    Special Player List Preview

    We have hand-picked players who possess Player Skills that will let you revel in the new gameplay and released them as Featured players. On top of that, you will be able to sign Legendary players, such as Albert Ferrer, Andrés Iniesta and P. Kluivert. You will not want to miss this opportunity to sign some top talents and boost your team!

    Event Preview

    If you are still learning the new commands, we have you covered with the "Starter" event, where you can play matches against the AI! Try out the new gameplay and hone your skills in this easy-to-play event.
    On top of that, in this event you will be able to earn valuable items, such as GP and Level Training Programs, at a faster pace than other events.

Beware of Fake PES Accounts!

We have identified some cases in which fake PES accounts in Instagram and Twitter are attempting to steal personal information from our users and hijack their accounts.

These fake accounts try to look like the official account by illegally using logos and pictures, then they lure people to fake sites and offer free myClub Coins, GP, eFootball Points, and even Iconic Moment Series players in exchange for personal information, such as their KONAMI ID and account information.

Please be careful not to be fooled by such fake accounts and never freely give your personal information before double-checking whether an Instagram/Twitter account or website is fake or not.

Now, if we detect that a KONAMI ID or game account has been involved in hijacking, we will take measures to suspend that account. Furthermore, if we detect that a device running our app seems to have been involved in hijacking, we will also prevent our app from running on that device. These measures are detailed in the Terms of Use.

Customer Inquiry

Please contact us from an inquiry form in-game, in order to provide a prompt response.
You may have to enter the details of your account and device in the inquiry form.
Please note that customer support is available in English only.

VS COM and VS COM (Sim) matches can be resumed after maintenance ends, but only for a period of 24 hours after being matched with a COM opponent. Please note that any time that elapses during maintenance counts towards this 24 hour time limit.

・Due to periods of heavy network traffic that are common after maintenance, we may temporarily limit access to the server to ensure a smoother gameplay experience for all users. In such cases, you may encounter the following message when attempting to log in: "Access to the server is currently limited due to heavy traffic. Try again?"
Selecting "Retry" will make another attempt at connecting to the server.

・In case the maintenance ends before 08:00 (UTC), there is a chance that there will be no Auctions available in the Auction List for some time.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Additional Info About Iconic Moment Series Players

See below for some additional info regarding the Iconic Moment Series players.

  • ・ All Iconic Moment Series Players that you own can still be used after major version updates.
  • ・ The stats and rarity levels of Iconic Moment Series players are fixed, and are not subject to changes in updates or during maintenance.
  • ・ The Condition Rating of Iconic Moment Series players is fixed to "B", and is not subject to change during Live Updates.
  • ・ Converting a duplicate Iconic Moment Series player into a Trainer and using him to train an identical variation of the same player yields a tremendous effect. Additionally, Trainers converted from Iconic Moment Series players still produce an enhanced effect when used on different variations of the same player.
  • ・ You can only trade players from the Iconic Moment Series if you have 3 copies of the same variation.
  • ・ Photographs displayed on Iconic Moment Series player cards are subject to change.
  • ・ Iconic Moment Series players that you have signed may be rendered unusable due to league and licensing issues. If any such issues should occur during a major version update, affected Iconic Moment Series players that you own will be replaced with other players.
  • ・ The stat boost applied to Iconic Moment Series players by matching your Model Team to their team is only reflected in Squad Management (including the Player Details screen). All other areas of the game will display the pre-boost stat values.

*Multiple variations of the same Iconic Moment Series player may exist in the game. Each different variation of a player comes with a unique photo, allowing you to easily distinguish between them.

We have plans to release more Iconic Moment Series players moving forward, and we trust that you will be very excited to see what's in store.
Thank you for your continued support of eFootball PES 2020.

About Featured Players

*Featured Players obtained in eFootball PES 2021 are only usable in eFootball PES 2021.
*In-game player club data is frequently synchronised with real world football data through PES Live Updates. Despite this fact, there is a chance that PES's club data is not entirely up to date. We therefore encourage you to check the [Available Players] for each Agent before attempting to obtain a player.
*The Trade feature allows you to exchange 3 copies of the same variation of a Featured Player. Differing variations of the same Featured Player cannot be traded.
*Different variations of the same Featured Player may also have different Popularity levels.
*Featured Player rarity and stats/abilities will not be altered by any updates or during maintenance.
*The Condition Rating for Featured Players is subject to change with each Live Update.
*Featured Player images are subject to change.
*All Featured Players are subject to postponement and/or cancellation without prior warning. Be sure to check the list of Available Players for each Agent before use.
*You may be unable to use certain players after signing them due to changes to actual league circumstances or licensing issues.

According to the Terms of Use for this application, you may not sublicense, lease, lend, sell, gift, bequeath, trade, transfer or provide use or access to any user names or passwords or associated account settings (including any game-related information), except as expressly provided by Konami, and any such act or attempted act is prohibited and void. You shall not attempt to use or access the Application with any user name or password that you did not personally register with Konami.
Recently, a number of incidents involving the exchange/sharing of user IDs and other account information for the purposes of performing Data Linking or Data Transfers have come to our attention. This sort of behaviour is also prohibited according to the Terms of Use.

If you are discovered to have engaged in any behaviour in violation of the Terms of Use, your account may be subject to bans or other disciplinary sanctions.
Once banned, your account will be unable to access the game.

We kindly request that you refrain from sharing your account details with any other users. We also advise against publishing any account details on social media and other websites, and that you take caution to avoid individuals or organisations that may attempt to coerce you to provide them with your account information.

[IMPORTANT] Security Alert

We regularly receive reports of malicious online behaviours targeting our users. These include instances of phishing sites and malware that claim to offer myClub Coins, GP and/or eFootball Points in a bid to coerce users to disclose personal information such as their KONAMI ID, Owner ID, password, phone number and email address. This information can then be used to access further personal details or hijack user accounts.
A good method of determining whether or not a site is safe is to check your browser's address bar to ensure it is hosted on the official Konami domain (https://www.konami.com/).
Please be aware that these sites and services can take many forms. Some of the more common examples include the following:

・ Websites that mimic the appearance of our official site in an attempt to trick you into sharing your personal information.

・ Websites that ask you for your personal information, claiming that they offer myClub Coins, GP, eFootball Points and/or players. These sites may also claim that they offer entry to certain tournaments and/or campaigns.

・ Any app not affiliated with KONAMI that asks you to share your personal information.

・ Posts on social media that ask you to share your personal information.

All claims of being able to receive myClub Coins, GP and eFootball Points are false.
We have absolutely no affiliation with any of these sites and services, and we advise users to exercise extreme caution not to provide them with any personal information.
