Konami extends rights deal with Uefa

12 June 2015 | Clubs & Rightsholders
Konami, the publisher and developer behind the popular Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series of games, has agreed a new three-year deal with Uefa to retain exclusive rights to the Champions League and Europa League, as well as the European Super Cup.

The deal is an extension of the one originally signed in 2009, and gives Komani exclusive rights to the branding and iconography associated with Uefa’s biggest continental competitions.

Konami’s European brand director Sean Ratcliffe said: “The Uefa Champions League is the biggest prize in club football and we are delighted to have extended our exclusive agreement with Uefa to feature it in the PES series.”

Uefa marketing director Guy Laurent-Epstein added: "We are very pleased to continue and extend our working partnership with Konami. This new cycle provides an opportunity to build an even closer working relationship, allowing us to activate in new and exciting ways over the next three years.

“We are delighted that future iterations of the series will continue to feature the Uefa Champions League and the Uefa Europa League as we also look forward to extending other areas of co-operation.”
