Konami ends UEFA licensing agreement

Konami ends UEFA licensing agreement Konami ends UEFA licensing agreement

The Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series, which has always been the only football game where a digital recreation of the Champions League could be made, will no longer have the privilege.

Federation Internationale de Football Association is certainly the soccer game of choice for fans of this sport but has not been able to offer the UEFA Champions League mode due to the exclusivity that Konami had. What this means is that as a result of this exclusive license expiring later this year, Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 won't have the Champions League mode. They posted the following message: "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". When all is said and done, the series will conclude with nearly 87 million total copies it sold. However, PES has never really threatened FIFA's stronghold on that market, so it's unlikely that this recent announcement will have a significant impact on the price of the game.

Konami Holdings fell the most in nearly a month after announcing it was ending a soccer licensing partnership with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). "UEFA would like to thank Konami for its tremendous commitment and support to UEFA club competitions for the last decade and we look forward to continuing to work with Konami in the sphere of UEFA national team football".

Konami's Senior Brand Director Jonas Lygaard spoke of the "unique experiences" made available by the partnership and how Konami will now "shift focus into other areas". "We will continue to explore alternative ways UEFA and Konami can continue to work together".
