Today, Konami announced that the 2018 PES League World Finals will be held in Barcelona, Spain. The event will take place on Tuesday, August 21.

Eight individual competitors and four teams will compete for the 2018 PES League Championships. Below are the participants that qualified for the World Finals.

Competing for the single-player crown:

Country Name
Qualifiers 1 France TioMiit_PW
2 Japan SOFIA
3 Spain Alex Alguacil
4 Brazil Fmestre12_PW
5 Spain joseg93
6 Italy Ettorito97

8 Japan Mayageka


3-on-3 teams:

Team Name
Qualifiers 1 Broken Silence (SPA/ITA)
2 Neo Esports (FRA)
4 *TopPESBrasil (BRA) / Shadow Hunters (SPA)


Each finalist, including the four co-op teams, battled through three rounds of competition to make it to Barcelona. The tournament benefited in 2018 from a new format, as regional qualifiers were held in three different continents. From there, the group was filtered down to the finalists. The new 3-on-3 mode has been a huge success for Konami as well, finally giving the company the ability to offer a co-op competitive mode.

PES will broadcast the finals on Twitch, Twitter and YouTube.
