Beckham signs for Konami + confirmed as new myClub Legend


Announcing the deal just moments ago, Konami has signed a "long-term, exclusive deal" with global superstar David Beckham.

As part of the partnership, the England midfielder will be playable in PES 2018 in the form of a myClub Legend.

Five different versions will be released, with each one reflecting his time spent at LA Galaxy, Man Utd, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and the England national team.



England legend and global icon David Beckham signs long-term, exclusive deal with KONAMI as latest PES Legend Ambassador

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has added another legendary player to its enviable PES 2018 roster of Legends with the signing of England midfield genius and global superstar David Beckham.

Arguably the most recognizable football player of modern times, David Beckham’s 20-year career saw him win 19 major trophies as he played for title-winning teams in England, Spain, Italy and the United States of America. He was the first British player to be featured in 100 UEFA Champions League matches, and enjoyed an international career that garnered 115 England caps. His incredible ability from dead-ball and set-piece situations resulted in dozens of truly memorable goals before his retirement in 2013.

KONAMI is delighted that such a leading light of world football has agreed to join PES.  The Leyton-born star will see his incredible career recreated in-game as a Legend in the forthcoming PES 2018.

“ It ’s a great honour to join the roster of legends that work with KONAMI as PES Ambassadors,” offered David Beckham. “I look forward to seeing my career represented in this fantastic game, and working with such a talented team of people who obviously love football as much as I do.”

Following PES 2018’s launch on September 14th, several versions of David Beckham from key points of his illustrious career will be featured in the game’s myClub mode across different campaigns. A total of five eras will be represented, from his formative years in England, through to his times in Spain, Italy and the United States of America, alongside one representing his International profile. Using KONAMI’s proprietary scanning and animation systems, Beckham’s unique playing style and abilities will be faithfully recreated for those playing the hugely popular myClub mode.

The addition of David Beckham to PES 2018 perfectly reflects the new game’s message that it is “Where Legends are Made.” Fans will be able to experience this directly in myClub as they build a team from scratch and draft Legends such as Diego Maradona, and now David Beckham, into their team.

Additionally, making his debut as an in-game player, the world’s fastest man and most recognisable athlete in the world, Usain Bolt, will be also available within the myClub mode as an exclusive pre-order bonus.

“David Beckham is rightfully a legend within the game, and we are delighted to welcome him to the PES family,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “His fantastic career and all he has achieved will be faithfully recreated for those playing PES 2018, and we look forward to working with him as we unite to promote PES 2018 as the definitive football title.”

Konami confirm new partnership with Valencia CF



KONAMI becomes Official Video Gaming Partner of Valencia CF

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced it has become the Official Video Gaming Partner of Spanish giants, Valencia CF. The agreement will see the club faithfully recreated within the publisher’s Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series and the pair will work across a series of complementary promotional activities.

The deal comes as KONAMI looks to strengthen its ties with the world’s best clubs for its PES series. Valencia CF is one of the most successful clubs in the Spanish league, with six titles, numerous domestic trophies, and European success in the UEFA Cup competition.

As Valencia CF’s Official Video Gaming Partner, KONAMI will work closely with the club to ensure their representation within the PES series is as close as possible. The agreement allows KONAMI 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, while KONAMI and Valencia CF will also work together across a host of promotional activities.

The pair will launch a series of digital co-promotions throughout the year, with KONAMI contributing visuals from the game to assist in Valencia CF’s match day social media activities. With PES 2018 using the mantra “Where Legends are Made”, PES 2018 will also see KONAMI further expand its eSport interests. June 2017’s PES League World Final saw 16 players from around the globe gather to win a stunning $200,000 prize, and KONAMI will use Valencia CF’s iconic Mestalla stadium to host Pro Gaming competitions and other key events throughout the season.

Jorge GarcĂ­a, Valencia CF Head of Marketing, Commercial and Fan Experience Area, said that he is “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.”

“Valencia is a club with a rich history, lots of legends and some exciting talent in the current roster,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director - Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “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.”

Fulham were founded in 1879 and are London’s oldest professional football club. Having just missed out on promotion last season, the club are looking to the new season to build on their progress of the last few years and the club’s reputation for the development of talented young players.

PES 2018 sees the publisher unveil an extensive range of new elements that build upon the previously laid foundations. Centred on the concept that PES 2018 is “Where Legends are Made”, the new game has more additions than any other in the series for the last ten years, including new ways to play, a PC version to the standard of the leading console iterations, and an unrivalled gameplay experience.

International Champions Cup announce partnership with Konami


UPDATE - Monday 24th July, 10:50pm: Ah, it appears I jumped the gun on this one. Unfortunately, PES Community Manager Robbye Ron has today confirmed the ICC will not appear in PES 2018 Master League. My sincere apologies for any confusion caused.


The International Champions Cup is an annual tournament where a selection of clubs play pre-season friendlies against each other across a range of territories. Starting in the United States and Canada four years ago, the competition has since expanded to Australia, China and Mexico.

Currently ongoing, matches for the 2017 edition of the ICC are taking place in China, Singapore as well as the United States. 17 European clubs - including Arsenal, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain - are participating.
