Liverpool teams up with Konami

English Premier League football club Liverpool has entered into a global partnership with Japanese digital entertainment company Konami.

The three-year agreement will cover the 2016-17 to 2018-19 seasons.

The deal will focus on Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer video game series, with Liverpool’s playing style and kits to be recreated in PES 2017, which will be released next month. The club’s Anfield stadium will also be reproduced in the game and will be available to download shortly after its release date.

In addition, Konami will run special promotions through its ‘myClub’ game mode, allowing gamers to add Liverpool legends such as Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler to their squads.

In return, Konami will receive promotion through Liverpool’s digital and social media channels, while other marketing activities will be organised.

Konami last month agreed a similar deal with Spanish LaLiga club Barcelona.
