Konami has announced, in conjunction with eFootball.Pro, the first details on format and match dates for the eFootball.Pro League, which opens on December 2nd, 2018.
Played on KONAMI’s PES 2019, the eFootball.Pro League is the first global esports tournament designed exclusively for professional football clubs to determine the No.1 esports football team. Six clubs, including FC Barcelona, FC Schalke 04, AS Monaco, Celtic FC, Boavista FC, and FC Nantes will be participating in the inaugural competition.

The bottom three teams will then head to the Last Chance Group where the winner will go through to the Finals.
The matches for the regular season will take place at Highvideo Studios in Barcelona, in addition to locations near to club stadiums across Europe, such as Celtic Park in Glasgow and Stade Louis II in Monaco.
The first matches to be played on December 2nd, with streaming starting at 16:00 CET, are as follows:
