Konami have today announced a new special promotion with the folks at Topps Trading Cards in order to give away special Champions League trading cards with copies of PES 2018.

Konami own the rights to both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League and Topps Trading Cards has secured the rights to produce cards featuring players and teams from the upcoming 17-18 season, offering fans the chance to collect the greatest players from Europe’s top club teams.

Beginning on the games’ launch date September 14th, there will be a limited number of exclusive cards included in physical versions of PES 2018. These cards will be available ahead of the official launch of the new Topps Match Attax range, and will only be available for a short period, so make sure you purchase your copy of PES 2018 right at launch or very soon after. Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director – Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V was excited about this new partnership, stating:

We are constantly looking for ways to extend awareness of the PES series to new audiences, and are delighted to be working with a UEFA Champions League partner of the calibre of Topps. These collectible cards are huge with young football fans and they can be the first to get their hands on them before Topps officially releases their Match Attax range by purchasing PES 2018 at launch.

Rod Pearson, Marketing Director for Topps also added the following:

PES 2018 will offer the definitive football gaming experience, and we are delighted to link our 2017/18 UEFA Champions League collection with such a strong partner. This year’s competition will be even more hard-fought and competitive than ever and the agreement between Topps and KONAMI showcases two very different ways to enjoy the progression of Europe’s greatest club sides.
