AS Monaco joins fledgling eFootball.Pro competition

By Staff Writer - August 9, 2018

AS Monaco has become the third team to join the eFootball.Pro competition, joining FC Barcelona and Schalke 04. The competition is open exclusively to football clubs, according to esportsinsider.com, and will be played using Konami’s football video game series.

Juli Ferre, AS Monaco Commercial and Marketing Director, said: “One year after having created our dedicated eSports structure, this is another step forward in the electronic sports industry for AS Monaco. The club, which is already participating in different games, shows with this new move its commitment to position itself as a key player in this area.”

He added: “We are delighted to be the third club joining, as founding partners along with FC Barcelona and Schalke 04, in the first international electronic sports league for football clubs only. We are very excited to soon be competing with such great challengers, in this tough competition which will provide great moments to share with our fans.”

Gerard Piqué, founder and president of eFootball.Pro, added: ”Monaco is currently one of the greatest European clubs and a very expected addition to eFootball.Pro. They are already in several eSports leagues with other games and will undoubtedly be a rival to take into account in our competition. The rest of the clubs will have to be on the alert for their moves before and during the season.”
