The cost of the UEFA license equates to licensing seven extra leagues. Top flights of Russia, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland and Scotland are all new to the series. Meanwhile, Portugal and Argentina's top divisions get licensed treatment.
So, for the sake of calling Europe's top club competitions a fake name, we're going to see in excess of 100 new playable club teams. Have Konami actually done something canny on their part or should we still be worried about the future of this franchise? Were they outbid for the UEFA license or did they just drop it so they could spend the money elsewhere?
