"We like the fact that Konami is developing the world series of PES together with the Russian Premier League. And we appreciate that our partners think about the interests of fans and fans of the game in the first place. Our goals coincide, the Premier League clubs share this desire, so we had no difficulties in concluding an exclusive agreement, "said Sergei Pryadkin, RFPL President.
