Konami's PES cuts ties with UEFA Champions League

The decade-long partnership between publisher Konami and football tournament UEFA.

The change was announced in a blog post on UEFA's website, in which it was revealed that the 2018 UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv will mark the end of this era.

Moving on

"Konami has been a strong licensing partner for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, with our competition brand being heavily featured within the video game and as part of the popular Konami-organised UEFA Champions League e-sports tournaments," said UEFA events marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein.

"It has been a very cooperative and mutually beneficial partnership. UEFA would like to thank Konami for its tremendous commitment and support to UEFA club competitions for the last decade and we look forward to continuing to work with Konami in the sphere of UEFA national team football."
