Konami Announces Exclusive PES Partnership With Atalanta

Konami has announced today that the company has signed a long-term exclusive PES partnership agreement with Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, commonly referred to as Atalanta, one of the top up and coming Italian football clubs.

The partnership will start in the 2021/22 season and will be exclusive to eFootball PES 2022. This means that Atalanta will most likely be generic for EA’s FIFA series starting in 2022. Similar to Konami’s announcement last year with AS Roma or this year’s announcement with Napoli, PES, despite losing the rights for the San Siro (home to both Milan clubs), seems to be stepping up its licensing efforts in Italy. Juventus is already under contract as a partner, and Napoli is another exclusive partner — albeit with the latter starting in 2022/23.

From the looks of the trailer, it seems like we’ll be getting Atalanta’s stadium, the Gewiss Stadium, and it looks well done.

While we won’t get a training ground like we did for Napoli, we’ll still get one more authentic stadium bringing the grand total to four:

  1. Juventus’ Allianz Stadium
  2. Napoli’s Diego Maradona Stadium
  3. Roma & Lazio’s Stadio Olimpico
  4. Atalanta’s Giwess Stadium

Another official stadium is always a good thing, and by the looks of it, Konami is really focusing in on Serie A where licenses and partnerships are easier to come by. While we wait for more information, eFootball PES 2022 is shaping up to be a very nice footy offering, and the Atalanta PES exclusive just adds to that excitement.

  1. Again while not a fan of exclusive agreements, every announcement Konami makes regarding new partners lets me know they are really making a go of it.
    I hate these exclusive deals because what good is having such deals when you are missing Inter and AC Milan in PES and Juventus in FIFA. It just takes away from both games and EA really screwed up because they started this whole thing and now they are missing one of the top teams in Juventus and don't have Cam Nou or Alienz Arena  in their game.
