Konami details Ninth PES Finals

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will hold the 2010 PES World Finals in Mallorca, with top players from all over the globe gathering for the grand finals between September 25th-26th.

The gala event will gather the very best PES 2010 players and pit them against each other in a knock-out tournament. Entrees will be selected from their respective official PES Leagues, with players from key European territories joined by the best players that Japan, Brazil, Mexico and the US have to offer.

The 2010 tournament is the ninth such competition, and will mark the most far-reaching competition in PES history. 21 countries will be represented, with last year’s winner– Yasin„Jinxy” Koroglu from Belgium– also returning to defend his title. The competitors will also be able to try their hands at PES 2011, with Konami using the event to show the new game’s all-new freedom of movement elements to its key players.

“Now in its ninth year, we are delighted to expand the list of entered countries for the PES 2010 Finals to an even wider range,” commented Martin Schneider, European Marketing and PR Director for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.“With entrants from Japan, North and Sounth America joining the very best that Europe has to offer, we look forward to some high quality matches, and showing PES 2011 to the best PES players from around the globe.”
