THE Story (2018)
The story started on PES 2017 when a group of friends from wearepes.com figured out -by spending hours in the menus- how to play each with individual players on the same team like the FIFA Club Pro mode they have been playing for years together. The football sensations felt incredible but it seemed only possible to play offline and limited to 4 players vs CPU ...
Later on PES 2018 we decided to form a team called "WAP Phoenix" and we joined an online league called PESFM.org with other teams from which we learned a lot. That's where we met a lot of passionated guys like us !
One day, wandering inside PES 2019 menus doing manipulations, we discovered that we could actually play our favorite mode with custom made players ! That's right : original Pro Clubs could become a reality on PES !
So we started as a small group convinced that this could work on a bigger scale, and we worked during months to etablish the concept and the structure of the WAPES League.
By the end of PES 2019, we first launched the WAPES Summer League.
