RCD Mallorca announces Konami as new club partner

The agreement will see the gaming conglomerate sponsor the team for the remainder of the season

We’re proud to announce we have reached a sponsorship agreement with Konami that will run until the 30th of June 2020.

The deal will see the inclusion of Los Bermellones in the games conglomerate’s E Football PES2020 alongside the likes of FC Barcelona, Bayern Muich, Juventus and Manchester United, while Take Kubo, Aleix Febas, Salva Sevilla, Iddrisu Baba, Cucho Hernández and Lago Junior underwent 3D facial scanning at Son Moix to ensure ultra-realistic graphics.

Later this month the rest of the squad will receive the same treatment ahead of an update scheduled for the 16th of December in addition to the inclusion of our stadium in the renowned videogame.

Maheta Molango, RCD Mallorca CEO

 “For us, this is so much more than a sponsorship,” Molango said at the announcement’s press conference. “We are making a step into the digital world, which is now not only a possibility for clubs but a necessity and what better partner to do that with than Konami. In addition to this, Japan is more than Takefusa Kubo, who is the most relevant player in his country. There is a very important history between RCD Mallorca and Japan with Yoshito Okubo and Akihiro Ienaga. Together with Take, that’s three of the seven Japanese players to have scored in La Liga.

“Lastly, it’s an honour to share this space with E Football PES2020 with clubs such as FC Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester and Bayern Munich. All of this is an honour, people recognise the hard work and brand, which is a step that we are very proud of.

“For us, there is no better ambassador in Japan than Konami, with good values and a serious brand that thinks globally and that is the key to penetrating the Japanese market. It’s a mutual benefit for the two of us.”

Hosoda Manorito, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer Marketing Producer 

“It’s an honour to be at RCD Mallorca’s side now that there are a lot of Japanese people who follow the club because of Take Kubo,” Manorito said at the live-streamed event. “Seeing Kubo triumphing outside of Japan makes us proud as fans from the country. That shows all the children that it is possible to reach the elite of European football.”
