PES 2016 pushes out FIFA 2016 for UEFA Champions League rights

 Konami has secured another deal with UEFA for its Pro Evolution Soccer series which will ensure that PES 2016, and not FIFA 16, will feature the Champions League.

This means that PES 2016 will include both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa cup.

“KONAMI and UEFA has enjoyed a close relationship since the original agreement was signed in 2009 and the new partnership will allow KONAMI to use all iconography and presentation elements associated with the competitions exclusively within the PES series,” reads the press release.

The news follows the reveal of Neymar Jr as this year’s PES 2016 cover star. Konami plans to lift the lid of its new soccer title tomorrow, with full details about game modes and enhancements over the previous version expected to be revealed.
