The second season of the PES League in Europe gets underway later today as the best players in the continent play against each other to try and book a slot in the finals that will be held in Cardiff alongside the Champions League finals.
Starting today players will compete on PES 2017 on PlayStation, with the top 16 ranked players at the end of the season booking a slot to the season finals at Anfield, in Liverpool later this year. The winner of that event will then head onto to the grand finals in Cardiff and pocket $20,000 for the season win.
“The immense popularity of PES LEAGUE Season 1 culminated in an exciting final in Barcelona watched by millions of fans online. Now we’re looking forward to welcoming back thousands of PES gamers who want to try their hand one more time for a shot at glory. We’re also excited by the prospect of Season 2 being even more thrilling with many more PES players new to the tournament this time around,” said Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director - Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “With the regular European football season approaching its crescendo, we hope PES LEAGUE Season 2 parallels the top football leagues in the continent in terms of passionately contested games. There is absolutely everything to play for, not least the honour of participating at one of the world’s most famous stadiums in Anfield.”
