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.

In terms of a release date for the next trailer, we could see Konami drop another teaser in the next few weeks, so keeo your eyes pealed!

Licences

PES fans will be now be wondering, will eFootball have the rights to the same clubs as PES?

Well, we think so.

With Konami recently adding Italian clubs Atalanta and Napoli to their roster, we shouldn't see too much change in the licenses.

Neymar becomes PES 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.
