In addition to the set of multimedia and branding rights, the FFF will be integrated into a selection of eSports events with other national licensed associations.
Naoki Morita, Konami Digital Entertainment BV’s European President, commented: “At Konami we are very ambitious about our desire to grow the partnership network and reach an ever wider global audience. Collaborating with the national association of a country as passionate about football as France is extraordinary, but if you add to that the fact that it is a team with such an important football history and prestige, it is even more meaningful for us. The eFootball series continues to evolve and improve, welcoming the French Football Federation on this journey is very exciting. “
