The new players of this year’s eFootball™ Championship Pro

Five new players burst into the tournament looking to be the new big thing. Some are old acquaintances, others are promising young players. Let's meet them.

After days of signings, photo shootings and training sessions, the time has come to demonstrate the skill that each player has at the controls, even more so when this year's matches will be 1v1 games. As pundit Stewart Westley "Wezza" said during the last Group Stage draw: "You are not relying on your teammates anymore. You have yourself and yourself alone. It's all on your skill, on your ability, on your game plans".


This coming season will show if the clubs have done their homework and strengthened their squads well or if, in case they have not changed their squads, the trust in last season's players has paid off. There are only two teams that repeat exactly the same squad: Manchester United and FC Bayern, who will meet each other during the first matchday next Saturday. FC Barcelona and Arsenal FC have each added a new player to their rosters, with ROKSA for the Blaugranas and S-Venom for the Gunners. Two teams have decided to keep one player from last year and bring in new reinforcements. These are Galatasaray SK, who are repeating this year with Mucahit21, and AS Monaco, who continue to be captained by Usmakabyle. Meanwhile, both AS Roma and Celtic FC have decided to change their squads completely by signing players known in the competition from last year and also new players which may be not so well known to eFootball fans. 

Thus, 19 players repeat from last year in the competition and 5 are new this season, although some of them have already played in previous years. Let's meet these new faces that will surely give something to talk about: 


25-year-old Andrea Galimberti is a new eFootball™ Championship Pro player from Italy.         He previously played for Spal in the italian Serie B league and has reached the 3v3 european final in three consecutive years (2019, 2020 and 2021). For this upcoming season, he will wear AS Roma’s shirt alongside ASR_URMA43 and his countrymen Gagliardo28.


28-year-old Azzdine Ait Ouzdi (Aazbabysk) is a French player from Nice. He represented Nantes FC during two seasons in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020, reaching the Semifinals in the latter season.
