A club statement read: ‘Maintaining the integrity of our club is one of the most important factors when considering partners, and we believe PES 2019 exemplifies that same standard through its unmatched realism and authenticity.’

Konami’s PES brand manager Andre Bronzoni added: “Boca Juniors is synonymous with excellence as they are one of the most celebrated teams in the world of football. It is an honour to partner with Boca Juniors and a privilege to authentically recreate this prestigious club exclusively in PES 2019.”
