stadiums and leagues,… Read more »

So they should stop competing because EA has a boat load of money?, If the world worked like that we would all be f’ed. By the way now one cares about the stadiums(I don’t), it’s nice to play in these historic stadiums but that’s an afterthought for me and I’m… Read more »

Yes you’re right I never buy these games to get into multiplayer you know why?, because it’s too damn easy. Be a pro mode is boring as hell because it’s so damn predictable and the AI does absolutely nothing with the ball. In manager mode all you have to is… Read more »

Firstly, thank you for turkish language option. But, I have no idea why Konami do not give a fuck to Turkish football teams.

Where are the Turkish teams? And still no Celtics? They are in the Champions League just like Shakhtar, CSKA Moscow and Leverkusen, all big teams and not in this PES 2016 CL. That’s BS, and it’s time for the fans to have 16 Africans national teams so we can play… Read more »
