The highlight of the campaigns, UEFA EURO 2020 Matchday, will take inspiration from the original tournament match schedule and features up to three fixtures per day, each played in the online Matchday mode. Participating players will be able to pick a national team to support, with their individual game performances determining who wins each fixture and progresses to the Round of 16 and beyond. To encourage participation in the online event, Konami will be running the UEFA EURO 2020 Matchday Predict-The-Winner Campaign where players can guess the champion for Matchday. Players will enter by selecting their prediction as their base team from August 11th-13th. A total of 100 million myClub coins will be split equally among the winners that correctly guess the result of the Final, held on August 23rd. Further details will be shared in the near future.

eFootball PES 2020 POTW (Players of the Week) – UEFA EURO 2020, starting from early August, will be determined based on the in-game Matchday performances and the players that have been used most.
