Bhatti: "UCL, ACL and Libertadores exclusive for a number of years"

Adam Bhatti, who is the PES European Community Manager, has confirmed through twitter that the UEFA Champions League, Copa Libertadores and Asian Champions League will continue to be exclusive for a number of years for the Pro Evolution Soccer series.

Europa League is properly a part of the exclusive license too but it is still not confirmed yet. Konami managed to secure a four -year deal on November 9, 2008 for the UEFA Champions League tournament. The tournament got its debut on PES 2009 as a separate mode. The year after it also became a part of the Master League. Since the deal ended with PES 2012, Konami has managed to extend the deal by a year every year since the four-year deal ended. Since then Copa Libertadores license got secured too and this year Asian Champions League got its debut.

Whether Adam Bhatti's confirmation of a number of years exclusivity could mean a new long term deal is unknown. The exclusivity is crucial if Konami wants to compete with EA sports FIFA which is clearly ahead when it comes to licenses such as Bundesliga and Primer League which isn't licensed in PES. The big club tournaments would definitely become a huge advantage for Konami.
