Cologne to host PES World Finals 2011

Konami Digital announces Cologne to host PES World Finals 2011


Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that it will hold its annual PES World Finals in Cologne this year, with the prestigious competition taking place as the gaming industry gathers for Gamescom, Europe's premier video game showcase.

The PES World Finals 2011 brings the current PES 2011 season to an end, and will see the world's greatest PES players gathered for a huge knock-out tournament -- seriously, and your mom said gaming would never lead to anything big!

Entrants from Europe, Asia and America will gather for a series of matches between August 17th and 19th in freaking Germany -- where they have really good beer and some pretty good sausages, though you should bring your own cheese, we're just saying...

The tournament will open with a gala party that precedes the full competition, which will take place in Cologne's KölnSky venue -- a 27th floor location that offers striking views of the beautiful city.

Konami has been hosting PES competitions for more than a decade, and each major territory has official leagues that are used to determine the World Final competitors -- so about 30 players are expected to take part this year. The attendees will all compete on the PlayStation 3 version of PES 2011, with a series of groups giving way to knock-out competitions to determine the ultimate champion.

"Gamescom welcomes thousands of ardent video game fans to Cologne, so it is a fitting venue for the end of the PES 2011 season," says Martin Schneider, General Manager of Konami Digital Entertainment. "We expect (play) to be fierce at this year's competition -- especially with the eyes of Gamescom attendees on them all," he added.
