Is Juventus in FIFA 21? Fans are curious as the next entry in EA Sports' popular soccer series draws nearer if the reigning Serie A champions will be in the game.

Some might wonder why they'd even have to question it if they've been away from the franchise for some time. For those that need a refresher, Juventus wasn't in FIFA 20. The club signed an exclusive deal with Konami for Pro Evolution Soccer, meaning the club's image rights were off limits to EA Sports.

Fans immediately panicked that names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala wouldn't be in the game, either.

Those worries went away after EA Sports revealed that Juventus players would still remain in modes like Ultimate Team, but the Juventus branding was still absent.

Juventus was replaced by a fake team brand crafted by EA Sports called Piemonte Calcio. The team had a unique badge and kits designed, but it wasn't the same for Juventus fans. Unfortunately, heading into FIFA 21, Juventus isn't coming back any time soon.

The PES deal was for three years so the earliest the Serie A giants will return is 2023. Until then, get used to seeing Piemonte Calcio.
