Once finished, they will compete single player or online*** in a single knockout string of four games to achieve rewards.
In Kick-off, fans can choose from eight club sides (FC Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Chelsea FC, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid CF, River Plate and Seattle Sounders) or two Women’s National Teams (Germany and United States). The historic Santiago Bernabeu and two stadiums new to the franchise, BORUSSIA-PARK and CenturyLink Field will feature as official stadiums in the demo. Fans playing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC will get their first look at the new Bundesliga Broadcast Presentation when Borussia Dortmund plays Borussia Mönchengladbach at BORUSSIA-PARK.
