5 MILLION FANS PROVE THEY "LIKE" PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced that its Pro Evolution Soccer Facebook page is now followed by over five million people. In honor of this milestone, Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the world's most recognized players and PES cover athlete, has recorded a special message for the Facebook fans! 

The Real Madrid midfielder, and the new face of the Pro Evolution Soccer series, has recorded a dedicated message to this massive amount of fans. Five entrants in the competition will be chosen at random and will each receive a signed shirt.

The success of KONAMI's Pro Evolution Soccer Facebook page comes following a concerted push by the publisher's newly-established Social & Online Media Department. This division was established in April 2011 when just 1.6 million people were fans. Using a wealth of exclusive material to attract new fans and by increasing efforts to lead direct and credible conversations with them, the division has overseen an increase of over 600 percent in the number of monthly active users, and presided over a 1,300 percent increase in monthly page views.

The Pro Evolution Soccer Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/PES. ;
