Players will compete by using eFootball™ 2022’s new game mode “Dream Team”

KONAMI announced that the official eSports competition using eFootball™ 2022, “eFootball™ Championship 2022” will be held in June.

“eFootball™ Championship 2022” is an esports competition open to many different players, ranging from beginners to the elite. Since the renaming of the game to “eFootball™”, we have also renamed this competition “eFootball Championship” – formerly known as “eFootball League”.

Two competitions will be held: one will be “eFootball™ Championship Pro 2022”, which is the professional league esports players who contracted with European professional football clubs will participate in; The other, “eFootball™ Championship Open 2022”, is an esports competition in which players of all abilities will be able to participate in.

The professional players in “eFootball Championship Pro” and regular players in the “eFootball Championship Open” will be competing via the new game mode “Dream Team”.

We will release more in regards to participating clubs and the schedule of both competitions in a later announcement.


eFootball™ Championship Pro 2022 – launching in June

This is the professional league that esports players contracted to European football clubs will participate in. Professional players will be selected from the world top players and will compete 1v1 within eFootball™ 2022’s new mode “Dream Team” to win the league.

All games will be streamed online all over the world.


Qualifiers for the eFootball™ Championship Open 2022 – Qualifier Starting in June

“eFootball™ Championship Open 2022” is the largest official eSports tournament using the eFootball™ 2022 series in which users all over the world can participate.

Users will not need to enter at Round 1, which will be started from June 2022. All users are able to enjoy just by participating in the relevant in-game challenge event.

During previous seasons, over 8 million users worldwide participated in the aforementioned “eFootball.Open”.

Utilising the “Dream Team” game mode, the top-scoring players will earn the right to participate in higher and higher levels of the competition, culminating in “World Finals”, in which the No.1 player will be crowned. The world finals will be streamed online all over the world.


About “Dream Team”

“Dream Team” is the brand-new game mode where users can build an original team by signing players and managers, making use of in-game items (e.g. GP that users can acquire by playing different in-game matches), and competing against others users from around the world.
Users can also develop and strengthen their players to match individual playstyles as well as organising their team through signing and developing players.
