Fulham FC has announced that it has entered into an exclusive global partnership with Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. for its Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series.
Fulham and KONAMI have entered an exclusive agreement that will see the club perfectly recreated within the publisher’s forthcoming PES 2018. The full squad will be recreated in game with all kits and players to be perfectly replicated via Konami’s full body-scanning process, while KONAMI will also have an extensive presence within our stadium, as part of the match-day experience, and within the Club’s progressive youth academy.
PES 2018 branding will feature on the back of Fulham FC’s new home, away, third and goalkeeping kits, and will be main sponsor of the youth teams’ playing kit. KONAMI and PES 2018 branding will also be prominent across the ad boards around the pitch and within branded areas inside the ground, and on ball person kits on match-days.
KONAMI will also be taking over Fulham’s Family Zone area, with gaming set-ups showcasing the Club’s inclusion in-game, available for young fans to experience. PES 2018 will also be available in the Club Store and online eStore with an exclusive Fulham FC slipcase, and KONAMI is committed to working closely with the Club’s online and social media teams to create cross-promotional campaigns including PES branding within match-day team announcements and goal updates.
Senior Director – Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V., Jonas Lygaard, said: “Fulham is a club with an enviable heritage and a very bright future. It is a club that is on the cusp of very good things, with a policy that continues to nurture its youth prospects. KONAMI is extremely happy to be working closely with such a progressive club. We will enjoy having prominent branding position on match-days, making full use of the Family Zone, and are proud to be presented on the front of the youth teams’ kits, as well as a key sponsor to the first XI.”
Fulham FC’s Chief Revenue Officer, Casper Stylsvig, added: “We welcome KONAMI as a new partner to the ongoing development of Fulham’s growth. PES 2018 is seen as the definitive football title for home systems and mobile users, and we are delighted to be so well represented within such an illustrious game. We also welcome KONAMI to Craven Cottage via its sponsorship commitments and as a new back of shirt partner for the first team and front of shirt partner for our exciting youth team squads.”
