PES 2018 Teams: Official team names of unlicensed clubs

The classic stick used to beat PES 2018 compared to FIFA 18 is the lack of licenses, which often puts off players from jumping ship.

Konami has worked to secure licenses in recent years, with the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund all signed up. However there are still a large number of teams in the game which don’t have their official names.

So you can quickly find your favourite squad, Trusted Reviews has put together the complete list of fake team names and their real world counterparts below, separated by league.
