It was confirmed last month that Juventus will be replaced by 'Piemonte Calcio' on FIFA 20.
Pro Evolution Soccer secured a partnership with the Serie A champions ahead of the upcoming release, obtaining rights to license the Italian giants.
It means Konami have exclusive access to the team name, the club crest and official kits, a huge blow to EA Sports who did, however, confirm that Juventus players' faces and names will remain the same.
The partership between Pro Evo and Juventus means that EA Sports will be forced to create a brand new image for The Old Lady.
In fact, the Piemonte Calcio badge has recently emerged online after a select few were chosen to participate in the FIFA 20 Closed Beta, where players have access to Kick Off and Ultimate Team until 22nd August.
Juventus' home stadium, the Allianz Stadium, will also feature in PES 2020 instead of FIFA 20, something that EA will have to get used to after Konami announced its partnership with the Italian side would last for the next three years.
The senior director brand and business development at Konami, Jonas Lygaard, said:
"Our comprehensive partnership with Juventus FC, one of the greatest teams in the world, is a clear statement of intent for eFootball PES 2020 -- the only console game where you can play as the Italian giants.
"With eFootball PES, playing is believing and we're proud to have Juventus FC believe in us and our exciting future together."
Giorgio Ricci, the chief financial officer for Juventus, added: "We are particularly proud of the partnership signed with Konami.
"This agreement sees two global football and entertainment icons, PES and Juventus partnering together for the next three years, and it will allow us to easier identify with our younger fans, as well as increase our appeal to both sports fans and those of eSports."
