Konami has announced details for the upcoming PES LEAGUE 2019 season, which is set to kick off on September 20th, 2018.
PES LEAGUE is the official eSports tournament where PES 2019 players from around the world compete in tournaments with local and online events in key locations, concluding with the PES LEAGUE WORLD Finals 2019. Modes that will be available this season include 1v1 and 3v3 – following the successful format of last season. myClub will also be included in the selection process, with further details announced for the start of the season.
The road to the PES LEAGUE World Finals 2019 will begin with sign-ups opening on September 20th. The online competition will also start for 1v1 on September 20th and will be available to participants via PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC STEAM. The 3v3 CO-OP competition will commence shortly afterwards.
As a change from last year, a new national qualification route will be added to the season. Following the initial online competition starting in September, national leagues will then be established with their own finals before progressing to the regional finals. The new route ensures that skilled competitors have a higher chance of qualifying and that each country is represented by the best PES 2019 players.
Another new addition this year is a refreshed approach to player rewards earned at Regional and World Finals events, that increases in value based on the number of matches and time spent in the competition. More information on this alongside additional competition details will be found on the PES LEAGUE 2019 website launching September 13th.
