Konami have gone all out with the introduction of many new team partners over the last few months, and today they are adding another to the group – and this time round we see Lazio and Paul Gascoigne arrive.
Following on from the inclusion of AS Roma and Lega Serie B in recent times, Konami have now teamed up with SS Lazio in order to feature the fully-licensed, authentic recreation of the team in the game. As an “Official Partner of the Team”, Konami will therefore receive extensive rights to the team name and crest, kits, select club Legends, and a wide array of marketing opportunities.
Already showing in the latest title – eFootball PES 2021 SEASON UPDATE – SS Lazio and the iconic Stadio Olimpico, have been recreated in-game to the highest standards. But to further cement the relationship anyone logging in to either PES 2021 on console or mobile between 10/12/2020 15:00 UTC and 16/12/2020 23:59 UTC will receive a couple of Lazio club Legends with the big name being none other than Paul Gascoigne, the greatest footballer who has ever lived and scorer of the greatest goal in international football (sorry Scotland fans). Oh yeah, and José Marcelo Salas Melinao comes along as a bonus too.
Naoki Morita, President at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. commented: “Through our new partnership with SS Lazio, it is our strong belief that we can reach an even broader range of football fans and gamers in Italy and beyond. We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”
Dr. Claudio Lotito, President of Società Sportiva Lazio said: “I welcome the entry of the KONAMI brand into the SS Lazio Family with great pleasure. I am sure that the partnership will lead us towards the development of projects that will allow Lazio to increase its notoriety and visibility at an international level. The spirit with which KONAMI has worked in these difficult months to create a collaboration that will be winning is beautiful. We will be happy to work with KONAMI to promote activities aimed at developing and increasing the awareness of the Lazio brand as soon as the pandemic allows it. The values of KONAMI, world leader in games, are fully married to the spirit of the Lazio family by developing together to also benefit the wider community of Lazio fans and video gamers. It is great when two international brands come together to create and develop added value”.”
