PES 2017 Option File: How to download official team badges and kits


How to download a PES 2017 Option file and get all the official kits and badges.

PES 2017 plays a fast and fluid game of football. However, the lack of licenses is often a stumbling block for many.

Thankfully, Konami has made it easier than ever to get a hold of all the official stuff thanks to Option File Sharing. The PES community does an amazing job of building incredible-looking kits and badges for the teams without licenses in the game, and now it’s easier than ever to grab them for your own game.

File sharing has been hugely improved over last year’s game, making it simple and easy to download and install onto your game.

Check out our FIFA 17 vs PES 2017 video below:

Unfortunately, the feature is only available on PS4 and PC, with Xbox One players missing out.

However, for PS4 and PC users, all you need is a USB stick. TrustedReviews has detailed how to download the Option File below.

How to download the PES Option file for official teams and kits

1. On your USB stick create a PES-related folder to store the Option file. The file needs to be called “WEPES” for your console or PC to recognise the folder.

2. Head onto your PC and download the Option files from one of the myriad PES-dedicated sites, or you could follow this link here (which we used ourselves), download the ZIP and extract its contents.

Then, click and drag the files onto your USB stick and into the PES folder. Note that we had some trouble when downloading the file on a Mac, so grab it on PC and stick it onto USB – that way, you'll avoid potential issues. You’re now ready to add them to your game!

3. Boot up PES 2017 and head into Extras | Edit. Scroll down to Data Management | Import/Export.

4. After selecting “Import Team”, a textbox will appear stating “You can import images saved onto USB Flash memory.” It will warn of a cap on the number of imports, but don’t worry about that.

5. Select all of the files in the list and hit Next. Leave “Select team import data” and "Apply player and squad data” unticked and hit Next. The game will then begin to automatically import them into the game for you. All the kit files will process and you can just sit back and have a cup of tea.

6. After the processing has finished, save your game. You’re all done! The kits will be in the game and you can finally enjoy them in all their glory.

7. If you want to also import badges and emblems, it needs to be done manually. To do this, go back into Import/Export and click “Import image”. Select “Competition emblems” to import images in the correct image size; otherwise, they’ll look a bit off.

Tick “Import selected images” and choose all the league badges you want to bring across. You must then, after importing, choose which emblem goes where (for example, swapping the English League badge with the Premier League logo). It’s a bit time-consuming, but well worth the effort.

And that’s it! All the team kits, badges and competition logos are in the game. Who needs licenses, eh?

If you’re still stuck on how to import the files, you can watch this excellent YouTube video from MadGamer BD, which explains it all.

September 14, 2016, 5:25 pm

Microsoft doesn't allow kit editing on their fascist console. Sorry dude!

Martin Smedegaard Larsen

September 15, 2016, 4:18 am

Because it's an ancient console now...


September 15, 2016, 10:16 am

Hi, can you please tell if this solution is compatible with the online mode? Thank you!


September 15, 2016, 10:51 am

that's pretty sad :( but still pes > fifa, even without license (tbh single is not so important for me) and i play man blue instead of manchester city :D only bayern hurts


September 15, 2016, 12:49 pm

Where to put the date for the PC version? It's not detecting the flashdrive.

Anyone having problems importing files to pes2017? I'm using my 1TB WD Ultra Passport and I reformatted it to exFAT and my ps4 recognizes it however, in PES when I go to import images and the selection screen for my usb comes up but nothing is there??

what about the commentator did he says the names of teams ??

Obīto Ʋȼhīʜā

September 16, 2016, 8:29 pm

You can make Bayern tho, just edit a fake club that exist and turn it into bayern munchen like i did. And transfer the players to that club.

The bad thing tho, is that you cant transfer, lahm, martinez, ribery. You can transfer Lewandowski but he is used for annother name. Because Pes didnt license Poland.

Martin Smedegaard Larsen

September 16, 2016, 10:03 pm

Nope. But the commentary still sucks in the game... That's the thing they really need to improve next year

Martin Smedegaard Larsen

September 16, 2016, 10:05 pm

You can create those players though... it will take lots of time, but it can be done.


September 17, 2016, 4:31 pm

its ps4 only if im correct.

"...Note that we had a bit of trouble when downloading the file on Mac..."

I figured out how to solve the problem when the pen drive copied through the Mac OS X and its not recognized in the OPTION FILE in PES 2017 .
The standard formatting usb device in the disk utility is " GUID Partition Map " , so when u formatting, besides select the root path (follow picture) and FAT as the file formatting system, ALSO select " MASTER BOOT RECORD " in " SCHEME ".
I did it and it worked like a charm , as you like to say.
Sorry for the horrible English, Google takes all the credit.



September 22, 2016, 11:47 am

IIRC it needs to be FAT32.

Maxim Newman

September 28, 2016, 7:32 pm

Tried as suggested and just says Loading Failed. Any suggestions?

Manolo Guerrero

October 13, 2016, 2:42 am

same problem "loading failed" any suggestions?


October 15, 2016, 3:57 pm

Some things that may help others:
- the above referenced file is a .rar archive. Download it and extract the rar file to disk. This explodes a directory structure under a 'WEPES' root folder.
- copy the extracted 'WEPES' folder to a FAT32 formatted USB drive. The WEPES folder must be on the root of the USB drive.

Follow the above instructions to import the file and PES2017 should recognise your files.

Good luck!

Any USB Stick formatted in FAT32
