Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced that the Borussia Dortmund Striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is an official Ambassador for PES LEAGUE.
Aubameyang’s participation is an honour for KONAMI and a highlight for the star striker. “I saw for myself the love for PES 2017 that shines from its many fans when I attended gamescom, and am proud to be part of the Ambassador program KONAMI has set up,” said Aubameyang. “PES LEAGUE takes the game to another level making it possible to play against PES players from all over the world. To be selected to work with this talented team is amazing, and I look forward to sharing ideas on how we can take the series forward and show its stunning gameplay to an even wider audience. This is just the beginning though for PES LEAGUE and there are some big announcements coming soon so watch this space.”
Aubameyang, is known for his incredible speed, having clocked 30 metres in 3.7 seconds, and his capability of playing as a forward or a winger.
PES LEAGUE originally started in 2001 by KONAMI as a national tournament in France, and later broadened its scope to become a full-scale global tournament. The PES LEAGUE has seen huge growth in recent years, and the 2016/17 event will be even bigger with each player looking to represent their region and take the title from current holder, Rachid Tabane – the first person to retain a title since the league launched. Full details of KONAMI’s exciting plans for this year’s PES LEAGUE will be announced early December.
