Konami has officially announced the date for the eFootball Championship 2022.
It has been a rough start to the new ear of eFootball, previously. Pro Evolution Soccer, with a disastrous launch of their new free-to-play series.
However, the most recent update was a giant stride in the right direction as they look to claw their way back to being the only major rival to Electronic Arts.
EA have also gone through an interesting period, having recently announced the end of their partnership with FIFA, and FIFA hitting back to say that the franchise will continue without the gaming giants involved.
After working to fix the vast amount of issues at launch, Konami will host the eFootball Championship next month, with multiple events scheduled for June.
The plan is to have events for players of various skill levels, and this time around there will be two competitions.
The first is the Championship Pro 2022, which caters for the professional esports players who are contracted through major football clubs.
The second is the Championship Open 2022, which players of all skill levels can participate in.
Explaining the tournament set up in a statement, Konami revealed:
eFootball™ Championship Pro 2022 – launching in June
