KONAMI are about to revolutionise esports with two brand new PES 2020 tournaments

KONAMI are about to change the scope of esports with two brand new tournaments coming to PES 2020.

Kicking off in December, the eFootball.Open will see the very best amateur players around come face-to-face.

The Open will replace the old PES League competition with users competing exclusively in intense 1v1 matches.

How does the eFootball.Open work?

Utilising the new Matchday mode in PES 2020, players will select one club during the registration period that they will then compete with for the duration of the tournament.

To create football’s most accessible esports competition, eFootball.Open will divide players into “Basic”, “Intermediate” and “Expert” levels, with matches taking place every two weeks.

Only players at the highest “Expert” level will have the opportunity to progress to Regional and then World Finals.

Those who achieve “Expert” level have the chance to earn hefty prize money and could catch the eye of the world’s top football clubs as they scout for their future eFootball stars.

“Expert” players will be ranked alongside other players on their platform (PS4, Xbox One or PC) who selected the same club, with the top 50 for each progressing to the Online Finals.

Alongside the eFootball.Open, PES are also running an additional tournament for pro players that will include real-world football clubs from Europe.

The eFootball.Pro competition will pit the best of the best against each other with KONAMI set to announce more details on this in the coming weeks.
