French team Neo Esports, consisting of TerribleTank, Kampfer and Lotfi won the co-op bracket of the Americas Round championship, overcoming nine other teams in the process. Their opponents in the finals were the Brazilian team ''topPESBrasil - A Squad''.

Neo Esports picked Jeju United FC while topPESBrasil - A Squad went for Arsenal FC. Neo Esports grabbed a 3:0 lead and at that point it looked like the co-op finals will also be a clean sweep but topPESBrasil - A Squad nearly came back, scoring two late goals and missing a few opportunities for an equaliser.

PES League is moving to Europe next, with Europe Round happening at an undisclosed date in May 2018. Venue has not been chosen yet either but the rewards are already listed as the standard fees the players are paid in Asia, Americas and Europe Rounds.

It is noteworthy that the rewards listed in the co-op bracket refer to amount of money that will be paid to each player in the team, not a fixed amount for the team itself.
