As a result of the postponement of the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament , the well-known Euro Cup, together with the continued expansion of the pandemic, Konami has been forced to delay until the next downloadable content for the competition-based eFootball PES 2020 . According to the company, after the declaration of the state of emergency in Japan, the original release date of April 30 for the DLC is no longer possible.
