Konami is announcing a long-term deal for PES 2020 with Manchester United

Konami has announced an agreement for the upcoming eFootball PES 2020 (the new name of Pro Evolution Soccer) with one of the largest names in soccer. Starting with PES 2020, the publisher joined a long-term partnership with Manchester United. The agreement enables Konami to use past and present in-game players from MUFC as well as the iconic stadium of Old Trafford. No stadium needed for Man Red or Trad Brick; players can lastly get the real deal.

The precise duration of the agreement is unknown, but specifically the use of "long-term" suggests that   for some moment we could see this in impact. This agreement provides players from all over the history of MUFC "significant access" to Konami. Legends such as David Beckham, who left Manchester in 2003, as part of the squad will be playable. Konami has used a unique 3D scanning technology to make players more realistic than ever before.

However, the agreement provides Konami access to much more than the list of Manchester. PES 2020 will also include the iconic Old Trafford stadium's "most loyal recreation" in a video match so far. MUFC supporters will certainly have much to do with evaluating every detail of this virtual stadium to see how precise it is.

The Manchester United agreement comes at a moment when Konami struggles in the aftermath of fellow soccer franchise FIFA pulling every license it can to secure licensing. Konami had to operate in previous matches with what mainly amounted to Manchester United bootleg versions, replacing the squad known as Man Red and Old Trafford with Trad Brick. Konami has also lately expanded its collaboration with Arsenal F.C.

On September 10, 2019 (September 12 in Japan) eFootball PES 2020 will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PES 2019 is now accessible as a free download for all PlayStation Plus members if you want to get your PES fix right now. In fact, scratch it.
