Konami Improved Their Partnership with FC Schalke 04 for PES 2019

Today, Konami announced a new partnership with FC Schalke 04 for PES 2019, the latest installment in the PES series which will launch on August 28th in the Americas and August 30th globally. This partnership means PES 2019 will include Schalke’s official club uniform and the team’s home stadium ‘VELTINS-Arena’. It will also visualize Schalke’s famous charcoal grey tunnel from where the players emerge onto the pitch. The stadium has been fully 3D scanned and will give gamers the experience of a real match day atmosphere.

Founded in 1904, Schalke 04 has been European Champions, 7 times German Championship winners and 5 times German Cup winners. The club finished second in the German league this season and chose to stick with PES for another year.

Alexander Jobst, board member at FC Schalke 04 who oversaw the Konami partnership said:

“We are very excited to be partnering with the world-renowned games producer Konami. The partnership means that Schalke’s position as pioneers in the field of eSports is not only recognized nationally but also internationally. Unlike others, Konami supports our transitioning of our main market football onto the virtual pitch. The partnership will also enable our fans and followers to play with the real team of FC Schalke 04 in the world-renowned game Pro Evolution Soccer.”
