eFootball PES 2021 is a Season Update that delivers all the features and gameplay from eFootball PES 2020 with the latest player/club data for the new season as well as exclusive UEFA EURO 2020 content and the Iconic Moments Series.

As the eFootball PES franchise celebrates its 25th anniversary since its debut in 1995 and over 100 million copies sold, Konami invites football fans all over the world to join them once again as they head out onto the pitch for a new action-packed season of football and prepare for the future.

Konami announced that Società Sportiva Lazio (SS Lazio), the top-tier Italian football club, is the latest to join their partner club programme for the eFootball PES franchise.

Konami’s franchise will be one of the few real-time football simulation games to feature the fully-licensed, authentic recreation of SS Lazio. As an “Official Partner of the Team”, KONAMI receives extensive rights to the team name and crest, team kits, select club Legends, and a wide array of marketing opportunities.

As already featured in this year’s eFootball PES 2021 Season Update, SS Lazio and their stadium, Stadio Olimpico, have been recreated in-game to the highest standards.

To celebrate the partnership, PES 2021 console and mobile players who log in between 10/12/2020 15:00 UTC and 16/12/2020 23:59 UTC will receive Lazio club Legends, Paul Gascoigne and José Marcelo Salas Melinao, as a bonus.

Founded in 1900 and based in Rome, Società Sportiva Lazio has competed at the highest level of Italian club football for most of its history. “I Biancocelesti” (The White and Sky Blues) have won the Italian championship twice, the Coppa Italia seven times and the Supercoppa Italiana three times.

Konami’s latest partnership announcement for the eFootball PES franchise follows previous Italian deals including the Italian Football Federation.

Naoki Morita, President at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. commented: “Through our new partnership with SS Lazio, it is our strong belief that we can reach an even broader range of football fans and gamers in Italy and beyond. We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Dr. Claudio Lotito, President of Società Sportiva Lazio said: "I welcome the entry of the KONAMI brand into the SS Lazio Family with great pleasure. I am sure that the partnership will lead us towards the development of projects that will allow Lazio to increase its notoriety and visibility at an international level.

The spirit with which KONAMI has worked in these difficult months to create a collaboration that will be winning is beautiful. We will be happy to work with KONAMI to promote activities aimed at developing and increasing the awareness of the Lazio brand as soon as the pandemic allows it. The values of KONAMI, world leader in games, are fully married to the spirit of the Lazio family by developing together to also benefit the wider community of Lazio fans and video gamers. It is great when two international brands come together to create and develop added value".”
