Neymar Jr. as the ambassador of Komani’s football franchise: What does it mean
For almost two years, the PES cover image had four main players. For example, PES 2021 has Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Manchester United star Marcus Rashford.
But with a new partnership with Neymar Jr, this could change with future PES games. PES could change the cover image strategy for PES games from PES 2022 and make Neymar Jr as the cover star of its games.
