Konami has decided to inaugurate the campaign with the introduction of the Glorious Moments Series, a collection of unforgettable moments of the greatest football stars of the present and the past. Each Glorious Moment celebrates a significant match in the career of a great footballer and includes a card with the match image and player statistics for that particular match. Each player or legend of the Glorious Moments Series will be associated with a specific team, with the possibility of increasing performance by combining the player or legend with the chosen myClub team.
