PES League: Win a place at the Official UEFA EURO 2016 Virtual Tournament

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V’s PES League is giving players the chance to play for a UEFA EURO 2016 Dream Ticket as part of the Official UEFA EURO 2016 Virtual Tournament which will take place at the heart of EURO 2016 in Paris, France.

Three PES League players from each of the EU, LatAm and Rest of World regions will win the opportunity to compete in the event on July 6th-7th one * of PES League. All three will have gained their place by qualifying for and winning an online UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final Event via PES League.

The UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Finals will take place on June 23rd (EU and Rest of World) and June 24 (LatAm) and will be played on the PlayStation 4 version of PES 2016. The winner of each UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final will get the opportunity to compete in France with all travel and accommodation paid.

The format of the UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Finals will be two-legged knockout competitions featuring eight players – all of whom will have qualified through one of five week long UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final Qualification events. These Qualification events will start on May 16th and will begin each Monday from 12:00PM GMT until the following Sunday at 23:59 GMT.

During this time, the first 100 PES 2016 Online Division matches a player completes on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 versions of PES 2016 using a team competing in UEFA EURO 2016** will count towards the event. Players will be awarded three points for each win and one point for each draw. Losses will not garner points.

Competing players will be ranked in the table of each UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final Qualification event using the number of points accumulated in that event. If two or more players are level on points, the position will be decided on goal difference, goals scored and goal ratio (goals vs shots on goal). The player who finishes top of each week’s UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final Qualification events along with the runners-up from the UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final Qualification Events in weeks 4, 5 and 6 will make up the eight players who will compete in the UEFA EURO 2016 Regional Final.

Details of all five weekly qualification events are as follows:

  • Week 1: May 16 – May 22: Winner qualifies
  • Week 2: May 23 – May 29: Winner qualifies
  • Week 3: May 30 – June 5: Winner qualifies and Runner-Up qualify
  • Week 4: June 6 – June 12: Winner and Runner-Up qualify
  • Week 5: June 13 – June 19: Winner and Runner-Up qualify

Each event is open to all PES League players within that region provided they are not serving a ban when the qualification event begins. Players will be added to the table of each event automatically once they complete their first match.

A further place at the Official UEFA EURO 2016 Virtual Tournament in France will be given to one randomly selected PES League player. This draw will take place on June 27th and all PES League accounts created by 12pm on that day will be automatically entered.

The Official Virtual UEFA EURO 2016 Tournament will take place offline in Paris, France using PlayStation®4 consoles. The winner and runner up of the tournament will both receive tickets to the UEFA EURO 2016 Final with further prizes still to be announced. More information about the Official Virtual UEFA EURO 2016 Tournament will be revealed over the course of the Month.
