UEFA ends partnership with Konami

POSTED ON ON April 19 | VIEWS 4490

After many years UEFA ends their partnership with Konami. This means that UEFA Champions League and Europa League will be no longer available in Pro Evolution Soccer. This was announced by UEFA this Wednesday. Will this be EA chance to take Konami place and have UEFA tournaments licensed in FIFA 19 ? 



“Konami has been a strong licensing partner for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, with our competition brand being heavily featured within the video game and as part of the popular Konami-organised UEFA Champions League e-sports tournaments,” said Guy-Laurent Epstein, marketing director of UEFA.

This is the official announcement by UEFA

"A ten-year partnership between Konami and UEFA’s club competitions will come to an end following the UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv. The 2018 UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv will mark the end of a very successful and fruitful 10-year partnership between Konami and the UEFA Champions League."

Remember that only three years ago KONAMI and UEFA have signed a three-year extension to their successful partnership to cover 2015–18, with Pro Evolution Soccer retaining exclusive rights to Europe's club competitions.

Will EA take Konami place and get the UEFA Club Competitions rights? No official word but probably. UEFA entered e-sports two years ago through PES League World Tour. Surely they would like to continue promoting their brand through e-sports and there is no other football game than FIFA to make that happen.
