Konami continues its collaborations with big name footballers to help promote eFootball PES. A few weeks ago, a PES 2021 patch update received Neymar’s tattoo getting a return after being removed due to imaging rights. This sparked a few rumors that Neymar would become the next ambassador for the PES series.
The partnership includes his Iconic Moments Series and rights to his full appearance within the game. This could mean that Neymar can receive another PES cover in future PES titles.
We are excited to announce that Brazilian Superstar Neymar has become an ambassador for eFootball PES series!

Neymar The New Ambassador
Today, Konami announced that the Brazil and PSG star, Neymar Jr is officially an ambassador for Konami’s football title. This puts Neymar in the same ranks as Leo Messi, Marcus Rashford, and Alphonso Davis. Neymar is widely considered as one the best players in the world. He is currently Brazil’s second highest scorer with 68 goals in 111 caps. He also holds the record for being the most expensive player, with Barcelona selling him to PSG for 222 million euros in 2017.
Neymar Jr. will feature on eFootball PES 2021’s Iconic Moment Series like many others before him. His Iconic Moment Series will feature his time at Barcelona thanks to the license Konami has with the Spanish club. Paris Saint-Germain is currently in a partnership with EA, which means Neymar will not feature in the game with his current club’s licenses. Neymar, being an ambassador, insures his appearance and likeness in PES 2021 and beyond.
