Sportradar will be marketing the rights for the tournaments of eFootball.Pro. The scope of the distribution includes news, highlights and other content similar to “real” football. eFootball.Pro had already teamed up with Konami, maker of the Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), one of the best-selling video game franchises, a long-standing rival of EA’s FIFA.
