Konami have today confirmed that they have added to their partner club roster by adding the Scottish Premiership Champions, Celtic.

Celtic are known as the biggest club in Scotland, having just won their 7th consecutive Scottish Premiership championship. The club, its players and iconic stadium will all be available via download after launch.

They’ll take advantage of its stunning 3D scanning systems to ensure that the Glasgow club’s squad are perfectly represented in-game. Each player will be scanned by dozens of cameras from every angle, while the technical team will ensure that individual skills and abilities, along with playing styles, are matched in every way. This partnership follows the announcement that the Scottish Premier League will also be fully licensed in the game.

There will be a Celtic Limited Version of PES 2019. This will feature bespoke DLC and content. Only 1000 will be available, and demand is sure to be very high! Gordon Kaye – Head of Business Development at Celtic FC commented:

We are delighted to be partnering with KONAMI at such an exciting time for the PES Series. The gameplay and player detail in PES 2019 is simply stunning and we have no doubt Celtic fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing the Double Treble Champions emulated in such a realistic way.

Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. also added:

Celtic is a hugely successful club and we are delighted to be working closely with them. Our job now is to ensure Celtic’s presence is perfectly recreated within PES 2019 and we look forward to seeing the fans’ reactions when all the work being put into this is complete and we reveal everything – more updates coming soon – watch this space!
