eFootball returns to offline events as Premier League clubs and others prepare for eFootball Championship Pro 2023


The eFootball Championship Pro 2023 is taking place this year with a new roster of clubs, marking the return of offline LAN events to eFootball for the first time in three years.

All matches will be held in-person over in Barcelona, Spain. And unlike the 2022 edition of the tournament, matchdays will be spread across four different months, in what Konami says will be ‘a more progressive league format’ before the knockout stage determines the winners.

Konami has also announced the dates and participating eight clubs for the eFootball Championship Pro 2023, and a couple of English Premier League clubs will be involved.
