Although we haven't yet had confirmation that an eFootball Mobile will be released, we are pretty confident Koami will deliver!
So, check out what we know so far below.
Konami will almost certainly release a mobile version of eFootball - which could essentially be a carbon copy of MyClub in the actual game.
We don't yet have an official release date for eFootball - but we know it will arrive in early Autumn.
Judging from previous PES releases, we think the new free-to-play game is likely to arrive around Tuesday, 7 September.
eFootball Mobile will be free to play!
This means you can play the game on the go and never miss a thing, for no cost whatsoever.
As we understand, the partnerships in place between Konami and certain clubs for PES 2022 will remain in place for the introduction of eFootball.
Konami has shown that Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United, Arsenal, Corinthians, Flamengo, Sao Paulo and River Plate will all feature when the game launches.
We know that Italian clubs Napoli and Atalanta have also signed on with Konami in recent months.
PES 2021 saw licences for Schalke, Roma, Lazio, Celtic, Rangers, Zenit, but it remains to be seen if they will return for eFootball.

Neymar becomes eFootball ambassador
The official eFootball Twitter account, has announced that Neymar Jr has become the newest ambassador for the eFootball series.
This also means that Konami has secured the full rights to Neymar Jr in eFootball.
EA Sports has secured a partnership with Paris Saint Germain until 2024, which means that they will have the full license to the players, kits, badges, team name etc.
However, with Neymar becoming an eFootball ambassador, we could see Konami change its Cover Star strategy.
We believe that Neymar is now the front-runner to become the eFootball Cover Star, given the global scale of his fame, along with the exciting style of football he plays for European giants PSG.
Atalanta sign exclusive partnership
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced that the company has signed a long-term, exclusive partnership agreement with Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio (Atalanta), the top-tier Italian football club that recently finished the season in third place.
As “Official Video Game Partner”, Konami has secured exclusive rights to the use of the Atalanta license, including team name, crest and kits, within real-time football simulation games, starting with the 2021/22 football season.
This exclusive deal means that FIFA 22 will no longer include the official Atalanta team name, crest, kits and player names.
Napoli join the party
Napoli joins the franchise as an official partner, in a licensing agreement that will become exclusive for the 2022/23 season (PES 2023).
Konami has also secured naming rights for Napoli's training centre, which will feature a brand new gaming area for players and guests.
