Not only the official licenses on the next eFootball Pes. The agreement between Naples and Konami will also be important for the Castel Volturno sports center which will officially change its name.
Good news under Vesuvius. In the morning the Napoli Soccer Sports Society has announced a partnership with Konami. Starting next year, the Japanese giant will have the exclusive rights of the Neapolitan team. And not only that, given that the stipulated agreement will also affect the name of the sports center located in Castel Volturno, where Insigne and his companions train daily. In fact, starting from next 1 July, the structure will be officially named “Ssc Napoli Konami Training Center”And will include a brand new gaming area for players and guests.
“With this partnership agreement – he admitted Naoki Morita, president of Konami Digital Entertainment – among our companies we will further strengthen the position of eFootball Pes as the definitive video game for Italian football. By showing confidence in our long-term plans, we are honored by the fact that Napoli have decided to sign this exclusive agreement ”.
We are happy to announce Konami as our new Official Partner starting next season!

A lot of satisfaction also in the words of Serena Salvione, International Development Manager of SSC Napoli: “We are happy – his words – to launch this exclusive partnership with an international and innovative brand like Konami. Our goal is to be able to create unique content and experiences for Napoli fans. Konami has further linked its name to the Napoli brand by acquiring the naming rights of the sports center. This partnership is only the latest step in the larger work that is aimed at the internationalization of the brand Naples”.
Napoli, therefore, follows the path traced by Juventus and Roma who at the beginning of the season had decided to marry the eFootball Pes 21 project. A completely opposite path compared to Milan and Inter, exclusively on the historic competitor Fifa 21. From next year, moreover, it is reasonable to expect a Naples also active on export side. This partnership can only accelerate this process linked to the eSerie A which will most likely see the Azzurri as protagonists from next season.
