Konami today announced that it had reached an agreement with UEFA about a renewal of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup licenses in Pro Evolution Soccer. The new Konami UEFA license runs for an additional three years until 2019, as the previous agreement was due to be valid for another year.
As with the previous Konami Champions League license, the agreement only includes competition logos and names, with individual team licenses having to be signed additionally for teams to appear in the game.
The Champions League license first appeared in Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, released in fall 2008, while Konami later added the licenses for the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup to its Pro Evolution Soccer series.
Lately, speculation arose about a possible interest in the UEFA licenses from Pro Evolution Soccer's main competitor FIFA, but today's announcement has confirmed that the license is set to remain with PES until at least 2019.
