Pro Evolution Soccer Loses Champions League License as Konami Ends UEFA Partnership

NSC Olimpiyskiy Olympic Stadium Kiev general view 2013

Because EA had rights to practically everything else, PES games instead relied on unofficial names like the Manchester Red (for Manchester United) and so on, while allowing unofficial option packs that changed the names and kits to their real-world counterparts.

UEFA and Konami had a 10 year partnership allowing Konami to officially use the UEFA Champions League license for the annual PES gaming franchise.

5-time winners Bayern Munich have been relatively quiet this season in the UEFA Champions League, given the fact that over the course of the past few years, The Bavarians have built a strong reputation of scoring goals in huge numbers during their matches.

The final four remaining teams in this year's UEFA Champions League are all now coming off huge wins in the last round and the current set of remaining teams in the tournament is certainly not something anyone would've predicted at the start of the season.

In a news post on its official site, UEFA has announced that it will be ending its decade-long partnership with Konami. "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".

In lieu of competitor EA snapping up pretty much every license under the sun for the Federation Internationale de Football Association series, Konami has been snapping up licenses for individual clubs in recent years. "This year, however, we will shift our focus into other areas", he says. "We will explore alternative ways UEFA and Konami can continue to work together, as our relationship remains strong".
