The eFootball League 2019/20 season includes the eFootball.Pro and eFootball.Open tournaments, plus the newly announced eFootball Season Program.

The PES tournaments have a shared prize pool of $2m.

The news comes as developer Konami announces eFootball PES 2020 LITE is available to download now. This is a free-to-play version of the console game available for Xbox One and PC Steam, with PS4 available from December 11th.

eFootball PES 2020 LITE includes local and co-op matches, alongside access to eFootball.Open, the esports tournament open to all players, competing exclusively in 1v1 matches.

The 10 aforementioned football clubs will also be featured in the eFootball.Open tournament, open to all players of all abilities.

The eFootball.Open will divide players into Basic, Intermediate and Expert levels, with matches taking place every two weeks. Only players at the highest Expert level will have the opportunity to progress to regional and then world finals.

Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V commented: “This is an incredibly exciting moment for the future of esports and eFootball more specifically.

“To secure the participation of 10 of the world’s most well-known football clubs is a testament to the quality of eFootball PES 2020 and its ability to connect clubs to their fans in new and dynamic ways.”

Jonas Lygaard, Konami

With authentic squads and professional players, eFootball.Pro will be one to watch.”

Konami has made several changes to PES this year – including adding eFootball to its name – as it continues to compete with EA’s FIFA franchise.

Registrations for eFootball.Open are now open here.
