AC Milan and Konami have today reached an agreement where AC Milan will become an Official Video Game Partner going forwards for PES and mobile titles.
It’s another move by Konami as they seek partnerships with some of the best football teams in the world, with AC Milan now adding to that list. A historic club, AC Milan have been very successful, winning Italy’s Serie A division a very impressive 18 times. They have also won the UEFA Champions League 7 times, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup twice and it’s the five times winner of the UEFA Super Cup.
This agreement will let Konami have full use of AC Milan, in terms of getting the authenticity of the club perfectly replicated in PES, including both the players and the stadium, as well as replicating how their star players play on the field. Lorenzo Giorgetti, Chief Commercial Officer of AC Milan commented:
We welcome KONAMI as a worldwide partner who can truly showcase our on-field prowess in its world-renowned PES series. We look forward to offering the talented teams behind the games incredible access to our players and the San Siro, thus allowing our fans to match our match day heroics perfectly within PES titles.
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director – Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V also added:
AC Milan is one of the most renowned clubs in the world let alone Europe. We are thrilled to partner with them. They have an enviable roster of talent in all their teams and we will honour them by replicating their skills and ability within PES 2018. KONAMI is dedicated to working with the true greats and AC Milan is exactly that.
Konami continue to build their portfolio of the best football teams in the world. Are you happy with this latest partnership? Let us know in the comment section below.
