PES: S04 signs Zeinali and confirms participation in the eFootball.Open
Pejam Zeinali (* September 6, 1988) completes the Royal Blues' PES roster. The international competes in the eFootball.Open.
Zeinali is the fourth professional PES player for the royal blue. The 31-year-old has already made a name for himself in the national PES scene as “Payamjoon”. In December 2019, the German Football Association nominated the two-time German runner-up for the DFB selection for the eEURO 2020. “Pejam is one of the best players in Germany. We are very happy that another international sees his future at Schalke,” said Tim Reichert. The Royal Blue’s Chief Gaming Officer adds: “Pejam has already demonstrated his skills in numerous national competitions and will represent us in the eFootball.Open.”
The eFootball.Open are replacing the PES League as a competition. The participants choose a club and compete against other players with the same club. The schedule and the clubs available are equivalent to the eFootball.Pro league.
