Konami have announced that they are hosting PES 2019 tournaments at Gamescom next week, in a joint venture with FC Schalke 04.

Over at the Konami booth (hall 8.1/A033) at Gamescon on August 22nd, there will be some special guests from FC Schalke 04.

FC Schalke 04 will  also be bringing German well-known eSports athletes Dennis Winkler and Mike Linden to showcase PES 2019. Following the qualifier tournament at Schalke’s season opener, four of the PES finalists will join them at Gamescom for the chance to not only take the glory, but a main prize of a unique experience on Schalke’s “fan sofa” pitch-side during an upcoming FC Schalke 04 home match. Also through the day will be giveaways, competitions and hands-on time with PES 2019 will all be available throughout the day. Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V stated:

FC Schalke 04 continues to be a pioneer in eSports and their all-in approach to gamescom this year exemplifies that. We are incredibly lucky to have such an ambitious partner in Schalke for PES 2019 and beyond, and we look forward to welcoming them to our consumer booth later this month.
