Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced an agreement with the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) to bring 20 AFA Primera División Teams (and some of the corresponding home stadiums) into Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. KONAMI has also enlisted the talents of national football announcers and FOX Sports commentators, Mariano Closs and Fernando Niembro, to call the action in each game. Some of the premier teams that will be included are River Plate, Boca Juniors and Newell's Old Boys and Racing.
