Hot on the heals of the recent partnership announcement with Fulham, Konami have announced a brand new partnership for PES 2018 and beyond with Spanish club Valencia CF.

Konami and Valencia will work together to ensure that they are represented in PES as close as possible. Konami have the license to use the home, away and third kits in the forthcoming PES 2018 and the first-team squad will be perfectly created within the game. Player faces and individual skills will also be matched, whilst there will also be promotional activities between both Konami and Valencia.

Valencia CF’s iconic Mestalla stadium to host many PESLeague, Pro Gaming competitions and other key events throughout the season. Jorge García, Valencia CF Head of Marketing, Commercial and Fan Experience Area was delighted stating:

[we are] delighted with this partnership, as KONAMI are a worldwide partner who will help us to take the Club to millions and millions of gamers. We’re looking forward to seeing the spectacular images of our players in the new and future editions of the PES series.

Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director – Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V was equally as pleased, adding:

Valencia is a club with a rich history, lots of legends and some exciting talent in the current roster. Valencia CF is loaded with history, home to great successes, and some of the world’s greatest players have come through the ranks here as well, with Mendieta, Kempes and Ayala to name a few. With the club looking ahead to pushing on in the 2017/18 season, we are honoured to have been chosen as Valencia CF’s Official Video Game Partner, and look forward to working closely to realise them in-game and seeing them compete for a top league position.
