Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. announces it is contributing to premium partner FC Barcelona’s FCB Foundation, in order to help support children’s soccer education.
The FCB Foundation is an organization established by FC Barcelona in 1994. One of its projects is FutbolNet, which supports children’s soccer education around the world, including in South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
In support of this wonderful initiative to increase children’s soccer education in developing countries, KONAMI will donate 100,000 USD to the foundation.
Furthermore, to spread the word about the necessity of children’s soccer education as well as about this initiative, during the highly anticipated match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid (known as El Clásico) on December 3rd (local time), we will display the campaign’s logo in the stadium and hold an event. In addition, from December 1st, FC Barcelona legendary players will appear in in-game events in the myClub mode in console title “Winning Eleven 2017” (overseas title: “PES 2017 -Pro Evolution Soccer-”). Keep an eye on the "Winning Eleven 2017" official website (https://www.konami.com/wepes/2017/) for details.
KONAMI will continue to develop and publish soccer games, in order to help introduce the sport to its next generation of athletes.
