Pro Evolution Soccer has always been notorious for its fake team names and unofficial team kits due to FIFA owning the majority of the licensing rights. As with previous years, the licensing issue in PES 2017 are still as present as ever, as it continues to deter some players from even purchasing the series. 

Thankfully, as discussed in our review of PES 2017, Konami has done an absolutely fantastic job at trying to rectify the issue. Players can now use the customization system to not only create and edit kits but to also import pre-made kits and emblems thanks to Option Files that have been created by the PES community. Luckily, Konami has made it easier than ever to import the Option Files onto your PS4 or PC -- sorry Xbox users! 

Here is our step-by-step guide on importing official team kits and emblems in PES 2017.

Importing Official Team Kits On PS4

What You'll Need:
  • A USB stick
  • A PC or Mac 
  • Option Files
Step One

First, you will need to open your USB stick and create a folder that will be used to store all of the Option Files. For the game to be able to recognize the file, the folder needs to be called "WEPES".

Step Two

Next you will need to download the Option Files. While there are countless different locations available for you to obtain these files, we will be using PES World for this guide. You can download the Option Files for the PS4 version here:

Once the option files are downloaded, extract the zip file and transfer them into your "WEPES" folder that you created on the USB stick.

Step Three

After downloading the options and storing them on your USB stick, you can now start up PES 2017.

Once the game has started, navigate through the main menu and click Extras > Edit > Data Management > Import / Export. Click on "Import Team"

Step Four

Upon clicking "Import Team" a pop up will appear and warn you about the cap on imports. Ignore this pop up and proceed to select all the files in the list and click "next". 

Another pop up will appear stating "Select team to import data to" and "Apply player and squad data". Leave both of these options un-ticked and click "next". The game will now begin to automatically import the files into the game for you. Depending on the amount you will be importing, this may take several minutes.

Step Five

After the kits have finished importing, simply save your game and enjoy your fully licensed teams!

Importing Competition Emblems
Step One

Emblems need to be added manually, so they will be a little more time consuming but I can ensure you that it is well worth the effort.

Head back to Import / Export and click Import Image > Competition Emblems. Next you will need to tick "Import Selected Images" and select all the league badges you want to import into the game. 

Step Two

Navigate to Extras > Edit > Competitions. Once in Competitions, chose the league you wish to edit and click Emblem > Load. Upon clicking "Load" select the image you want to replace the default. 

Click save and you are now done!

Importing Option Files on PC

To get the option files working correctly on PC, the process of installing the data is a little different to the PS4.

Step One

Download the option files for PC from Pes-Patch or from another fan site of your choice. For this guide we will be using Pes-Patch.

Step Two

Once downloaded, follow the instruction prompts that the installer provides.

Step Three

Upon being asked where you want the folder to be installed, manually select the location. If you are using Steam the location will you will need is C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. This location will differ from player to player depending on where you install your games.

Step Four

Start up PES 2017 and to ensure that everything has worked correctly, navigate to Edit > Teams. From here you should firstly notice that the league emblems have been changed and as you sort through the teams you will notice the names and kits are now correct.

So, you bought PES this year. First of all: good choice. If you haven't, then please read my review as to why it really is the best football game available this year so you can actually make use of this guide.

If you're part of the former group, like myself, you want to make use of the option files to change strips, team emblems, manager photos and competition logos. Look no further. 

[Please be aware this guide is for the PS4.]

What do you need? 
  • A USB flash drive or external hard drive to put the files onto for transferring. This needs to be either FAT or FAT 32 format. 
  • A few spare hours to edit everything to get the leagues and teams as authentic as possible.

That's all. 

So let's get started.

Step 1: 
  • Connect your storage device to your laptop/computer and create a folder within it named WEPES
  • Go onto a PES fan website - I recommend PES Galaxy - and download the strips, emblems, manager photos and competition logos you like. Download this to your documents folder. 
  • Once downloaded (always as a zip folder) then extract the files, using either WINRAR or WINZIP, directly onto the WEPES folder on your storage device.
Step 2:
  • Once all your data is moved over to the WEPES folder in your storage device, then disconnect the device and connect to your PS4
  • Start up PES 2016
  • Once in menus, scroll along to the extras section and select Options in the top right hand corner
  • From there scroll down and select Data Management 
  • Then select Import Images
Step 3:
  • Choose from the menu, either Strip, Emblems, Manager Photo or Competition Logos for what you would like to import initially
  • This all goes into separate folder for you to choose from when it comes to editing. So don't import team strips into the Manager Photo folder and so on. 
  • Now click your device your device that is connected for the transfer 
  • Then click the images you would like to import. 
Step 4: 
  • Once all the images are imported, then go back to the Edit menu and select Teams, then select the team you'd like to edit. 
  • From there you can change import the images for the team emblems, strips, manager photos, and competition logos. 

When editing strips

When editing strips, select Strips then select the bottom option: Paste Image

Then select the team strip you downloaded the images from. For some strips, the markings (such as name on the back of the shirt) do not appear in the right color or font. This information should come with the original zip folder in the format of a notepad. So it's just a case of changing the color or font for each of these. 

When editing emblems

Select Emblem, then Load and then select from your imported emblems. 

When editing manager photos

Select Manager, then Create Image>Load, and then select from the manager photos imported.

When editing Competition Logo

Go to the Edit menu, then select Competitions, the country competition you'd like to change, Emblem, then Load. Then choose from the competition logos imported.


Just rinse and repeat for each team, strip, manager photo and competition logo you'd like to change. 

Now while this added authenticity, it does not guarantee success on the pitch. It simply adds to the already brilliant atmosphere about PES this year. 

Let's celebrate
