COPENHAGEN, August 23th, 2018: Hugo Games (OMX: HUGO) is pleased to announce that the latest addition to action-packed mobile game “Kings of Soccer” will be the world-famous Italian Series A club Associazione Sportiva Roma — also known around the world as AS Roma.
AS Roma is one of the best- known and most admired Italian soccer clubs. It has won several Series A championships and is a frequent participant in international tournaments. The club reached the semi-finals in Champions League in 2018 after playing two legendary matches against and beating FC Barcelona in the quarter-final.
“Kings of Soccer” allows players to manage a top international club and battle against opponents in real time. The CEO of Hugo Games is excited to have AS Roma in the game line-up — giving gamers the opportunity to play as AS Roma superstars including Edin Dzeko, Alessandro Florenzi, Stephan El Shaarawy Aleksandar Kolarov, Justin Kluivert and Javier Pastore.
“AS Roma is one of greatest and most inspiring Italian teams and it’s an honour to have them aboard,” says Henrik Nielsen. “Our aim is to have at least two of the very best top clubs from every major soccer league represented in ‘Kings of Soccer.’ That’s now the case in the Italian Series A, with the other club being Juventus. The addition of AS Roma will not only make the game even more enjoyable to play for the fans – it will also be a step in taking the game to the next level.”
The strategic partnerships with the top clubs are a very important part of the game “Kings of Soccer.” So far FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Porto, AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, Dortmund, Arsenal, Liverpool, Juventus and AS Roma have joined the game. More clubs are expected to join in the coming months.
