Konami and Topps Trading Cards teamed up to bring PES 2018 players some limited edition UEFA Champions League Match Attax Trading Cards. The cards will be available with the physical versions of PES 2018 starting on 14 September 2017.
Konami Digital partnered up with the largest global producer of Trading Card Games, Topps Trading Cards, in order to give away limited edition UEFA Champions League Match Attax Trading Cards for the upcoming 2017-18 tournament with copies of PES 2018.
This is a match made in football heaven: Konami is an official partner of UEFA and enjoys exclusive use of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League competitions within the PES series. On the other hand, Topps Trading Cards has secured the rights to produce cards featuring players and teams from the forthcoming 2017/18 competition. This will give the fans a chance to collect the greatest players from Europe's top club teams.
A limited number of exclusive cards will be included in physical versions of PES 2018 starting on 14 September. The cards will be available ahead of the official launch of the new Topps Match Attax range, and will only be available for a short period of time.
"We are constantly looking for ways to extend awareness of the PES series to new audiences, and are delighted to be working with a UEFA Champions League partner of the calibre of Topps," commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director - Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. "These collectible cards are huge with young football fans and they can be the first to get their hands on them before Topps officially releases their Match Attax range by purchasing PES 2018 at launch".
"PES 2018 will offer the definitive football gaming experience, and we are delighted to link our 2017/18 UEFA Champions League collection with such a strong partner," commented Rod Pearson, Marketing Director for Topps. "This year’s competition will be even more hard-fought and competitive than ever and the agreement between Topps and KONAMI showcases two very different ways to enjoy the progression of Europe’s greatest club sides".
