Partnership signed with KONAMI
The Liga NOS will be one of the championships available in the PES 2019 digital soccer game, which will be launched worldwide in August, allowing players access to the 18 teams that will compete in the main Portuguese professional football competition next season.
The assignment of the rights of the Liga NOS was officially signed today with the signing of a partnership between the Liga Portugal and Konami Digital Entertainment BV, including, in particular, the availability in PES 2019 of the official teams, equipment and emblems of each of the teams.
"We are very pleased that top-level Portuguese professional football teams are recreated with great perfection in what is recognized as the most realistic of digital football games," said Pedro Proença, President of the Portugal League. "We look forward to working closely with KONAMI to portray the talent and pace of our main league. The aesthetics and level of control of PES 2019 will be the perfect showcase for the 18 NOS League teams. "
"Bringing the NOS League to PES 2019 is a clear sign that we are committed to giving fans more of what they want - more licensed content," said Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director, Brand and Business Development, Konami Digital Entertainment BV. "Establishing a partnership with Liga NOS is just one of the many steps we are taking to raise the ESP to new heights and strains eager to work together to bring this exciting league to PES 2019. We continue to believe in the Power of Football and PES 2019 will be our most powerful game ever, providing more official leagues and clubs than ever before. "
PES 2019 will be available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One ™ and PC via Steam from August 28 in the Americas and August 30 in the rest of the world.
